Boxwood Tap & Grill, The Common Table, SER Steak + Spirits

Beer dinners, a pair of unique small-scale festivals and an inaugural tour highlight this week's events in the North Texas craft beer community.

On the culinary front, Deep Ellum will be the featured brewery on Tuesday night for a four-course beer and food pairing at the Boxwood Tap & Grill. Two nights later, Mike Modano and KVIL's Tony Zazza will host a dinner at SĒR Steak + Spirits with brews from Rabbit Hole. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Mike Modano Foundation and the Zazza Community Foundation.

Come the weekend, Saturday options include the 4th Annual Starkbierfest at the Common Table, where you'll enjoy all things German, as well as the Cranks & Craft Beer Festival going on at Pour House Fort Worth.

Also happening on Saturday is the first ever public tour at the Grapevine Craft Brewery in Farmers Branch. Note that for this event (and future tours as well), tickets must be purchased in advance by way of TicketLeap.
