North Texas craft beer events, week of June 23

Examiner picks of the week
Examiner picks of the week
Flying Saucer, Lakewood Brewing, Sevy's, Komali, Cook Hall

For the next five days it's Californication Week at the Flying Saucer in Addison. This celebration of California beer will feature daily bottle releases, special tappings and thematic Fire Sale beers. Then, to top it all off, the pub will host a Firestone Walker Beer Dinner on Thursday evening. The latter will include entree and dessert courses paired with rarities Parabola and Sucaba.

Of course, that's not the only beer dinner on the menu this week. Lakewood has scheduled a pair of midweek events that will feature the brewery's current seasonal, Zomer Pils, as well as their year-round offerings. The first of these happens tonight at Sevy's Grill in Dallas, while the second is a joint venture with the Dallas Opera happening at Komali on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, the Libertine's latest incarnation of their Vegan Beer Dinner is also slated for Wednesday, while Cook Hall's monthly feast with the fermented happens Friday, centered around the beers of Colorado's Odell Brewing Company.
