And just like that, the conversation turns from too-soon pumpkin beers to too-soon winter beers. Seems this time of year we all have something to say about how fast time is flying.

Plenty more beer events of every shape, size, and flavor as the year nears its end. Wilmington gives us one more Beer Week before the winter sets in. As the weather turns cooler, more beer pairing dinners pop on to the calendar and provide warm settings in which to enjoy hearty meals and cool beverages.

A little something for everyone. Enjoy!

Cheers,

Bryan Kolesar
