Weekly Beer Event Calendar Update: September 22 - September 30

More events, you ask? Yup, another 30 or so here in the next nine days to close out September. Look at this list and you'll understand why, if pressed, I'd say the fall is my favorite beer-drinking season of the year. Oktoberfest and "fall harvest" celebrations. New releases. Anniversary parties. Big festivals. Small festivals. Rare beer. Easy-to-find beer. Free beer. Expensive beer. Fun 'n' games, live music, and much more. We've got it all here; a little something for every taste beer. Enjoy!
