North Texas craft beer events, week of June 30

Examiner picks of the week
Examiner picks of the week
Holy Grail Pub, Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Cedar Creek Brewery

With the July 4th holiday weekend approaching, it should come as no surprise that many places are doing a little something extra to commemorate the occasion.

In Seven Points, American's birthday will be coinciding with Cedar Creek's 2nd Anniversary Bash. The event, going on from noon to 11 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday, will feature food, live music and the return of the brewery's seasonal witbier, Repartee.

Multi-day events will also be happening at two area establishments to the north. The Flying Saucer in Addison will be throwing a Founders Independence Party on Thursday and Friday, with special tappings and a chance to pick up an All Day IPA can glass. At the Holy Grail Pub in Plano, it's time once again for Smoke Out at the Grail, which runs Friday through Sunday. One of the beers on the menu for that event will be Saint Arnold's 20th Anniversary Ale.

Surveying local breweries, Cobra Brewing in Lewisville will be holding their Red, White and Brew event during the brewery's regular hours on Saturday. Then from 6-10 p.m. it's Comedy Night, which goes on as a way to introduce patrons to what will be Cobra's new summer hours in effect until October. Over at Rabbit Hole in Justin, they'll be celebrating with special additions to their regular tour lineup, like a special test batch called Nada y Mucho (a honey blond ale), randallized brews and an appearance by former Dallas Star Craig Ludwig.

Lastly, take note of new regularly scheduled event going on at Luck. They're calling it Live Music Tuesdays and this week they'll be incorporating a special tapping of Fracker Barrel One from Revolver.
