You know her, your love her and this week she's back in her sauciest form yet. Bourbon Barrel Temptress makes her 2013 debut this weekend from 12-3 p.m., during Lakewood's regular Saturday tour. The first 200 people will get a new commemorative glass, and early birds will have a chance to sample this year's version on nitro (only one nitro keg will be tapped during the tour).

Also happening on Saturday, World of Beer SMU celebrates its first anniversary with special tappings from Founders, Ballast Point and Southern Tier. Or, if you find yourself down around Uptown, check out the Second Annual Reindeer Games, a charity event put on by Crawl for Kids which benefits local children's charities.

Items worth a look leading up to the weekend include Dogfish Head Brewsday Tuesday at the Common Table, and Wednesday happenings like the Saint Arnold Bishop's Barrel Flight and Glass Night at the Addison Flying Saucer, or the Community/Dallas Winter Warmer Night occurring at Craft and Growler. The latter affords you an opportunity to pick up discount tickets to the December 14 beer festival, which will be the last event of its kind this year.
