American Craft Beer Week

May 16, 2017
(5) Comments on this post

It’s finally here!  American Craft Beer Week!  A time to celebrate the culture and community of Craft Brewers across the United States. The American Craft Beer Week is a celebration that takes place this year from May 15th through May 21st and it’s a fantastic opportunity for local craft brewers to share their creativity and passion.

Everyone is crazy about craft beer and it keeps on growing year after year.  Michigan is ranked fifth in the nation in the number of breweries and brewpubs with over 122 breweries, spreading all over the mitten in places like Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor, Traverse City and even down the street in Warren. Every week here at Nino’s we receive different beers that the breweries come out with and it seems like we are getting more and more creative. It’s not just your plain old IPA’s, Porters or Stouts that we love here, we also love to add peanut butter, banana and toffee to our beer.

Check out our cool and interesting selections.

The Hideout Brewing Peanut Butter Chocolate Porter Single-$7.99

Brewed in Grand Rapids Michigan. A medium bodied porter with a light chocolate and peanut butter flavor. Makes for a delicious dessert.


Petoskey Brewing Cranium Crush 4 pack- $8.99

From Petoskey Michigan. A mouthwatering raspberry waffle cone cream ale.

Latitude 42 Brewing Company Party at the Moon Double IPA-$8.99

If you like lots of hops, then this is the one for you. It’s very balanced with grapefruit and tangerine flavors.


I hope you found this helpful and remember to look up your favorite brewery for the  special events.
