Beer Event Calendar: What To Do in October 2016

The beer-drinking season - what a beautiful time of year. All sorts of varied reasons and opportunities to drink our favorite beverage.

A lot of local brewers are off to Denver next week for the annual Great American Beer Festival. Back home, there'll be plenty to do including maybe some pop-up parties to celebrate their medal-winning brews.

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