Beer Calendar: What To Do in February 2015

Love is in the air this second month of 2015. February begins with a big football game, groundhog day, hits the middle of the month with the firkinteenth and Valentine's Day, and rounds out the month with a few festivals.

Not too shabby for a 28-day month.

While not really qualifying as an event, I still feel inclined to share with you that I'll be helping make a beer in Belgium the first week of the month. John Stemler from Free Will and I will be joining a Philly Beer Week contingent as part of the PBW '15 collaboration brewing trip. My part, you may recall, is the result of winning the annual raffle back in December. Read about it over here at Monk's Cafe's website and follow along on Philly Beer Week's website

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