Beer Event Calendar: Philadelphia & beyond: What To Do in November & December 2017

No hiding it; I'm just a little late, like 12 days late getting the monthly calendar to you. I feel like I've been not home more than I've been home lately. And, when I've been home, had so much more going on with projects, etc. than with beer.

That, hopefully, changes with this calendar. To catch up, and maybe give myself a bit of breathing room, this one will go out through the end of the year, to the extent that events are already scheduled. As you can see, plenty of event organizers are prepared. Are you?

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