american craft beer week in underway! congress gave the celebration quite a boost yesterday when the house passed h.r. resolution 1297. it reads, in part:
[T]he House of Representatives supports the goals and ideals of American Craft Beer Week, as founded by the Brewers Association;
recognizes the significant contributions of craft brewers to the economy of the United States;
and encourages beer-lovers of the United States to celebrate American Craft Beer Week through events at microbreweries, brewpubs, and beer stores across the United States to appreciate the accomplishments of craft brewers.
i did my small part by having a seasonal sam adams (a noble pils) at a business lunch this afternoon (and should add a few more craft beers to the list by weeks end) :D
