Welcome to the Beer Festival Calendar, your online source for beer tasting events from around the world! Ludwig, the beer-drinking lion, and his staff, Maryanne Nasiatka and Paul Ruschmann, are glad you're here and hope you return often.

There are 31 festivals on the calendar for the coming weekend, and Ludwig (who's looking dapper in his Tigers baseball cap) has presented us with a lineup card with his top three picks: the
Great Arizona Beer Festival in Mesa; the Maltings Beer Festival in Newton Abbot, England; and the Missouri Beer Festival in Columbia.

Ludwig also reminds us that three Beer Weeks get underway on Saturday:
Annapolis Beer WeekMilwaukee Beer Week, and Reno Beer Week. All three close on the 25th.

In addition to the festival calendar, this site has a wealth of information about your--and our--favorite beverage, including:


* The "Beer Traveller Series," a collection of more than 60 articles about beer-drinking destinations. We just added several articles to the collection, including our pieces about Pennsylvania, great beer bars, San Francisco, and "old school beer and baseball tour," and our farewell column at
All About Beer.

* "Good Beer Books," Paul's reviews of books that belong on your reference shelf. He just added reviews of Douglas Wissing's "Indiana, One Pint at a Time" and Pete Brown's "Three Sheets to the Wind." Hope you enjoy them.

* And "Worts of Wisdom," observations about beer from now and the past.

What's that, Ludwig?

Our beer-drinking lion asks, "What, you haven't visited his blog,
Ludwig Roars? It offers a light-hearted look at beer-related news, places, and events from around the world. He also says that the writing is--pun definitely intended--rip-*roaring* good.

Finally, a shameless plug for ourselves:

If you're in, or near, Michigan, please consider buying our book,
Michigan Breweries. It's a comprehensive guidebook that we keep updated at one of our sister sites. Find out why Michigan is The Great Beer State. It makes a great present for the beer lover in your life!

Thanks for stopping by, and come back often!

Cheers!

Maryanne, Paul, and Ludwig
