Oktoberfest seasons rolls on with the area's longest-running event happening this week in Addison. Taking place Thursday-Sunday at Addison Circle Park, the 31st annual edition of Addison Oktoberfest will feature the requisite attractions of live music, German good and Oktoberfest beer.

Elsewhere, Harvest Seasonal Kitchen in McKinney will offer growlers of its house beers for the first time on Thursday. That night, a launch party will occur to commemorate the occasion, with a new seasonal beer expected to debut on tap as well.

As for other things worth checking out, a number of unique beer and food pairings appear on the schedule this week. Check the listings below for details on events featuring sausages, tamales, tapas and tacos at various locales around the Metroplex.

Finally, take note that Celestial Beerworks will pour its beers for the first time on Thursday at Civil Pour, as the Dallas-based brewery becomes the latest to begin distribution to the North Texas market.

Cheers!
