October 8 | Listening & Tasting Party: Due to permitting, many San Diego breweries aren’t allowed to provide live entertainment. Bummer, right? So, the opportunity to spend time bobbing along with The Silent Comedy at Monkey Paw Pub, drinking house beers, and supporting a good cause (Sound Off Apparel’s efforts to prevent human trafficking) is one to snatch up. | Monkey Paw Pub & Brewery, 805 16th Street, East Village, 5 p.m.
October 11 | Rock & Roll Happy Hour: Every Friday, The Local 94/9 FM DJ Jeremy Pritchard hosts a one-hour radio segment devoted to celebrating local craft beer. This month, 94/9’s doing a series of live broadcasts. This week’s will take place at Mother Earth Brew Co.’s Old Town Vista tap house. (Maybe they’ll announce that they’ll soon bottle their Sin-Tax Imperial Peanut Butter Stout.) | Mother Earth Tap House, 206 Main Street, Vista, 7 p.m.

October 11-13 | All Local Beer Weekend: As part of the anniversary festivities at Hamilton’s Tavern, owners Scot and Karen Blair are showing respect to their hometown by pouring beers from roughly 40 local breweries. For the most part, this includes hoppy ales of all kinds. Lord knows the Blairs had plenty to choose from…and now, so too, shall you. | Hamilton’s Tavern, 1521 30th Street, South Park
