Sacramento Beer Week kicked off last night at the Sac Mac and Brew Review in West Sac. The event offered macaroni and cheese paired with beer. Also, breweries from all over the Sacramento area had booths to give out samples. Elk Grove was represented by Boulevard Bistro, Flatland Brewing Company, and Tilted Mash.
