Weekly Beer Calendar Update: May 7-May 13

The second week of May isn't quite as jam-packed as the first week. Maybe Mother's Day, maybe a tailing off leading into Memorial Day weekend, and then SAVOR, has something to do with it. Still, it's difficult to shake a mash paddle and not hit a decent beer event somewhere in your neck of the woods. Go out, have fun, no excuses.
