Beer Calendar: What To Do in July 2013

You should probably excuse Philadelphia and its countryside if it needs a breather after one of the busiest June's on record. After ten days of Philly Beer Week and all that it entails (alright now, don't get picky on me; I realize PBW '13 only had nine days in the month of June!) and the month closing out with nearly 4,000 people related to the National Homebrewers Conference roaming around town in search of a great beer experience in our fair town, we could use some relatively quiet time to sit around the bar and chat about how good things really are in our neck of the woods.

Soldier on we must and we do and it is in that spirit I provide to you the July calendar of beer events in and around Philly. Let's meet up soon for that quiet beer and conversation at our favorite watering hole.

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