This week's rundown of craft beer events in North Texas is heavy on beer and food-themed events, with beer dinners, barbecues and dessert pairings showing up on the schedule.

Along those lines, a Barrel-Aged Beer Dinner with Martin House will take place at Ellerbe Fine Foods on Wednesday, while White Rock Alehouse & Brewery will host its fourth House Beer Dinner on Thursday. Though, if you're looking to get your steak fix, you'll probably want to check out the Fifth Annual Rahr B-Q at Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. on Sunday.

As for other food pairing festivities, chips, ice cream and cake balls will be featured during events at White Rock Alehouse on Monday, Taps & Caps Fort Worth on Friday and LUCK on Sunday.

Finally, Taps & Caps locations will be the place to be on Tuesday (Lewisville) and Wednesday (Fort Worth), as the shop celebrates the North Texas market launch of 21st Amendment Brewery of California.

Cheers!
