The Lancaster BrewFest isn't just a one-day affair this year. It's a full week.

Lancaster Brew Week kicks off Sunday (Aug. 12) with the tapping of a collaboration beer made by Double Edge Brewing, Combustion Brewery and Outerbelt Brewing, and culminates Aug. 18 with the Lancaster BrewFest.

The weeklong celebration features more than 20 events, including live music, food trucks, a rib fest, tap takeovers, homebrewing competition, yoga and comedy night.

The special Brew Week beer will be tapped at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at Double Edge. It's a session New England-style IPA that clocks in at 4.8 percent alcohol by volume.

"I've never made a hazy IPA before so I'm pretty excited," Double Edge co-founder and brewer Zac Williams said. "We've never seen a session version of a New England-style IPA and we thought it'd be fun to try," he added, when asked why they selected that style.

Hazy IPAs are hot. The Brewers Association, the Boulder, Colo.-based trade group, announced this week that it has received a total of 706 entries in three "Juicy/Hazy" categories for this year's Great American Beer Festival. This year marks the first time in more than a decade that American-style IPA isn't the top entered category.

The fifth BrewFest takes place from 5 to 10 p.m. Aug. 18.
