Since its inception in 2010, Madison Craft Beer Week (MCBW) has promoted Madison’s thriving craft beer culture by sponsoring a ten-day (two weekend) festival that highlights Wisconsin’s regional brewing heritage and serves as a showcase for the Madison area’s breweries, restaurants, pubs, caterers, retailers, entertainers, and other businesses with ties to the craft beer community.
Wisconsin’s largest craft beer week returns May 1-10, 2015 to celebrate its 5th anniversary! Over 80 different Greater Madison area restaurants, pubs and breweries will host more than 350 events as part of this year’s MCBW. Craft beer lovers will have the opportunity to choose from a multitude of events ranging from beer dinners and food pairings to beer history walks, beer 101 classes and brewery parties.
This year’s “Common Thread” collaboration beer, an annual tradition for MCBW, will be made exclusively by female brewers in Wisconsin. “We are excited to highlight Wisconsin’s female brewers in this year’s Common Thread beer,” said Robyn Klinge, co-founder of Madison Craft Beer Week. “The craft beer industry is male-dominated, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t talented female brewers out there. Our goal is to bring this group together, shake up the image of what a craft brewer looks like and show off our brewing skills,” added Klinge.
