Tyler, Texas (KETK) — You may not know it, but May 12-18 is American Craft Beer Week .
Craft beer is different from mainstream beer in that it is brewed to have a distinctive flavor and is often made in smaller quantities.
This type of small business is rapidly turning into a booming industry.
The creation of craft beer has only recently become legal in our area but East Texas "True Vine Brewing Company" as well as "Cedar Creek Brewery" are already in full swing.
The week is a time for people to come together to celebrate the culture and community of the craft beer movement, and of course, drink some.
Lago Del Pino will hold a special gathering on Thursday the May 15th in honor of this week.
Three beers from "Cedar Creek Brewery" and four from "Saint Arnold Brewery" be on draft.
Tickets can be purchased for $25 at the door and include the cost of up to five of the beers along with complementary hors d'oeuvres.
Representatives from both breweries will be present to answer any questions and explain more about the business of craft beer.
Texas is the second largest producer of craft beer in the United States with an annual revenue of around $2 billion.
Whether you've recently gained interest, or are a long time connoisseur, this event is meant to be a night for brewers and their fans to connect.
