Coming at you a day earlier than the weekly calendar normally comes out. Figuring you might be pre-occupied with turkey, parades, football, and/or nursing hangovers tomorrow. So here is the remainder of the month in beer events, beginning with today's.
Also, please keep my book events in mind where I'm talking beer, selling/signing books, and in some cases tasting beer with anyone who shows up. The events thus far have been successful and I'm looking forward to keeping it going. Here's a link to the full list of future and past events where you can catch me selling Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic. Plenty of opportunities to find me in PA, NJ, DE, and MD before Christmas.
As you review beer events, don't forget PhillyTapFinder.com. As always, they host an impressive listing of beer event draft lists to help better inform your beer event planning.
