Weekly Beer Calendar Update: September 24 - September 30

In the midst of Oktoberfest and brewers heading off to Denver for GABF, there are plenty of events to go around here at the beginning of the autumn season. Best wishes (and party on) to all breweries looking to bring home some heavy medals from Denver.

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. Baltimore Beer Week is fast approaching (10/9-10/18) and I'll be there for at least a handful of events. Really looking forward to participating in their long-robust beer scene.

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.
