FOSSILS calendar of events for 2010 -- the 20th anniversary year.

As hard as it may be to believe, 2010 is the 20th anniversary of FOSSILS, the Fermenters of Special Southern Indiana Libations Society. The club, a homebrewing and beer appreciation society, has been a true bulwark in metro Louisville's movement for better beer. It was founded on September 30, 1990, in the room that eventually became Rich O's Public House. The story is far longer than I have time to tell today, but perhaps in the coming months, some of the long history of FOSSILS can be recounted here. In the interim, a brief club calendar for 2010 follows.
