Celebrate! It's American Craft Beer Week In Myrtle Beach

Do you love craft beer? If so, you're not alone. Often described as "pure happiness in a glass," craft beer is the fastest growing segment of the beverage industry.

This week is a very special one for craft beer lovers. It's American Craft Beer Week and it runs through May 22.

Craft beer is not your father's brew in a bottle. The Brewers Association, a group whose members are small and independent American brewers of craft beer, defines craft beers as "beers whose flavor derives from traditional or innovative brewing ingredients and their fermentation."

The best place in Myrtle Beach to observe the week set aside to honor the awesomeness of craft brews is right in Broadway at the Beach at Liberty Brewery & Grill, the area's first microbrewery.

Liberty Brewery & Grill prepares craft beers that "celebrate the bounty of the American farmer and pre-Prohibition style brewing methods." At the restaurant's entrance, a replica of the Statute of Liberty — decorated with the the colors, stripes and stars of the American flag — welcomes guests and sets the tone. This is the brewery that invites "your hungry, your thirsty and fun-loving" to enjoy the pleasures of award-winning draft beers made right on site. But don't miss Liberty's delicious comfort foods like burgers, wings, mac & cheese, and pizza.

Liberty is celebrating the week with a variety of specials. Wednesday (May 18) you can grab a classic Angus beef burger and a Liberty Core Brew Pint for just $10. On Thursday (May 19) at 4 p.m., stop by for the tapping of Firkin, a dry-hopped grapefruit red ale. At 4 p.m. on Friday (May 20), a new beer will be introduced that's a collaboration between Liberty and another Myrtle Beach brewer, New South Brewing — and there will be a live band performing.

On Saturday (May 21) the excitement reaches a high point for craft beer adventurers when Liberty stages its "unique beer takeover." Specialty flavors will be served, including Thomas Creek Banana Split Chocolate Stout, Lagunitas The Waldos' Special, Ballast Point Watermelon Dorado, Terrapin Poivre Potion Saison, Coast Blackbeerd Imperial Stout, Freehouse The Mullet and more.

On Sunday (May 22), the weekend winds down as Liberty offers all of its core brews at $1 off.

As the Brewers Association puts it so well, "each glass of craft beer displays the creativity and passion of its makers and the complexity of its ingredients." It's versatile because it's "great on its own and also enhances the taste of food when paired."

If you're a beer connoisseur — or just enjoy a glass of beer every now and then — this is a great week to stop by and join in the celebration and introduction of new beer flavor creations at Liberty Brewery & Grill.

You may even want to start planning your Craft Beer celebration for 2017, because by the end of summer 2016, another great brewery, American Tap House, will be joining Liberty Brewery & Grill on the quest to provide guests with unique taste experiences.

Shake, Rattle & Roll: Elvis Festival Sanctioned By Graceland Comes To Legends In Concert April 28 – May 1

If you're an Elvis fan, it's now or never to get your 2016 tickets to one of the best events held in Myrtle Beach all year. Surrender to this opportunity to watch performers do classic Elvis songs from his Jailhouse Rock days through the Vegas years. Let yourself be transported as you savor an extraordinary sense of deja vu.

After an Opening Celebration at the beach on Thursday, the festival moves to the Legends In Concert Theater at Broadway at the Beach. From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 29, there will be performances by Elvis tribute artists from around the world. It's Round 1 of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest. Once the show starts, you'll be saying that's alright! And, don't even entertain a suspicion that these performances will be anything but fun.

This event has both professional and nonprofessional divisions, so if you're an amateur who channels Elvis, you can even get in on the action.

This quest for glory continues at Legends In Concert from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. The cumulative scores from Friday and Saturday actually determine who goes on to the finals on Sunday.

You'll have another opportunity to get all shook up by Elvis tunes when you attend the two headline shows on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.

A special "Elvis Festival Edition" of the Legends in Concert show will rock the house on Friday night. Backed by the incredible Legends In Concert Band, 2014's Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Jay Dupuis will perform as Elvis, while others pay tribute to Barry White, the Blues Brothers, George Strait, and Taylor Swift.

The party continues Saturday night when more artists put on their blue suede shoes and hi-heel sneakers for the 2016 edition of "Elvis Presley, The Legend."

2011 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist, Cody Ray Slaughter, will perform as the early Elvis. Last year's Elvis Festival Champion Di Light is coming all the way from Brazil to pay tribute to Elvis' Vegas years. Jay Dupuis joins in, along with World Champion Elvis Tribute Artist Michael Chambliss. They'll be backed by the Change of Habit Tribute Band.

Lawdy Miss Clawdy! If you're a true Elvis fan, you'll be crying in the chapel by Sunday morning if you miss out on these two great evenings!

Don't fret, there will be one more chance to see some great tributes to Elvis, the guitar man. On Sunday, the quest for the 2016 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist continues. Five finalists from each division will perform. At stake: prize money and the chance to represent Myrtle Beach at the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest held during Elvis Week in Memphis.

This is an unbelievable weekend that no true Elvis fan should miss. Suspicious minds might think that tickets aren't available. But you can still get in on the fun. Call for tickets at 888-406-5885.

And, don't be cruel. Invite your friends to come along.
