Beer Calendar: What To Do in August 2009

No real themes throughout the month of August here in the Philadelphia region. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Just enough to keep you going through the dog days of summer as you try to beat the heat and humidity. The calendar looks a bit top-heavy, though, in the beginning of the month so consider this a call out to all party planners for some events later in the month as well.
