Beer Event Calendar: What To Do in November 2016

2016 is rapidly coming to a close and the beer events calendar is as full as ever. Trust you can find something interesting to do with your beer buddies on this ever-diverse list of events from free tastings to grand festivals and dinners. Even free beer on election day—well-deserved no doubt!

And it's that special gift-giving time of year again, so I'm inclined to remind you again of my book, Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic. To buy, send a note to me for personal signing and delivery, ping Amazon.com, or drop by your local bookstore such as Barnes & Noble.

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


$20 and under, down to and including FREE...Pay As You Go (PAYG) also included here
