Colorado Beer News 071414

Colorado Beer NewsToday is International Nude Day. This so-called holiday was started in New Zealand and is a day to celebrate your skin, being in it and proudly showing it off - no matter what you look like. Granted, the folks in New Zealand may have a place where being nude in public is OK, but here in the states, you'd better use discretion if you feel like celebrating this holiday. Best to stock up on beer first, take it home and then have your own private celebration of International Nude Day. Here's what's happening around the Colorado beerosphere today Monday, July 14th, 2014. If you aren't reading this article on, you don't know what you're missing.
