Beer Calendar: What To Do in April 2014

The Philly area beer calendar knows no seasons. However, it does feel like this month's calendar is turned up just a notch and that seems to fit nicely with our improving spring weather and matching attitudes. Am I wrong?

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