As you should know, we are in the middle of American Craft Beer Week. A month ago, House Resolution 1297 was introduced and sponsored by Betsy Markey of Colorado to recognize and support the goals and ideals of American Craft Beer Week. Yesterday, May 18, it passed.

House Resolution 1297, sponsored by Rep. Betsy Markey, supports “the goals and ideals of American Craft Beer Week.”

“We’ve got quite a number of microbreweries and entrepreneurs that are creating jobs, and we wanted to celebrate that this is a craft,” Markey told POLITICO.

“I think beer has been a tradition since this country was founded,” said Markey. “We wanted to celebrate entrepreneurship — and good beer!”
