This week's update of craft beer events in North Texas features another round of anniversaries, a community gathering at a new area brewpub, and the market debut of a popular national brewery.

On the anniversary front, three area breweries are celebrating birthdays this week. Texas Ale Project of Dallas toasts its sixth anniversary with Tap Fest 2021 running Thursday through Sunday, while Saturday celebrations include the Three Year Anniversary Party at Armadillo Ale Works in Denton, and Pack to the Future, the one year anniversary celebration at False Idol Brewing in North Richland Hills.

As for the aforementioned market debut, Toppling Goliath Brewing Co. of Iowa is now shipping its products to Texas, and a number of local venues are holding release parties to mark the occasion. Check the listings below for details on such events at Craft Beer Cellar Dallas, Meddlesome Moth and area Flying Saucer locations.

Lastly, Cedar Creek Brewhouse & Eatery is now open in Farmers Branch, and the company is wasting no time in rolling out the red carpet for its first community event. Happening Sunday, SliderMania will bring together over 20 local breweries to benefit Metrocrest Services.

Cheers!
