Colorado Beer News 101011

Colorado Beer NewsToday is National Kick Butt Day - On this day we commit to kicking ourselves in the butt to take action on goals we’ve set and not achieved, actions we’ve committed to and not taken, promises we’ve made and not kept, excuses we’ve created that have us stalled and difficulties we’ve faced and not overcome. This is the day we get our butts in gear and move forward in our lives. And with that in mind, here's what's happening around the Colorado beerosphere today Monday, October 10th, 2011.
