Colorado Beer News 021712

Colorado Beer NewsToday is My Way Day. According to punchbowl.com: "Today is the official day to do everything your way. Sleep in late, eat whatever you want, and take as long as you like in the shower. The world revolves around you for the next twenty-four hours, so make sure that no one else influences your decisions. Do everything simply because you want to do it (but just make sure it's legal first)". Even Frank Sinatra did it "My Way". Here's what's happening around the Colorado beerosphere today Friday, February 17th, 2012.
