This week's rundown of craft beer events in North Texas features a brewpub anniversary, as well as a pair of late-summer festivals.

On the anniversary front, Steam Theory Brewing Co. of Dallas will celebrate its first anniversary with a birthday bash on Saturday. Attractions for the event are expected to include live music, food specials and over 20 house beers on tap.

Moving on to the festival topic, two such gatherings are on the bill for Saturday. In Plano, the Holy Grail Pub will mark its tenth year business with Grail Fest 2019, while NYTEX Sports Centre in North Richland Hills throws its hat into the festival ring with its Beer Bash on Ice House Drive. Both events will feature beers from local brewers and beyond.

As for other goings on, it's IPA Week at the Meddlesome Moth in Dallas, where upwards of 30 IPAs are set to be tapped on Monday. Then this weekend, Saturday's is the day for Pickle Fest with Martin House Brewing Co., taking place at Lone Star Taps & Caps locations in Fort Worth and Lewisville.

Cheers!
