Beer Calendar: What To Do in September 2016

Back to school, back to beer. Plenty to keep you interested around these parts as summer draws to end and we all get back to our "regular schedules".

As for my so-called regular schedule, I've got my own event on the calendar for tomorrow, September 1, in Elkins Park. Check it out below and then come check me and the bookstore out. Plus it doubles as a free beer tasting as well. I'll be bringing some and you're invited to as well.

If you somehow have still not seen the book, check it out over at my publisher's site. Or to buy, send a note to me, ping Amazon.com, or drop by your local bookstore such as Barnes & Noble or Open Book Bookstore!

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