Weekly Beer Calendar Update: July 2 - July 8

Here we go, headfirst into the second half of the year. More than a brewer's dozen of beer events around the region to help you enjoy your favorite beverage during the hazy, crazy days of summer.

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.

Tonight, I will be at Yards from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Plenty of beers, food, and my new book to check out. Stop by and get a head start on the holiday weekend...and those growlers filled for the picnics and fireworks.

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 As always, they host an impressive listing of beer event draft lists to help better inform your beer event planning.
