Beer Calendar: What To Do in March 2012

After all these years of doing the Philly Beer Calendar, I've begun to run out of superlatives to describe the events calendar and all of the creative energy that our brewers and bar owners have around here. March: case in point.

Oh, and this one event. I'm going to throw it up top here, since I don't believe I've ever had a webcast on the calendar of events and it really doesn't have a geographical place. On March 15, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., Dr. Charles Bamforth will be conducting an online presentation called: "More Advanced Beer and Brewing: “Tips, Tricks, and Tidbits You Wish You Knew". The registration and attendance are free and it looks like there'll be presentation materials to download after the call. If you're a 9-5 type of desk jockey, this sounds like a day worth taking a late lunch.

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