A cool couple of dozen beer events (nearly forty if you add in all the individual events of the Craft Beer Express on Saturday) to choose from over the next seven days. Good luck and happy imbibing; I know you have it in you.
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. 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.
