Beer Event Calendar: What To Do in April 2017

March. April. Going out, coming in. Lion. Lamb. I'm not quite sure. What does seem clear is that in and around Philly, March is going out with a beer and April is coming in with both barrels loaded. All sorts of events to tickle your beer fancy. Spring is in the air, enjoy those beers.

Might be worth mentioning a very nice article written by Don Botch in the Reading Eagle earlier this month. Here's a link if you've not seen it. Always gratifying when there's an unsolicited recognition of my work through the years and the book, which by the way saw a nice little uptick in sales as a result. Plus, at least one new signing event coming in May. More about that later.

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.

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