Beer Tasting: Aloha from Kona Brewery @ BevMo WeHo. 4-7pm. The Van Nuys BevMo is doing this same tasting on Saturday. But then you’d have to go to Van Nuys. So you should probably just go to this one.

Bus Trip to Stone Brewing Co.’s 13th Anniversary Party. Load up @ Blue Palms Brewhouse. 7:15am. $45. RSVP to info@bluepalmsbrewhouse.com. A full day of drinking microbrews with someone else driving: As good as it gets. Meet for breakfast at Blue Palms, hit up the charity-supporting festivities, and bring some brew to share, ‘cuz Brian and the crew are literally going to to take one down and pass it around the bus.

Beer Tasting: Aloha from Kona Brewery @ BevMo VanNuys. 12-3pm. I know, I know. Van Nuys. Gross. But beer makes everything better and Kona makes some great beer, so if you find yourself in The Val, head to the Van Nuys BevMo for an oasis of non (or slightly less)-suckiness.

Wine Tasting: Critic’s Choice @ BevMo WeHo. 12-3pm. If you’re lucky enough to not be in Van Nuys on Saturday, go here instead.

Wine Tasting with Staci @ 55 Degree Wine. 6-9pm. I never know what Staci has up her sleeve since 55 Degree Wine doesn’t announce the tasting details until the day-of for this one, but she does something amazing every Tuesday, so you should check her out.
