Weekly Beer Calendar Update: April 7 - April 13

These beers ain't gonna drink themselves! Here is a list of well over 40 events in the next seven days where we can help with this.

I've finally got my third upcoming book event listing to share with you and it's with the Fishtown Beer Runners. On Thursday, April 14, I'll be joining them at their post-run Toast To The Professor at The Druid's Keep, which is featured in my Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic. I think the Druid's Keep has been a Philly treasure for quite some time, and a somewhat well-guarded treasure as well and am so happy to be doing an event there. This FBR/Book event joins the Boots, Brews, & BBQ event that I'm part of on April 30 in Wayne, NJ and the Meet The Author at Books-A-Million in the Exton Square Mall on June 14.

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.
