Sunday-Monday, 6/1-6/2: This two-day event — nostalgically called It’s Jolly Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!  will feature 12 lines of Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales on tap at BRU from 1 p.m. to 2 a.m.

We’ll be pouring drafts of Mahr’s Helles, Drie Fonteinen Zwet.Be, Adnams Broadside, Mikkeller/To Øl Betelgueze, and Nøgne-Ø Two Captains. Finally, over at the Prohibition Taproom is a St. Somewhere dinner starting at 7 p.m.

Thursday, 6/5: Enjoy tacos and Jolly Pumpkin beer — a winning, if unconventional, combination — at Jose Pistola’s from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Andorfer Claudiator release party is at Brauhaus Schmitz from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. (Side note: It’ll be the only bar in the U.S. to have this weizendoppelbock available!) Stop by Whole Foods in Wayne from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to sample some Jolly Pumpkin. Then it’s Shelton Brothers Night at Pinnochio’s Beer Garden in Media from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Keep an eye out for a possible surprise appearance from the guys at Naparbier!

Friday, 6/6: Unleash your inner Viking at “Doorway to Norway” at Khyber Pass Pub from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., featuring beer from Nøgne-Ø, Haandbryggeriet, Lervig, and Ægir. You can also find Jolly Pumpkin tonight at Prohibition Taproom from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Plus, there’s another possible event with Naparbier in the works.

Friday-Saturday, 6/6-6/7: It’s “Gose Gone Wild” at Brauhaus Schmitz, but please, beer geeks, keep your shirts on. The event will, as the name suggests, feature gose, a specialty German beer brewed with salt and coriander. The menu will include beer from Ritterguts, Freigeist, and The Monarchy.

Saturday, 6/7: Check out a Haandbryggeriet tasting at The Loft from 4 to 6 p.m. And don’t miss our Mikkeller Tap Takeover at Churchville Inn, starting at 6 p.m.   -JD
