Beer Calendar: What To Do in August 2016



How better to get my mojo flowing here again at The Brew Lounge than with the work most in demand - the monthly and weekly beer calendar of events in and around Philadelphia. For the first time since I've been doing this (recall that these calendars have been going strong since 2006), I'm expanding the monthly calendar to include some select events occurring out past the current month.

Lots to do and my aim has always been to keep you as informed as possible in your busy lives with scattered information coming at you from all directions. Hope you've all been well this summer and drinking great beers. Cheers!

As always, if I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
