Beer Calendar: What To Do in June 2013

And.......heeere weeeeee goooooo.

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

To all my good friends of Philadelphia (or anywhere in the region with a scheduled Philly Beer Week event May 31 through June 9, you won't be getting an individual listing here. I'm a diligent worker bee, but with over 150 venues hosting roughly 900 events during Philly Beer Week, even I know my limits and I had to draw the line somewhere. If you have events scheduled after PBW '13, feel free to toss them my way and I'll get them on here. Until then, I'll point the readers here over to for a full up-to-date calendar listing or my spreadsheet-ized version (with event info current as of May 26) for those that like that kind of thing.

Also, The Brew Lounge's weekly calendar updates will be going on a two-week hiatus in order to keep up with the PBW madness that will surely ensue and consume my time. Plus, I trust that most of you will be out and about with schedule in hand for PBW with no real need for a weekly calendar update until the next scheduled one on June 13.

In the meantime, read on for events beyond June 9 or those not listed with Philly Beer Week 2013. They're just as worthy and a part of the Philadelphia region of excellent beer.
