August has one last full week of seven days remaining and the beer calendar is complying with at least double that number of fun-looking beer events. Give 'em a gander (a look, that is, not a male goose) and get out there and have some late summer fun to prove that not all the fun is at The Shore.
And if you want to see William Reed and Yours Truly carry on the success (and then some) from PBW at The Four Seasons, come on out to Kan Jam 2011 at Sly Fox in Phoenixville on Sunday.
Check out the entire August 2011 calendar over here.
If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
