Beer Calendar: What To Do in August 2009

No real themes throughout the month of August here in the Philadelphia region. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Just enough to keep you going through the dog days of summer as you try to beat the heat and humidity. The calendar looks a bit top-heavy, though, in the beginning of the month so consider this a call out to all party planners for some events later in the month as well. 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 Philadelphia Mon. 7/27 - Great Lakes Welcoming Party @Memphis Taproom, Philadelphia, PA (5:00pm; PAYG) Mon. 7/27 - HopScotch! @The Khyber, Philadelphia, PA (5:00pm-9:00pm; PAYG) Tue. 7/28 - Victory 3-for-3 Day @Local 44, Philadelphia, PA (all day & night; PAYG) Wed. 7/29 - Clipper City Night @Devil's Den, Philadelphia, PA (7:00pm-9:00pm; PAYG) Sat. 8/1 - McGillin's 1860 IPA Debut Bus Trip @McGillin's Olde Ale House, Philadelphia, PA (10:00am; $20) Sun. 8/2 - Meet the Brewer, Steal the Pint Glass (East End Brewing) @Earth Bread + Brewery, Philadelphia, PA (PAYG) Sun. 8/2 - A Taste of Fest Fundraiser for Philadelphia Folk Festival @Yards Brewing Co., Philadelphia, PA (1:00pm-5:00pm; $10/$12) Tue. 8/4 - Party-of-a-Century-And-A-Half (and Book Signing with Joe Sixpack) @McGillin's Olde Ale House, Philadelphia, PA (6:00pm; PAYG) Thu. 8/6 - Brewer's Reserve Barrel Tappings (August's selection: Rattlesnake) @Triumph, Philadelphia, PA (6:00pm; PAYG) Tue. 8/11 - Book Signing with Lew Bryson @McGillin's Olde Ale House, Philadelphia, PA (6:00pm; PAYG) Sat. 8/15 - Pucker Up!!
