Half Acre Beer Company is taking over the taps at Ray’s Growler Gallery (8930 W. North Ave.) from 5 to 10 p.m. Flour Girl & Flame will be there making wood-fired pizzas.

Friday, Nov. 4

Broken Bat Brewing (135 E. Pittsburgh Ave.) is celebrating a brand refresh with the release of six new beers this weekend. The new beers hit the taps at noon.

Deeply Rooted, a barleywine aged in bourbon barrels, is being released at 3 Sheeps Brewing (1837 North Ave., Sheboygan). It’s a safe bet that it will be very good.

Girls Pint Out hosts a brewery crawl at Lincoln Warehouse (2018 S. 1st St.) from 6 to 10 p.m. The event is co-ed and includes stops at Torzala Brewing Co., Component Brewing Co. and New Barons Brewing Co-op.

Totes of Oats, a double IPA brewed with oats, is the weekly release at 1840 Brewing Company (342 E. Ward St.). Presale starts at 9 a.m.

Good Land Loom fiber art is the highlight of Gallery Night at Gathering Place Brewing (811 E. Vienna Ave.) from 5 to 10 p.m.

Sample beers from Titletown Brewing (3 to 6 p.m.) and get a taste of this year’s Bell’s Brewery Hopslam (4 to 6 p.m.) at Discount Liquor Milwaukee (5031 W. Oklahoma Ave.).

Discount Liquor Waukesha (919 N. Barstow St.) is handing out samples of LaChouffe from 4 to 6 p.m.

Saturday, Nov. 5

Bags & Brews is happening at Ope! Brewing Company (6751 W. National Ave.). The cornhole tournament benefits Good Friend Inc. and promotes autism acceptance. Reserve a spot in the tournament online and get there by 12:30 p.m. Food trucks will be there and there will be a meat raffle and skills competition.

The Beer & Bacon Walk comes to downtown Racine from 1 to 6 p.m. For $40 you can walk around town and sample craft beer and nearly two dozen bacon-related appetizers. Sounds fine to me.

The weekly release at Hacienda Beer Co. (2018 E. North Ave.) is True Hallucinations, a hazy double IPA.

Discount Liquor Milwaukee is offering samples from Three Floyds and WarPigs from noon to 2 p.m.
