Beer parties

Take a break from hunting down bottles of the Russian River Brewing Co. and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.’s collaboration Brux, and mark your calendar for two special beer events. First, Clips of Faith, a New Belgium Brewing fundraiser in Davis’ Central Park (at B and Fourth streets) on Friday, August 10, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, proceeds from the 15 different beers go to Davis Bicycles!, and a big crowd’s expected. Also: Hit up IPA Appreciation Days at Hot City Pizza (5642 J Street) from August 2 to 5. There’ll be some 10 hopped-up beers each day—plus Lincoln-based Knee Deep Brewing Co.’s limited-release imperial red. Now, back to the Brux.
