A new year is here and there's a lot to look forward to on the craft beer calendar. As you'll see in "Further Out", dates have been announced for Paste Untapped Fort Worth and Big Texas Beer Fest. Tickets for Untapped went on sale over the holidays, while those for BTBF will be up for grabs starting January 10.

Focusing on the here and now, pint nights and special tappings will be the primary form of beer-themed entertainment this week. Among the highlights are Founders Brewsday Tuesday at the Common Table, tap takeovers with Adelbert's and Shmaltz/He'Brew at area World of Beer locations, and a Texas-style Glass Night featuring Lakewood Bourbon Barrel Temptress going on Wednesday at FM Smokehouse.

Elsewhere, other items of interest include educational events on Tuesday at Pour House Fort Worth and Saturday at the Community Beer Company, as well as the Vegan Beer Dinner on Wednesday at the Libertine.
