In 2006, the Brewers Association decided to make American Beer Month (traditionally in July), into a week-long coordinated effort timed before the busy summer beer season.

One week’s worth of national activities was found to be more manageable and thus more effective. Plus, the term “craft” was added to the title in order to dial in the focus of the events. This week has become the largest national effort focusing on American craft beer, and remains so today.
