Weekly Beer Calendar Update: December 25 - January 1

I'm going to go ahead and get this out to you a bit earlier than the typical Thursday morning release, since I feel you may have other things on your mind Christmas morning. This weekly edition laps over into New Year's Day with some great options for starting off the new year on the right foot and with the right beer. Here's wishing you, your family, and your friends a peaceful and relaxing Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, and New Year's celebration with a great beer in hand.

As you review beer events, don't forget PhillyTapFinder.com. They continue to host an impressive listing of beer event draft lists to help better inform your beer event planning.
