All this activity has me worn out so check out FatCat KC and Show Me Beer for more events or more details about these events.
But, if you really want to take Craft Beer Week to heart, take out a co-worker who doesn't drink what you drink and buy them a Boulevard or a Tallgrass or a Free State or a Schlafly, anything and share with them what you like about beer. Maybe it will make them think twice next time they order a beer, maybe it won't, but I'll bet the beer will do the talking for you.
