On tap: DFW craft beer events, week of January 20

Examiner picks of the week
Examiner picks of the week
Holy Grail Pub, Dogfish Head, Independent Ale Works, LUCK, Rabbit Hole Brewing Company, Sportsradio 1310

I'm not sure there's such a thing as the winter doldrums in Texas, but if there is the appropriate cure just might be the Dog Days of Winter. Going on Tuesday night at the Holy Grail Pub, get your fill of Dogfish Head favorites like Bitches Brew, Black & Blue, American Beauty and Burton Baton (anybody else notice how many "B"s there are in those beer names?).

One night later, join the guys from Rabbit Hole at LUCK as they feature Mike Modano's 561 Kölsch-Style Beer. Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket will be broadcasting live and they'll be talking beer and sports with the Dallas Stars legend.

Then, once the weekend rolls around, re-introduce yourself to Independent Ale Works as they celebrate the grand opening of their taproom. It all goes down on Saturday at the brewery in Krum.

Finally, remember that the Total Beer Experience continues this week at Total Wine. Check the link at the bottom of the page for recommendations on the best of what they have to offer.
