January 25 | Beer For Breakfast: One of the best things about cozy-if-not-a-bit-crunched Small Bar are the decadent morning-time dishes they bust out on weekends. It’s all about big, decadent flavors that go great with a little hair of the dog. The latter will be provided this time around by craft-beer canine, AleSmith, and feature a cask of barrel-aged Speedway Stout! | Small Bar, 4628 Park Boulevard, University Heights, 10 a.m.
16761 Bernardo Center Drive, Rancho Bernardo
January 25 | Black Out: Sunny weather perfectly suited for lighter colored, lighter bodied beers makes an event featuring dozens of taps spewing all sorts of dark beers, from hoppy black IPAs (or Cascadian dark ales, if you prefer) to coffee-tinged porters and luscious, chocolaty imperial stouts, something special and worth setting time aside for. | Urge Gastropub, 16761 Bernardo Center Drive, Rancho Bernardo, 5 p.m.*
