Weekend Beer Festival Forecast for April 25 to 28, 2013
Will winter end this spring? According to the forecasts, yes, but we know the reliability of those weather wizards. Still, if things go as expected, this long, long winter that gripped much of this country will end and spring beer festivals will now have spring-like weather to go with them.
Tip of the week: Many beer festivals donate some portion of their proceeds to local or national charities. If those charities have a booth where you can donate, be a sport and throw a few bucks into the bucket to help make this a better world.
The Weekend Beer Festival Forecast publishes each Wednesday to alert beer road trippers about beer festivals and other brew-related events during the upcoming weekend.
