As you get your post-Philly Beer Week legs under you, here are some suggested approaches. Also, please keep my book events in mind where I'll be talking beer, selling/signing books, and in some cases tasting beer with anyone who shows up. These events during Philly Beer Week (and Frederick Beer Week) were successful and I'm looking forward to keeping it going.
Here's a link to the full list of future and past events where you can catch me selling my just-released Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic.
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.
