For craft beer lovers around the country, today marks the kick off to a very special week – American Craft Beer Week (ACBW). It’s a time to celebrate microbreweries and craft beer in all forms and varieties, and the ever advancing beer culture here in the United States. Here in Bend, OR, we’re proud to be in a formidable beer town, and have more breweries per capita than any other town in the already beer-obsessed state of Oregon (more even than Portland!).
American Craft Beer Week brings out a number of celebrations around the country, and luckily for us, the good folks over at the Brewers Association, the national non-profit association on behalf of the majority of today’s U.S. breweries, and publishers of CraftBeer.com, have put together a wonderful list of events around the country where beer aficionados can share their passion with like-minded friends. The ACBW calendar includes a drill down of cities and states so you can quickly pinpoint the nearest celebration of suds near you.
Hydro Flask is especially excited about the American Craft Beer Week because it presents an opportunity to highlight our 64oz double wall vacuum insulated growler. Hydro Flask was the original maker of the insulated beer growler and over the years has put in tireless efforts to innovate and make the growler into the best storage container of beer out there – keeping beer ice cold for up to 24 hours and carbonated for days on end. The Hydro Flask growler has won numerous awards, and has received attention in major newspapers, magazines and online media across the country. Additionally, many of the top microbreweries in the United States, including Deschutes Brewery, Boulevard Brewing and Maui Brewing — those who know beer the best — are customers of Hydro Flask.
In celebration of ACBW, Hydro Flask is offering $5 off of one 64oz vacuum insulated growler starting today through Sunday (discount is for online retail orders on HydroFlask.com only and may not be used for multiple growlers). Simply use code CraftBeer13 at checkout to receive the discount. Additionally, if you order any other Hydro Flask sized 21oz or more with the growler (equivalent of $75 or more), shipping is on the house.
Recently, Hydro Flask took an even greater step into the craft beer world with its March partnership announcement with Vancouver B.C.-based Chrislan Ceramics, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of custom tap handles for the on tap beer industry (nearly 1,000 brewery and wine customers today). Chrislan has been a stalwart in the brewery and wine markets for over 25 years, and is now the exclusive distributor of Hydro Flask growlers and flasks to the brewery and wine markets.
Please join Hydro Flask, Chrislan Ceramics, and thousands of others around the country, in raising a pint this week in honor of American Craft Beer week, the Mother of All Beer Weeks as it is affectionately known. Last year drew the largest participation numbers to date and this year is expected to surpass even those numbers as the beer culture continues to grow in all parts of the country. From all of us at Hydro Flask to you — cheers!
