It looks to be a fairly busy week event-wise here in North Texas, with no fewer than three festivals and three multi-day celebrations headlining the craft beer calendar.

On the festival front, Saturday's schedule has Tunes, Tails and Ales at Murphy Central Park, Hops and Props at the Fort Worth Aviation Museum, and TAP Fest at Texas Ale Project (T.A.P.) in Dallas. Tunes, Tails & Ales is the biggest celebration of the three, what with over 150 beers being poured by more than 30 breweries, but there's sure to be plenty of great beer to drink at all three events. For example, Hops and Props will pour beer from 15 local breweries, while a highlight of TAP Fest at T.A.P. will be the release of a barrel-aged version of The Caucasian.

Moving on to the multi-day events, rare brews will be the order of the day during Barrel Week at Strangeways, April Ale Week at Meddlesome Moth and Goose Island Migration Week at various Metroplex locations. The soire at the Moth also involves a couple of beer and food pairings, the first being an event with The Bruery and Funkwerks on Tuesday, followed by another with Jester King on Saturday. Check the listings below for more on those happenings, as well as what will be going down with Goose Island starting on Wednesday.

As for other items worth a look this week, Dog Days of Spring happens at the Holy Grail Pub on Tuesday, while On Rotation will offer a Hypnotic Donuts & Beer Paring on Saturday. There are also a number of new beers scheduled to debut this week, including Porter Lynn Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter at On Rotation on Monday, Intrinsic Wait...What? on Tuesday, Juice Session IPA with Lime at Martin House on Thursday, and Grapefruit IPA at Shannon on Friday. Also occurring Friday, 3 Nations will roll out Over the Top, a beer that gets its name from a movie, at Texas Theatre.

Cheers!
