Beer Calendar: What To Do in January 2013

Resolve to drink better beer and be involved in supporting your local brewers and bars. Here's a great list to help you achieve your goals in January 2013 around the Philadelphia region.

I'm sure this list will continue to grow in the coming days/weeks as everyone stocks up on the events calendar in the wake of the holidays. In the meantime, this should give you a great start. Be safe and enjoy wherever your beer travels find you this January.

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