Heads up, Durham beer fans:
Mirella Amato, Canada's first Master Cicerone, is coming to our neck of the 'burbs this Thursday, Aug. 28, from 5 to 7 p.m., to talk beer and sign copies of her book, Beerology. Buying your ticket in advance will also get you a bottle of 5 Paddles Rum-Oak-Soaked Belgian Midnight Paddler (the event takes place at 5 Paddles Brewing Co.).
Pretty damn cool event for a place that was a craft beer wasteland a year and a half ago. Look how far we've come! Let's show Mirella what we're made of.
See you Thursday.
