Colorado Beer News 081313

Colorado Beer NewsToday is International Left Hander's Day. It's a day to celebrate all those who use their left hand as their primary writing hand. While many of us are ambidextrous, only a small percentage of the population use their left hand predominantly. Cheers to the lefties! Colorado even has a brewery named after the Left Hand! Here's what's happening around the Colorado beerosphere today Tuesday, August 13th, 2013. If you aren't reading this article on FermentedlyChallenged.com, you don't know what you're missing.
