2161 India Street, Little Italy
April 22 | Homebrew Trade & Taste: Little Italy’s original Bottlecraft location is as much a center for craft beer communalism as it is a retail outlet. Helping to foster this well-earned reputation is this event, where homebrewers are invited to come together to share tastes of each other’s hand-crafted wares along with recipes and individual techniques. | Bottlecraft, 2161 India Street, Little Italy, 7 p.m.
9550 Distribution Avenue, Miramar
April 23 | Hawaiian-themed Beer Dinner: Miramar’s Saint Archer Brewery is nearly a year-old. Like any youthful bunch, they love to party, and The Lodge at Torrey Pines’ casual restaurant, The Grill, will be setting the tone for some revelry with an island-style, beer-paired menu including Kahlua-style porchetta, poke, and Hawaiian specialty “loco moco.” | The Lodge at Torrey Pines, 11480 Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla, 6:30 p.m.
2891 University Avenue, North Park
April 25 | Reader On Tap: We’re taking over North Park Theatre to host a night of equally stellar sounds and suds, featuring top tier beer from some of San Diego County’s most notable brewing companies, as well as food from West Coast Tavern, and live music by Transfer, Dead Feather Moon, The Creepy Creeps, Low Volts, and Schitzophonics. Yeah, we love to party, too! | North Park Theatre, 2891 University Avenue, North Park, 5 p.m.
