I'm in the Albany/Corvallis area (visiting in-laws and working remote) through the week after Thanksgiving. I've been out here enough over the past several years to have both a reasonable handle on the beer scene and an awareness of the well-worn paths in my wanderings. In Portland, I go to Great Notion; on the coast, I go to de Garde; in Eugene or Bend, I go...places (I haven't been to either often enough to develop a pattern). I'll be out here long enough that I'll have the time to try new things - or get reacquainted with some old standbys that may have fallen off my radar. So...given all that, what places would be good to visit this month? Which breweries are killing it at the moment? Are there any upcoming releases I should be aware of?
