Beer Event Calendar: Philadelphia & beyond: What To Do in January 2019

Am I late with this January calendar of beer events? Well, maybe just a bit, eh? You see, I've been raising this puppy and the dog ate my beer calendar! Since you didn't come here for excuses or dog stories (though, you can bet you'll see this pup featured at future outdoor beer events), let's get to what's remaining in January. If you haven't been out since the turn of the calendar, you haven't missed too much yet. And the best is still to come, headed up by a bunch of Nugget Nectar hitting the taps and shelves.

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

$20 and under, down to and including FREE...Pay As You Go (PAYG) also included here
