1. Learn about Edgewater Brewery’s Western Colorado Craft Beer Celebration on Saturday, March 28.

Breweries expected to attend include Colorado Boy (Ridgway), Copper Club Brewing Company (Fruita), Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company, Ouray Brewing, Ourayle House, Palisade Brewing, Revolution Brewing (Paonia), Rockslide Brewery (Grand Junction), Suds Brothers Brewery (Fruita), Telluride Brewing and Two Rascals Brewing (Montrose).

2. Learn about Colorado’s hand-sewn Bleeding Heart Apparel.

According to Phil Lindeman: “Bleeding Heart was born soon after [Jared] Markowitz ditched that Volcom hoodie for the wild, uncharted waters of custom manufacturing. His parents bought him a $150 sewing machine — “It seemed like such a major investment back then,” he says — and he set to work learning the ins and outs of clothing design the modern way: by watching YouTube videos.”

3. Learn about a push in Glenwood Springs to let recreational stories operate later in the evening.

“While the hours for medical sales are governed by state statute, municipalities have the flexibility to establish their own hours of operation until as late as midnight for recreational sales, which became legal in Colorado last year,” John Stroud reported.

4. Learn about dying eggs for Easter and use an easy recipe.

According to The Kitchen Diva: “The use of natural food dyes to color eggs became popular during medieval times. English kings distributed hundreds of decorated, gold-leaf eggs during Easter. Russian Czar Alexander III transformed this holiday custom to high-art when he commissioned the famous Faberge eggs as a gift for his wife, the Empress Maria Alexandrovna, from goldsmith Peter Carl Faberge.”

5. Learn about Gypsum’s biomass power plant and why it’s still offline.

“A plant that generates electricity by burning beetle-killed wood had only been operating for a few months when a December fire badly damaged the facility’s conveyor system,” Scott Miller reported. “The plant has been closed since, and will probably remain closed until summer.”
