Not too shabby for the last five days of August, eh?
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. Labor Day weekend will find me at The Beer Yard in Wayne, Pa. with a table full of books along side of some great beers from Troegs and foods on the grill all in their annual effort to raise money for the Delaware County SPCA.
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.
