Weekly Beer Calendar Update: February 11 - February 17


Ah, it's the week of love. However you express your love around Valentine's Day, plenty of opportunity to bring some beer front and center. Enjoy!

While I don't envision any book events for at least the next month, I'll continue to stick a quick plug here pointing you to: a) my publisher; b) Amazon.com; c) BarnesAndNoble.com. As always, I thank you for your continued support.

As you review beer events, don't forget PhillyTapFinder.com. They host an impressive listing of beer event draft lists to help better inform your beer event planning.
