Beer Calendar: What To Do in July 2015

Must be hitting some sort of record beer event slump here in the Philly area. Don't believe I've ever started a month with a calendar that is this small. Course, we've been spoiled around these parts for quite a while. Plus, I'm sure that as the month progresses, more will become known to me.

In the meantime, my new book Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic is hitting its stride quite nicely. My own events calendar around this will be ramping up again here in July and August and farther abroad in August, September, and October. Not long after that, I'll be reminding you that it would make a swell Christmas and Hanukkah gift!

For now, head on over to the publisher's website where you can find a series of links to online sites, such as Amazon, where you can find the book for sale. Brick-and-mortar stores, too, will be carrying the book.

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