Mangia! | Bagby Beer Co., 601 South Coast Highway, Oceanside, 5-10 p.m.
Saturday, January 25 | Anniversary Party: Nobody does a parking-lot party quite as well as Pure Project Brewing. It helps to have a lot as big as theirs and they don’t waste a single bit of space, installing tents for the dispensing of beers stockpiled all year long (and beer slushies), food trucks, game areas and just about everything a beer (or fun) lover needs to feel at home. | Pure Project Brewing, 9030 Kenamar Drive, #308, Miramar, VIP: 12-1 p.m., General Admission: 1-5 p.m.
Thursday, January 30 | Opening Day: The Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians spent last year revamping every facet of its brewing operation, overhauling staff, changing up its beer recipes, updating its aesthetic and décor, and giving it a new identity: Rincon Reservation Road Brewery. Be among the first to check out all of the above when it officially opens to the public. | Rincon Reservation Road Brewery at Harrah’s Southern California Resort, 777 South Resort Drive, Valley Center, 2 p.m.
