If you're feeling festive this week, there are not one, but two beer festivals on tap for Saturday. The third annual edition of Tunes, Tail and Ales will be happening at Murphy Central Park, while Hops & Props goes down at the Fort Worth Aviation Museum. Both events will feature food vendors, family friendly activities and beer from a variety of Texas brewers.

As for other things worth checking out this week, Texas Ale Project will host Tap Fest, otherwise known as its third anniversary party, on Saturday. Then on Sunday, it's time for another round of Donut & Beer Pairing Flights at LUCK, with this installment featuring brews from 903 Brewers, Small Brewpub, Rahr & Sons and Oak Highlands.

Cheers!
