American Craft Beer Week 2017 Events in Shreveport-Bossier

Just a few short years ago, American Craft Beer Week would have come and gone relatively quietly in Shreveport-Bossier. That’s changed now that Shreveport and Bossier City are home to three popular craft breweries and a good number of bars, restaurants and retail stores that understand, curate and promote the craft beer movement. Here are five great-sounding ACBW ’17 events that caught our eye.

You must be 21 years old or older to attend these events. Please celebrate responsibly and please, please do not drink and drive.

For the Love of Beer: A Celebration of Great Raft Brewing at Sainte Terre
Tuesday, May 16, 6:30 p.m. 
As we mentioned in our earlier post on this event, Great Raft Brewing and Sainte Terre have been planning this collaborative dinner and discussion for quite some time. Aside from a great-looking menu and plenty of Great Raft Brewing beer, there’s the promise of a discussion led by Jennie Merrill, director of education for the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans.
Tickets: $75, purchase here.
RSVP to the official Facebook event.
