Beer Calendar: What To Do in November 2014

Seems like it's right around this point each year where I comment something to the effect of how difficult it is to believe that the holidays are just around the corner. Beer festivals are ebbing, Beer Weeks have come and gone, and you're either cheering or bemoaning the segue from pumpkin beers to "Christmas beers".

By past monthly standards, this list feels just a bit light. As always, if I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
