Wow, Saturday and Sunday look to be days that stretch brewers and reps thinly across the region. Lots of great stuff out there to soak up — get to it!
Thanks again for your continued support in my book sales/events efforts. It's been wonderful to see and hear from so many of you along the way at events and online as you've scooped up the book for yourself and many of you that have made multiple purchases for friends and family. Here's a link to the full list of future and past events where you can catch me selling Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic.
