Weekly Beer Calendar Update: March 8-March 14

Ah, March. That long ago, far away place that Philly Beer Week used to call home. No matter, June can have it because around here, by the looks of this next week's schedule, the calendar doesn't matter and the calendar doesn't lie. It's a great place and a great time of year to be a lover of great beer.

Check out the entire March 2012 calendar over here.
