For some, summer is beach dates and camping trips; for me, it is a season of increased beer cravings. There’s just something about languidly enjoying an ice-cold pint of the good stuff that makes it feel like summer. For my fellow beer lovers, here are two local restaurants have announced brew-based events that will make you very thirsty.

The details: On Tuesday, August 25, Petaluma-based HenHouse Brewing Company and SF-founded Social Kitchen and Brewery will join Berkeley’s Comal restaurant for an evening of small batch beers paired with chef Matt Gandin’s Oaxacan dishes. Good food and good brews? That’s our kind of summer evening.
The address: 2020 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley
The date/time: Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 6:30pm
The price: $60 (food, beer and service charge included)
The reservations: Space is limited; tickets can be purchased via Ticketfly
The etc.: Don’t miss the collaboration brews crafted specially for this evening.
Hog & Rocks' new late night menu.
The details: This Mission restaurant is more than ham and oysters. It’s now a place of tasty late night deals on Friday and Saturday nights. The scene stealer? House made sausage and a beer for just $15. Think pork bratwurst with zucchini pepper slaw and Flying Dog IPA.
The address: 3431 19th Street.
The date/time: Friday and Saturday nights, 11 p.m. – 1 a.m.
The etc.: What are you waiting for? There is a barstool calling your name.
