Weekly Beer Calendar Update: April 4 - April 10

We've got some anniversary parties over here, some free tastings over there. How about some barrels? Some Belgians? And a bunch of charitable ways to drink your beer? The Phillies kick off this week at home and Iron Hill has noticed. You want some festival-style events, a Fergie roast, and even a renovation completion party thrown in for good measure?

Can't use snow anymore as an excuse not to get out there and enjoy what your favorite beer boys and girls have created for you. Now get to it. (Just watch, now it will snow.)

Check out the entire April 2013 calendar over here. If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, don't hesitate to let me know.
