Get ready to raise a glass as the Temecula Valley gears up to celebrate Craft Brew Month. Held annually throughout the month of May, Craft Brew Month shines a spotlight on the region's vibrant and innovative breweries, up-and-coming meaderies, and the many passionate artisans working behind the scenes.

From fruit-forward meads to hoppy IPAs and smooth, malty stouts, there is something to delight every palate. Visitors who download the Temecula Valley Craft Brew Month digital pass can check in at participating breweries and collect points for a souvenir glass or other prizes. No tickets or reservations are necessary.

In addition to craft beer breweries, two Temecula Valley meaderies will participate in Craft Brew Month: Batch Mead and Chubby Cheeks Meadery. Mead is an alcoholic beverage made with fermented honey and featuring fruit, hops, spices, and/or grains.

"Craft Brew Month is a celebration of creativity, community, and craftsmanship," said Scott A. Wilson, CEO of Visit Temecula Valley. "Our local breweries and meaderies pour their hearts and souls into each batch, and Craft Brew Month is a great opportunity for them to showcase their dedication and talent."
