Colorado Beer News 040913

Colorado Beer NewsToday is Name Yourself Day. We were given a name at birth. But today is the one day where you can give yourself a unique name for just one day a year. Just change your first, middle, or last name and then let people know about it. Who knows, if you like it well enough you can work to change it permanently! It's also Middle Name Pride Day. Show off the hidden part of your name. It's a slow brew news day due to the storm. Here's what's happening around the Colorado beerosphere today Tuesday, April 9th, 2013.
