A full calendar follows below with at least one beer-y thing to do each of the next seven days. And nicely spread across the region to boot. No excuses; get out there and drink it up!
Also, please keep my book events in mind where I'm talking beer, selling/signing books, and in some cases tasting beer with anyone who shows up. The events thus far have been successful and I'm looking forward to keeping it going. 4 days of Pittsburgh-region events are coming up in a couple of weeks for any of you out that way.
Here's a link to the full list of future and past events where you can catch me selling Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic.
As you review beer events, don't forget PhillyTapFinder.com. As always, they host an impressive listing of beer event draft lists to help better inform your beer event planning.
