Great news, everyone! It's American Craft Beer Week!

What's American Craft Beer Week? It's a nationwide celebration of all things craft beer, running from May 16 to 22. And it's going on right now at restaurants and bars all across South Florida.

Getting involved is simple: Just pony up to any one of the following events happening now through Sunday. Most of them are free to go to, with your only price of admission being the beer you drink, which is often on discount throughout the week. All of them should be a rockin' great time.

We've posted a short description of the ACBW events after the jump. For full information, visit the ACBW in South Florida Facebook page, hosted by Fresh Beer Inc. (the guys and gals responsible for getting great craft beer into your hands in South Florida).
