August 2 | Grand Openings: Satellite tasting rooms solve geography problems for beer fans whose favorite fermentationists are a tad too far from home. Two new spots will hold official opening events.

The latter goes through Sunday. | Pure Project at the Park, 2865 Fifth Avenue, Bankers Hill; Kilowatt Brewing Taproom and Provisions, 406 Mission Avenue, Oceanside; Times Vary

August 9-11 | 24th Anniversary Weekend: AleSmith Brewing is stretching its birthday into three days, celebrating the art of beer and other art forms.
