Weekly Beer Calendar Update: November 25 - November 30

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.
