Allow Me to Re-Introduce Myself...Again
Last month, I began to introduce (and for some of you, re-introduce) content from The Brew Lounge from over the past few years. Not that I'm running short of new content lately or am lazy. Ha! To think...Rather, I've realized that as the forum has outgrown the size of the original room here at TBL, there are many of you who were not around for some of this original content and may not have found your way to it since you've started hanging out with me. Sometimes I take for granted that with roughly 1500 different pieces of writing here, and despite my attempts to group them off to the right through categories, or sorted by month/year, or joined by "tags", the material can still be difficult to get to if you don't know where to look. My first re-introduction of material focused on Reviews of Establishments (approx. 100) that I have done and continue to do. Today, I point you to a couple of more tactical resources that I put together, a calendar and a notable anniversary listing. The calendar is updated every month and includes events that I feel are interesting to me and could be of interest to you. It's purposely not meant to be an exhaustive list, rather those events that I will, might, should, or could do during the month around Philadelphia and beyond. Or sometimes I throw an event listing on there just cuz I think it sounds like a cool event. Speaking of interest, the notable anniversary listings show every fifth year anniversary being celebrated by breweries/brew pubs that are currently still operating. Just another way of bringing recognition to the folks who continue to bring us the fine beer that we enjoy. Carry on, friends...I'm at Ortino's now, power-blogging for Big, Bad, Belgian (50-year-old) Dan.
