Colorado celebrates 303 Day today! The area code and calendar date line up once a year. It's a day to celebrate everything great you love about Colorado - including all that great craft beer. The snow may be falling, but don't let that stop you (just be careful out there). Here's what's tappening in Colorado beer today.

What will March bring? To the brewery taps that is. Expect to see a lot of Irish-themed beers pouring this month in Colorado. It's also going to be one of the snowiest months of the year - so keep warm with a pint of your favorite winter warmer. Keep reading Fermentedly Challenged for upcoming St. Patrick's Day events and tappings.

Rest in Peace Leonard Nimoy. Today's post is dedicated to the memory of one of our favorite actors who passed away today. Let us all lift a glass of our favorite craft beer and toast to his memory. Live Long and Prosper! And thanks for all the great memories too. He will be missed. Here's what's happening around the Colorado craft beer scene today Friday, February 27th, 2015.

A Snowy Hump Day for the last Wednesday in February! Do your best to stay warm. One place you'll always stay warm at is at your favorite local Colorado craft brewery taproom. Lots of specials on today. Pick a spot and hunker down for a while.

Don't let today's great weather fool you - the snow is coming! Better stock up on beer while you're out today. Fermentedly Challenged has some tips on what you'll need to know and who's got some specials happening. Plus, there are some events coming up you'll want to know about too. Also - Happy Chinese New Year - Year of the Goat/Ram/Sheep.

How would you like to have a selection of 40 taps of beer, wine and cider and be able to pour it your self for as many ounces as you wish? A new business headed to Denver will soon let you do just that - First Draft.

February 2015 was Stout Month for many Colorado breweries as big, bold, dark brews tended to dominate the brewing landscape here in the state. February also saw record heat as well as record snow. It made for some rare February patio drinking days. Luckily, there was a bounty of new beer releases in the state. Something for just about every taste. The following list is a recap of just some of the known craft beers that were released during the last month in Colorado. How many of these beers did you try? Here's what was new for the month of February 2015 in Colorado.

Tis the season for Winter seasonal beers. But Spring beers are already making their debut. Enjoy this cross-over period between the cold, the dark and the lighter Spring brews. You're almost to the weekend! If you just can't wait till then - you should read today's Colorado Beer News to see what's new and tapping around the Front Range.

Enjoy this mini-thaw while you can because another round of snow comes in tomorrow. Better stock up on beer to get you through the cold nights ahead. Several Colorado breweries have new tappings and some fun events coming up.

Mardi Gras over already? If you missed it (and didn't give up beer for Lent) then you're in luck because there's always plenty of great beers and upcoming beer events here in Colorado. There's even an Ash Wednesday special going on. Check out all the latest craft beer news from social media, newsletters, press releases and more.

This is the weekend for love - love of good craft beer (oh and your significant other as well). Almost every brewery has either a Valentine's Day beer tapping or a special event going on just for the occasion. Where will you bring your Valentine to for a beer? Need ideas? Read on!
