Beer Calendar: What To Do in August 2012

Thanks for those of you who expressed strong feelings for the monthly calendar (and weekly updates) here at The Brew Lounge. I had little doubt that it was one of the most popular features. As much as I love to write and convey thoughts through personal stories and informational articles, I realize that this is an invaluable service to many of you who have no other way of comprehensively finding out what is going on around the always very busy Philadelphia calendar of beer events.

Let's keep it going here with the August calendar.

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