ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - It's Craft Beer Week, which event president Michael Sweeney says is a time to celebrate the St. Louis

Sweeney says the number of local craft breweries has exploded since Craft Beer Week began a decade ago.  And new breweries are seeking out their niche.

 You don’t see these breweries all brewing the same kinds of beer, you’ve got breweries that focus on German or English styles, and you have breweries that focus on Belgian styles. It’s very cool to see not only the breweries trying to do new things but all of them doing their own thing as well,” he says.

More than a hundred events are planned across the next week, and they're all across the region. The complete schedule is at STL Beer Week. com.
