Beer Dinner at Iron Hill, Kennett Square festival, and much, much more

It's not only Oktoberfest season, but this second half of September is really heating up with all sorts of beer events ranging from free tastings to higher-priced dinners. Check out the calendar over here for a (not quite) complete listing for the Philadelphia region and sometimes beyond. In the meantime, here's a bit more information for this coming Saturday's (9/20) Beer Dinner at Iron Hill in West Chester, PA. Contact the brewery for reservations. Only a few seats remain. Ah, and an announcement from Kennett Square says that less than 200 tickets remain for their festival on 10/4 (good buddy). The connoisseur tasting has been sold out for a while, but there'll still be plenty of tasty treats at the general session, so get the tickets while you can. Always a good bet as one of the region's better fall festivals.
