Beer calendar: Smoked beers, books and barleywine are on tap

Governor John Hickenlooper, co-founder of the Wynkoop Brewing Company, signed legislation this week that will continue to fund the Rural Economic Development Initiative, a program that "encourages local governments and businesses to join forces to develop community infrastructure and private facility projects and job training grants," according to the state. One of those projects: Eddyline Brewing in Buena Vista, which will receive a $125,000 grant toward a $1.4 million expansion and the creation of eighteen new jobs.
