It would seem that this is a great week to get out and enjoy locally-made beer, as numerous events with North Texas breweries are on the bill.

Starting on Tuesday, the first of at least five separate pint nights featuring Rahr & Sons Oktoberfest will be happening, with each offering up new logo glassware in the shape of a barrel. Check the schedule below for events at Londoner Frisco, WBC Bottle Shop and Flying Saucer Addison, as well as at the Fort Worth and Southlake locations of the Ginger Man.

Also going on at the WBC Bottle Shop is a new series of classes in that establishment's Beer College series. All through September, representatives from local breweries will be heading up the affair, beginning on Tuesday with a speaker from Four Corners.

Looking towards the latter part of the week, Thursday has the launch party for Lakewood's French Quarter Temptress at the Common Table, while Friday features a special beer and food pairing with Revolver at Goodfriend. Also on Friday, Cedar Creek will be a part of a pint night at Whole Foods Lakewood, something they'll repeat the very next night at Whole Foods Addison.

Finally, those behind the Untapped Festival are putting on a special event on Saturday. Unyapped, as it's being called, is a fundraiser celebrating the anniversary of Dallas Pets Alive, an organization focused on supporting animal rescue. Support a great cause while enjoying live music, catered food and beer from Goose Island (with purchase of Beer Package or VIP tickets).
