Beer Calendar: What To Do in February 2016

So here we are; one-twelfth of the way through 2016. From the Super Bowl to Love Day to Leap Year, February has a lot going on it, especially for its 29 days. The beer event calendar takes full advantage of it.

While I'm on somewhat of a book signing event hiatus, I'll still get my plug in here for you to check it out. If you somehow have still not seen the book, check it out over at my publisher's site. Or to buy, send a note to me, ping Amazon.com, or drop by your local bookstore such as Barnes & Noble.

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