The dog days are upon us. Hope you've found some tasty summertime beers to keep you cool. The events calendar has plenty to help the cause with everything from cruises to festivals and beer weeks to BBQs and live music events. Plenty of great excuses to get us out there this summer to enjoy beers from both old and new breweries alike.

Grab a cold one, an old one, or a bold one and enjoy the reading.

Cheers,

Bryan Kolesar
