This weekend is Saloon Door's five-year anniversary party. There are tons of beer releases each day, including bourbon-barrel-aged wee heavies (what you might also call Scotch ales), plus live music Friday and Saturday and a Super Smash Bros. tournament on Sunday. Head out to Webster for the fun.
Ingenious has some fruit freezers available—frozen beer cocktails, let's call them.

You can enjoy them at the Humble brewery.
Urban South HTX has a bunch of releases: Thiols of Berkeley, an IPA with Galaxy, Motueka, and Citra; Timepiece, a helles-style lager with Oregon malts; Spilled: raspberry, Nerds, and ice cream, which was conditioned on Nerds candy; and Spilled: Berry, White Chocolate. Get them at the Sawyer Yards facility.
