Upcoming Beer Tasting Events

Here's a summary of some upcoming local tasting opportunities. Please support the generous folks who open beers for these events. I was recently told by one store owner that beer people often refuse to try out new beers at tastings and that wine shoppers tend to be more open to trying something new. Why is that?
