Weekly Beer Calendar Update: December 16-December 31

Here's one last weekly calendar update until 2011. Must admit that it's not too shabby looking of a calendar given the busy holiday season. The Brew Lounge is going to go fairly quiet for the next two weeks, save for a In Memoriam piece, a year-end wrap-up, and the New Year's Eve guide. So, here's the last 16 days worth of beer calendar events in and around Philadelphia. Check out the entire December 2010 calendar over here. If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
