10th Year on Tap

As the number of local breweries soared, so did the popularity of Sacramento Beer Week

Sacramento Beer Week, entering its 10th year, is one of the longest running regional craft beer celebrations in the country. As this year’s event prepares to kick off April 26, the statewide craft beer scene is stronger than ever. California is now home to more than 980 breweries, compared to fewer than 300 in 2012, according to statistics released by the California Craft Beer Association.
