Beer Calendar: What To Do in November 2012

Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy may stop you from seeing this when it first goes live on Tuesday morning, but it hasn't stopped your favorite breweries and bars from planning another month of events to keep you happy and hydrated throughout.

Keep an eye open for the handful of events that are rescheduled in November from late October due to "Sandy".

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