On top of the beer releases, there are other happenings this weekend at Back Shed including a food truck, live music, and a fundraiser.

According to, American Craft Beer Week is "the official start of beer season, when temps rise, backyard grills heat up, taproom patios reopen, and lawn games get serious. Time to stretch your palate. Lift some pints. Get into shape for a fun, flavorful summer."

The Brewers Association launched American Craft Beer Week in 2006 to support independent brewers and craft breweries.
