Colorado Beer News 081312

Colorado Beer NewsToday is International Lefthanders Day. This day was meant to promote awareness of the inconveniences facing left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world. Try doing something left-handed today - like eating, throwing, writing or shaking hands. If you happen to be left-handed already - celebrate and proudly proclaim your left-handedness. In honor of today, this blog update is being typed entirely left-handed. Here's what's happening around the Colorado beerosphere today Monday, August 13th, 2012.
