Beer Calendar: What To Do in April 2009

So, if March goes out like a lamb...(ha! really? with Calagione doing a simul-cask?)...then how does April come in? It can shower all it wants. Baseball is back and more great beer events continue to roll in. Philly is done with its imperial-sized Beer Week for 2009 and Washington, D.C. is gearing up for the return of Savor later in May. Nationwide, the movie Beer Wars debuts on April 16th with an airing of the movie at local theaters and a discussion led by Ben Stein. Across PA, NJ, and DE, you'll be able to find participating theaters in Bensalem, King Of Prussia, Philadelphia, Plymouth Meeting, Voorhees, Warrington, and Wilmington. Check out the official site for all the details and to pre-order tickets. Let's see what April has to offer. If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
