Beer Calendar: What To Do in February 2012

January. Now that wasn't so difficult was it? Well, I suppose a couple of those weekends were jammed up with some mighty fine beer events that you had difficulty deciding between.

But, now comes February. It's a Leap Year, so the bar and brewery owners get an extra day this year to get you out with your party hats. Plus, that annual day of lovey-dovey-ness, you know what that means.

And, San Francisco Beer Week on the other coast. And, you know what that means. If you or someone you know happens to be out there, encourage them to check the Beer Run that I'm co-sponsoring/organizing.

If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
