  1. Thank you, Catherine! This is a great service and I appreciate it. I have downloaded the calendar to a “Brewology Layer” on my Google calendar as you suggested, and I love it. You might want to add an event for Take Dad Out for a Beer Day (Father’s Day). The only other date I would like to see added is the date in 2014 for the Grand Opening of Portner’s Brewhouse and Craft Beer Test Kitchen! Cheers!
