Mid-April Hop Tips

New breweries, new beers and new friends make a nice trifecta. Do your best to get out to an event and find some new friends or take some "old" friends or family with you. As always let me know about your favorite festivals and events.

Did I miss some great events in your area? If so, hit reply and let me know about them.


™ Enjoy the journey; Enjoy Good Beer, Steve Deason
