Beer Calendar: What To Do in May 2011

As surely as May flowers alive with new life, so too does the Philly Beer Calendar. Think May looks a little light compared to past months? Just get through Memorial Day and see what June and Philly Beer Week has in store for us all.

If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
