Beer Calendar: What To Do in September 2015

And, just like that, we're back to school. Time to lament where the summer went, how the kids got another year older, and how time just generally flies too quickly. Luckily you've got this here lil beer calendar to soothe your mental anguish.

Sales of my new book Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic is continue to hum along quite nicely. You'll see below how I'm participating in the annual Beer Yard, Tröegs, and Teresa's Next Door fundraiser for the DelCo SPCA on September 5. Stop by and enjoy some food, beer, charity, and if you don't take home a dog or cat, at least you might buy one of my books. Perfect for back-to-school learning!

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, have begun carrying the book so look for it at your local Barnes & Noble, for example.

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