Beer Calendar: What To Do in November 2011

There'll be plenty to be thankful for in November 2011. Near the top should be the display of great beer put on by Philadelphia-area bars, brewers, and distributors.

If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.

Kicking things off here, though, I should first mention that on Tuesday, November 15, around the Philadelphia area at participating bars like, Monk's, Tria, Eulogy, and Teresa's Next Door will be participating in a noteworty event. Vanburg & Dewulf is celebrating its 30th Anniversary of importing great Belgian beers with an event called Coast-to-Coast Toast. Check out their website for all the details and if you like Belgian beer, you'll want to consider participating in the evening of great beer.
