This Week in Beer: May 1 – 7, 2017

This week (and month), we launch our new events calendar. You can easily find it by clicking the Events link above or by going to for the May 2017 events. We will still doing our This Week in Beer post each Monday, but any events that we learn of after Monday mornings will be just added to the Events calendar.
