Beer Calendar: What To Do In February 2008

Many of you have expressed the importance and value of the calendars that I put up with event information each month. In an effort to get information to you sooner, in the future I will send the calendar of events closer to the middle of the preceding month, rather than in the last few days before month-end. So, let's give this a try. Of course, I'll keep it up-to-date with new events as I learn of them. Here are some selected upcoming February events that should keep the winter chill off. Can anyone say 'beer dinners'?
