Beer Calendar: What To Do in January 2010

2010, Ach weh! Closing in on 20 years of drinking the good stuff and 5 years writing about it am I. And, with that, the brewers, distributors, and publicans who make it all possible continue to march on with a January beer events calendar as full as it has ever been. With many still catching up here in the middle holiday madness, this calendar will continue to grow over the coming weeks. Check back often to make sure you stay up-to-date with all of the best beer events. And, don't forget the roughly 175 establishments and their New Year's Eve plans that I've listed over here.

Thanks Shawn, I can't believe that I didn't check my "personal" calendar where I already had put this event a couple of weeks back.

Iron Hill hasn't listed the event, but I found out last night that this is being moved back to 2/6.
