Weekly Beer Calendar Update: March 12 - March 18

This may look like a mere meager list compared to last week. Keep in mind, though, I listed the Craft Beer Express only once and not twelve times for each event at each location. Still plenty of work to be done. Keep it going.

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

Click through here for a look at the full monthly calendar of beer events around the Philadelphia region.
