Congress Recognizes American Craft Beer Week

From, by Andy Sparhawk

House Resolution 884 marks the start of American Craft Beer Week and expresses appreciation for America’s independent craft brewers.

The resolution was submitted Monday by Representatives Peter Defazio (D-OR), Patrick Henry (R-NC), Richard Neal (D-MA) and Mike Kelly (R-PA), all members of the bi-partisan Small Brewer’s Caucus.

“Our nation’s booming craft brewing industry is not only a vibrant affirmation of the entrepreneurial traditions of the United States, they are a testament to the strength and importance of small businesses,” the members say in a statement. “With small and independent brewers in all 50 states, craft brewers make up a diverse and influential economic engine that provides jobs and supports agriculture and manufacturing across the United States.”
