October 19 | Grand Opening Celebrewtion: After 11 months in business, Vista’s Belching Beaver Brewery is finally holding its official grand opening. Realizing they’re almost a year in, they’re also releasing their first anniversary ale. So, they’re in on the joke, and if you haven’t already, you can get in on the quality beers this North County newish brewing company is putting out. | Belching Beaver Brewery, 980 Park Center Drive, Suite A, Vista, 12 p.m.
October 19 | Humptoberfest: Young operation Latitude 33 Brewing Company has earned a following for its British-meets-SoCal Camel Corps IPA. Enough that they hold an annual celebration around it. Try six versions of Camel Corps: Double Hump (imperial IPA), Wet Hump (a fresh hop version), Spicy Camel (smoked habaneros and cayenne pepper), and more. | Latitude 33 Brewing Company, 1430 Vantage Court, Suite 104, Vista, 12 p.m.
October 20 | Pour It Black: With year-round sun and brewers who excel at hopping beers within an inch of their life, the reigning beer styles are crisp pale ales and IPAs, making the opportunity to encounter dozens of rare and exquisite brown and black beers—porters stouts, black IPAs and the like—a bit of a rarity. This festival really shows what the darker side of beer has to offer. | *Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Escondido, 1999 Citracado Parkway, Escondido, 10 a.m.*
