Beer Calendar: What To Do in August 2015

After an odd, apparent lull in the events calendar in July, we're back here in August with a tick back up into the slightly more normal range...at least in terms of shear number of events. Pumpkin beers are starting to trickle out, but while you'll see them on the store shelves, I don't believe we see any events yet being thrown around this theme. At least we have that going for us!

Sales of my new book Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic is continue to hum along quite nicely. My own events calendar is building out 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.
