Weekly Beer Calendar Update: September 22 - September 30

Did you think last week's beer event calendar around the Philly region was crowded with over 30 events? This week's isn't much different. You wouldn't know that a bunch of the regular party people are getting ready to head out west to GABF.

My Houdini act continues this week as I'll miss much or all of this calendar.

Check out the entire September 2011 calendar over here.

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