Foodie news roundup for Dec. 18.
Today, Dec. 21, from 6 to 9 p.m., the “Beerdoir 2018” calendars will be revealed and available for purchase at The Shop Beer Co. in Tempe. The funds from sales will support the Theresa Sorrels Legacy Foundation to raise money for people in the beer community facing medical emergencies.
