Harrisburg Beer Week may need to change its name if the craft-beer industry continues to grow.

The annual event, which will mark its fourth year in 2018, is expanding to  nearly two weeks, going to 10 days from nine, in an effort to keep up with rising interest in craft beer. New craft breweries and beer-focused venues are opening in Central Pennsylvania every year.

More than 200 events and specials will be part of the 2018 celebration of Harrisburg Beer Week, scheduled for April 20 to April 29.

Harrisburg Beer Week celebrates the local craft-beer community while serving as a fundraiser for a local nonprofit, Harrisburg River Rescue and Emergency Services.

Signature events include a VIP kick-off party, a Battle of the Homebrewers at Broad Street Market and PA Flavor, a beer and food event at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center. Harrisburg Beer Week also includes beer festivals and a mini-golf scramble, among other events.

The festivities span the Harrisburg area. A list of events is available here.

In its first three years, more than 500 events were held during Harrisburg Beer Week. The events raised more than $80,000 for the nonprofit.

Harrisburg Beer Week is a grassroots effort led by a group of local beer writers and drinkers, including Sara Bozich, Tierney Pomone, Chelsie Markel, Colleen Nguyen and Jimi Werner.
