Craft Beer Week Is Under Way In Dane County

 

Madison Craft Beer Week is under way.

The 10-day countywide festival promotes Dane County's craft beer culture and beer appreciation.

Craft beer lovers can take part in beer dinners, beer walks and even brewery parties.

Staff at the Great Dane in downtown Madison spoke with WISC-TV about the festival.

"We get people coming in from out of town saying, 'You know, we heard this place is really great. Madison's having Craft Beer Week and we really just want to check it out.' So we get to enlighten a lot of outsiders about the coolness of Madison's beer scene," said Reese Railling, a manager at the Great Dane.

Craft Beer Week runs through May 13.
