On tap: DFW craft beer events, week of December 23

See also

Leave it to Christmas to finally slow things down event wise here in the Metroplex. The holiday falls on a Wednesday this year, which is typically one of the busiest craft beer nights of the week. Since most establishments will likely be closed, only verifiable events have been included for that day's listings. One of which, as you'll see, is the release of Dogfish Head 90 and 120 Minute IPA, marking the end of the Dogfish Days of December at the Addison Flying Saucer.

The marquee event this week is the sold-out 2 Years 10 Beers celebration going on Saturday at the Peticolas Brewing Company. It's the brewery's second anniversary, and they'll be celebrating by tapping every beer they've ever produced. There will also be a brewery exclusive offered, an as-yet-to-be revealed brew (it's an imperial stout) with an ABV of 11%.

Also happening Saturday is the Brews Travelers 365 Launch Party at the Common Table (TCT). Local event regulars Michael Roberts and Brandon Wurtz are setting off on a year-long journey with the goal of visiting 365 breweries in 365 days, and TCT will have a special brew on tap to mark the occasion. Check out the Brews Travelers website for more details on their plans.
