Beer Calendar: What To Do In August 2007

After a furious few months of festivals, tastings, and downright great beer, I'm ready for a bit of a break and it looks like August might provide that for me. Plus, I need to ramp up my marathon training for the fall, so the dog days of August should allow me some time to that, given this lighter-than-average month for beer events in the Philadelphia region. Got a couple from outside the region, too, for any of you that might be travelling to the D.C., upstate New York, or California areas of the country.
