Craft beer calendar: two brewery openings, a festival and a host of tappings

New Belgium Brewing is rolling out its new look on a wide scale this month, after having introduced bits and pieces of it last year. The "portfolio-wide packaging refresh...reimagines New Belgium's iconic and playful watercolor imagery from the past 22 years through a modern lens," the Fort Collins company says. The new artwork, by Leah Giberson of San Francisco's Hatch Design, replaces the easily recognizable work of Ann Fitch, who is the neighbor of New Belgium co-founder Kim Jordan.
