There are just a few days left to the start of the Craft Beer Week 2020, the largest "widespread event" in Spokane, WA, of the beer sector, which aims to celebrate quality beer produced by independent and craft breweries.
From 2 to 8 March, a rich program of tastings, dinners with combinations, meetings with brewers, visits to production plants, presentations of new beers, festivals, special offers, and much more are expected.
Each initiative is organized independently by pubs, breweries, beershops, restaurants, cafes, wine bars, associations, or e-commerce sites.
In a dedicated section, they have reported various events divided by date and by region on the site of the event.
Craft Beer Week 2020
Last year 546 participants were registered for a total of 597 events and promotions. Important figures parallel the growth of the entire sector. In 2010 in Spokane, we could count 311 craft breweries; currently, there are over 850 plants. In general, per capita, production, and beer consumption have increased, while export volumes have even doubled. More specifically, the market share related to craft beer has recently exceeded 3%.
The Craft Beer Week will begin Monday, March 2, but, in the previous weekend, there will be an "early" during the Festival of Craft Beers (from Friday, February 28 to Sunday, March 1).
The real "event within the event" will be the Ball. At 7.00 pm on Friday, 28 February, eight unreleased beers will be present from as many producers, which will be at the party's thorns throughout the weekend.
