Weekly Beer Calendar Update: August 26th-August 31st

Wow! I know as we approach Labor Day, the beer events are gonna thin a bit. But, wow! Really? Am I missing something around here? Of course, that's not to say there won't be any good beer to be found on area lists at any given time on any given day. Just not many "scheduled events." Please people, remain strong and we can all get through this dry spell together and in one piece! (Since I wrote these first couple of paragraphs, there have been a few more announcements trickling in to the events desk here at TBL HQ. So, things aren't looking as bleak as originally thought ;-) Check out the entire August 2010 calendar over here. If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
