FRANKFORT, MI – Stormcloud Brewing Company is joining other small and independent craft breweries across the nation in celebration of American Craft Beer Week, happening May 16-22, 2016. For the 11th year in a row, American Craft Beer Week is an opportunity for craft brewers around the nation to commemorate their art and tradition with craft beer enthusiasts.
With nearly 4,300 breweries operating in the United States by the end of last year – the highest number of active breweries since 1873 – beer drinkers and craft aficionados have many reasons to celebrate this year. Stormcloud Brewing Company is taking part in the celebration with daily beer specials combined with food pairings, in addition to offering an American Craft Beer Week Punch Card. Customers are encouraged to try seven different Stormcloud beers during the weeklong event, then return their punch cards for a chance to win a $50 Stormcloud Gift Card.
“The intent with the punch cards is to get our customers out of their beer comfort zones and to try something new,” says Rick Schmitt, co-owner of Stormcloud. “We’re all guilty of regularly drinking our one favorite beer. But in the spirit of American Craft Beer Week, we’re challenging our customers to discover the immense variety of beer styles and flavors we are crafting by hand, right here in Frankfort.”
Stormcloud will wrap up American Craft Beer Week with a special Barrel-Aged Tap Takeover in the brewery’s downtown Frankfort pub. Patrons will get a taste of popular Stormcloud beers that have been diligently aged in Bourbon, Tequila and Scotch barrels. The Barrel-Aged Tap Takeover will take place the final three days of American Craft Beer Week: May 20-22.
