Weekly Beer Calendar Update: November 11th-November 17th

Why does the size of this list more resemble a monthly calendar of beer events? Come to think of it, it's probably larger than some states monthly complement of beer events. And, did someone go and proclaim 11/13 a beer holiday? At least six events are popping up on this calendar (sixteen, if you count every CBX stop), and I'm getting a feeling I'm probably missing one or two. 11/11 doesn't look too shabby of a day to go out and find a beer either. Many questions that can only be answered by getting out there and doing something. Go forth! Check out the entire November 2010 calendar over here. If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, let me know.
