Beer Calendar: What To Do in July 2011

As the weather heats up around Philadelphia, so does the Beer Calendar. Wilmington is putting on their own Beer Week and some of the events look well worth a train ride or drive. I've captured many of their events below; but here's a link to their website for the most up-to-date and complete.

Stay cool, and hydrated, at any of the fine-looking beer events scheduled throughout the month of July.

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