While it is true that beer fests today operate year-round, the highest concentration still occurs in the summer and early autumn months, bookended by the Øl Festival in Copenhagen in May and Denver's Great American Beer Festival (GABF) in late September, which puts us squarely in the centre right now.

Anheuser-Busch InBev has announced a major restructure of its business, including a number of new senior appointments, following the acquisition of SABMiller.
