These days, a new week almost always means new beers, and this week is no exception. In terms of debuts, Cedar Creek will be rolling out Spinning Mule, their new coffee chocolate porter, all week long at Brewery Night events being hosted by area Ginger Man locations. As for old favorites, a check of the listings will show ample opportunities to get a taste of this year's batch of Rahr Summertime Wheat.

Dinner options are something else in abundance on the schedule, with various beer and food pairings featuring Deschutes, Four Corners, Full Sail, Harpoon and Rahr. Then again, nothing says beer and food like Deep Ellum's 4th Annual Brew-B-Q, happening Sunday at the brewery. Tickets for the latter are available in advance at a cost of $30 (plus fees).

Also worth a look is a special Memorial Day Tour happening on Saturday at Rabbit Hole. In addition to serving up their new seasonal, Wanderlust, the brewery has invited the guys from Independent Ale Works and the soon-to-be Shannon Brewing Company to join the fun and provide samples to attendees. Tickets are $15 (plus fees).
