Beer Calendar: What To Do in May 2009

The month of April and Beer Wars is behind us; I'm thinking that's probably a good thing for all of the commotion it caused, particularly in the inner beer circles. So, on with May. Here in the Philadelphia region, Sly Fox celebrates its annual rite of bock-dom with goat races, excellent beer, and followers from near and far. In Boston (okay, more correctly, Cambridge), Cambridge Brewing celebrates their 20th anniversary with a killer party that looks worth checking out. Other than that? Ha, on almost any given day there's something going on, and even when not, if you can't find a good beer, let me know. If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know. Enjoy! $20 and under, down to and including FREE...Pay As You Go (PAYG) also included here Philadelphia Sat. 5/2 - The Breweries of Northern Liberties @Philadelphia Brewing, Philadelphia, PA (2:00pm; free) Sun. 5/3 - Bike Race Sundays @Local 44, Philadelphia, PA (4pm; PAYG) Mon. 5/4 - Philly Debut of Duck-Rabbit brewery @Monk's Café, Philadelphia, PA (5:30pm-7:00pm; PAYG) Wed. 5/6 - Duck Duck Bunny Rat Duck-Rabbit Night @Grey Lodge, Philadelphia, PA (5:00pm-9:00pm; PAYG) Wed. 5/6 - Boulder Brewery Night @Devil's Den, Philadelphia, PA (7:00pm-9:00pm; PAYG) Thu. 5/7 - Brewer's Reserve Barrel Tappings (May's selection: Imperius Pilsner) @Triumph, Philadelphia, PA (6pm; PAYG) Sat. 5/9 - Funk Fest @Triumph, Philadelphia, PA (1pm; PAYG) Fri. 5/15 - Munich in Mayfair?: Dunkel-Dig It! @Grey Lodge, Philadelphia, PA (6pm-8pm; PAYG) Sat. 5/16 - Voodoo Brewing Draft Promo @Capone's, Norristown, PA (11:30am; PAYG) Wed. 5/20 - Six Point Brewing Night @Devil's Den, Philadelphia, PA (7:00pm-9:00pm; PAYG) Thu. 5/21 - Summer Kickoff Party @Yards Brewing, Philadelphia, PA (6:00pm-10:00pm; $15/$20) Fri. 5/22 - Warsaw in Wissinoning 2: Yards Grodziski Night @Grey Lodge, Philadelphia, PA (PAYG) Sat. 5/23-Mon. 5/25 - Locals Only Beer Weekend @Local 44, Philadelphia, PA (all day, every day...PAYG) Sat. 5/23-Mon. 5/25 - Name Stoudt's Beer @Devil's Den, Philadelphia, PA (all day, every day; PAYG) Thu. 5/28 - Steamworks Promotion @Devil's Den, Philadelphia, PA (7:00pm-9:00pm; PAYG) Philadelphia's close suburbs Thu. 4/30 - Pint Night with Founders Brewing @The Drafting Room, Exton, PA (6:00pm; PAYG) Fri. 5/1 - Incubus Friday (2007 & 2008 Vintages) @Sly Fox, Phoenixville, PA (12:00pm 'til they kick; PAYG) Fri. 5/1 - Friday Night Tasting (Flying Dog) @Exton Beverage, Exton, PA (4:00pm-6:00pm; free) Fri. 5/1 - Friday Night Tasting (Fuller's) @Beer Yard, Wayne, PA (5:00pm-7:00pm; free) Sat. 5/2 - Bourbon Barrel Event @Capone's, Norristown, PA (11:00am; PAYG) Sun. 5/3 - http://www.slyfoxbeer.com/index.php/front/calendar_details/1147 @Sly Fox, Phoenixville, PA (11:00am-6:00pm; PAYG) Mon. 5/4 - Monday Night Tasting (Duck-Rabbit) @Beer Yard, Wayne, PA (5:00pm-7:00pm; free) Mon. 5/4 - Duck-Rabbit Brewery Premiere @Teresa's Next Door, Wayne, PA (6:00pm-8:00pm; PAYG) Tue. 5/5 - Cinco de Maio Fiesta @Teresa's Next Door, Wayne, PA (5:30pm; PAYG) Tue. 5/5 - Tröegs Sunshine Pils Seasonal Debut @TJs, Paoli, PA (6:00pm-8:00pm; PAYG) Tue. 5/5 - Duck-Rabbit Draft Promo @Capone's, Norristown, PA (11:30am; PAYG) Thu. 5/7 - Hops Project 2009 Varietal Release: Marynka (a firkin, then CO2) @Sly Fox, Phoenixville, PA (11:30am 'til it kicks; PAYG) Fri. 5/8 - Friday Night Tasting (Tröegs) @Exton Beverage, Exton, PA (4:00pm-6:00pm; free) Sat. 5/9-Sun. 5/10 - Colonial Brewing Demonstration @Mercer Museum Folk Fest, Doylestown, PA (10:00am-5:00pm; $9) Tue. 5/12 - The Beers and Breweries of Colonial Philadelphia @Worcester Community Hall, Wayne, PA (7:00pm; PAYG) Thu. 5/14 - Magic Hat Brewery Promo @TJs, Paoli, PA (8:00pm-10:00pm; PAYG) Fri. 5/15 - Third Friday Firkin Fest (May firkin: Chester County Brown) @Sly Fox, Phoenixville, PA (12:00am 'til it kicks; PAYG) Fri. 5/15 - Friday Night Tasting (Lancaster Brewing) @Exton Beverage, Exton, PA (4:00pm-6:00pm; free) Fri. 5/15 - Friday Night Tasting (Yards) @Beer Yard, Wayne, PA (5:00pm-7:00pm; free) Sat. 5/16 - Sierra Nevada Artisinal Ale Experience @TJs, Paoli, PA (6:00pm-10:00pm; PAYG) Sun. 5/17 - Founder’s Kentucky Breakfast Brunch @Teresa's Next Door, Wayne, PA (11:00am; PAYG) Thu. 5/21 - Follow the Liter @Victory Brewing, Downingtown, PA (6:00pm; PAYG) Fri. 5/22 - Friday Night Tasting (Flying Fish) @Exton Beverage, Exton, PA (4:30pm-7:00pm; free) Sat. 5/23 - Saturday Afternoon Tasting (Tröegs) @Exton Beverage, Exton, PA (1:00pm-3:00pm; free) Sat. 5/23 - Ballast Point Promotion @Capone's, Norristown, PA (all day; PAYG) Mon. 6/1 - Meet the Brewer (The Bruery) @Teresa's Next Door, Wayne, PA (PAYG) Greater Philadelphia Metro / Eastern Pennsylvania Thu. 4/30 - Thursday Night Tasting (Weyerbacher) @Isaac Newton's, Newtown, PA (7pm-9pm; free) Fri. 5/1 - Brewer's Reserve Barrel Tappings (May's selection: Jewish Rye Beer) @Triumph, New Hope, PA (6pm; PAYG) Tue. 5/5 - Cinco de Dogfish @Union Jack's, Boyertown, PA (3:00pm; PAYG) Wed. 5/6 - Brewer's Reserve Barrel Tappings (May's selection: Übermensch Pilsner) @Triumph, Princeton, NJ (6pm; PAYG) Fri. 5/8-Fri. 5/15 - 3rd Annual Homebrew Contest @Appalachian Brewing, Camp Hill, PA (see website for details) Wed. 5/13 - Special Tapping (Ommegang Obamagang) @Isaac Newton's, Newtown, PA (4pm; PAYG) Thu. 5/14 - Thursday Night Tasting (Left Hand) @Isaac Newton's, Newtown, PA (7pm-9pm; free) Fri. 5/15 - Special Event @Weyerbacher Brewery, Easton, PA (5:00pm-7:00pm; free samples) Thu. 5/21 - Thursday Night Tasting (Flying Dog) @Isaac Newton's, Newtown, PA (7pm-9pm; free) Sat. 5/30 - Spring Craft Beer Festival @Historic Prison Yard & Museum, Mt.
