Happy Friday! Hope everyone is getting their holiday shopping done, cause I'm not. There's been so many good beer events in the last few weeks that I haven't been able to get anything done. The calendar is looking a little sparse this week so maybe I'll get something done this weekend. If that happens, I'll be sure to celebrate with a beer! What are your plans for the weekend?
If there is something coming up that is not listed, we would love to hear about it. News, reviews, info, etc., to share for our next Random Beer Roundup can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
