Beer Calendar: What To Do in April 2010

April Showers? Who knows this year. We had a wet fall last year followed by a pounding of 3 major snow storms here in the Philadelphia area during the course of the winter (which, might be, just might be coming to a close?!). So it's hard to tell whether this will be a "normal" spring or not. When it comes to beer events though, normal is as normal does around these parts. The calendar marches on with its seemingly neverending supply of interesting beer events covering the gamut from simple, free tastings to elaborate sit-down beer pairing dinners. AND...... If you'd like to go for a run with me to/from TJs in Paoli, you might want to check this out...then drop a note to me. If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know. $20 and under, down to and including FREE...Pay As You Go (PAYG) also included here Philadelphia Thu. 4/1 - Brewer's Reserve Barrel Tappings (April's selection: Über Pils) @Triumph, Philadelphia, PA (6:00pm;
