If you missed the debut of Lakewood's new anniversary beer this past weekend, you'll have plenty of opportunities to check it out in the days ahead. Lion's Share II will be pouring at the Addison Flying Saucer on Monday, at Luck and World of Beer SMU on Tuesday, and at the Meddlesome Moth on Friday.

Perusing other offerings on the calendar, those on the north side of town will have a chance to be among the first to sample this year's batch of Oktoberfest from Franconia. It'll be among the pairings of a five-course beer dinner at Rockfish Seafood Grill in McKinney on Wednesday.

Once Thursday rolls around, celebrations will be focused on IPA Day. Described as a "movement created to unite the voices of craft beer enthusiasts," consumers enjoying the industry's most popular style are encouraged to share their experiences on social media while using the hashtag #IPAday. As part of the festivities, special tappings of various IPAs will be going on at area Flying Saucers, as well as at the Moth and other pubs and restaurants across the Metroplex.

Also happening at the Moth, the Design District locale will be hosting a Beer Camp Across America event on Saturday. A dozen brews will be tapped, each being a collaboration between California-based Sierra Nevada and one of America's most well-known craft breweries.
