As you can see, there was a major oversight on my part not getting this out last week on schedule while I was on the other side of the country. Since there are still some events worth shouting about in the next couple of days, here they are for your reading and drinking pleasure. I'm nothing if not thorough in rectifying my shortcomings.
Plus, a look at what you may have missed and where there may still be leftovers from the past few days. I'll do better with this week's calendar on Thursday, as per usual schedule.
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.
