Weekly Beer Calendar Update: March 17 - March 23

We've cleared the Ides of March and now are buckling down for a St. Patrick's Day celebration today and tonight. Thinking hanging with Mr. O'Reilly at Sly Fox could be in order. That and another almost three dozen events below for your perusal.

I've got some new book events coming up in the next couple of months. I'll share them with you soon. In the meantime, I'll continue to stick a quick plug here pointing you to: a) my publisher; b); c) As always, I thank you for your continued support.
