Beer Calendar: What To Do in November 2013

Fall is squarely upon, a nip is in the air, and I trust a few are in your glass as well. If not, what are you waiting for? November offers plenty of chances around the Philadelphia region to drink up and stay warm.

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