Craft beer calendar: Resolve to try one of these weekend tappings

After pulling out of some states in 2011 in order to concentrate on others, Longmont's Oskar Blues has recently begun expanding aggressively again. This week, the brewery, which has a second production brewery in North Carolina, said it plans to launch beer sales in Idaho, Minnesota, Kansas, Nevada and Delaware, along with increased distribution in southern Alabama. Last year, the brewery added Michigan and Indiana, while upping its presence in California, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky.
