Let's finish off June with a healthy dose of interesting-looking beer events. There are festivals in the streets, on a ship, and even in the buff. Check 'em out and stay cool.
Also, please keep my book events in mind where I'm talking beer, selling/signing books, and in some cases tasting beer with anyone who shows up. The events thus far have been 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 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.
