If tap takeovers are your thing, this week two area establishments are offering an opportunity to get your fill on the beers of a single brewery. Tuesday night, no few than fifteen brews from Dogfish Head will be pouring at the World of Beer in Arlington. Prefer to drink local? Then head over to FM Smokehouse on Wednesday for a night devoted to the beers of Peticolas.

Given the approaching cupid-based holiday, you have to figure that pint, tap nights and pairing events featuring chocolate and beer are just around the corner. For those that don't want to wait, this Saturday marks the return of the Ginger Man's annual Beer and Chocolate Tasting. Cost is $40pp, and reservations are required.

On the brewery front, take note of Community Beer Company's new taproom hours. They're open Thursday and Friday from 5-9 p.m., and 5-10 p.m. on Saturday after the regular tour. Also this Saturday, Martin House will be pouring two limited edition brews whose recipes were created by Brewer for a Day contest winner, Justin Foley.
