This fall has seen a bevy of beer events, the next seven days is absolutely no exception with nearly 40 events hitting this weekly calendar. Goes well above that if you count the events of Wilmington Beer Week.
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.
