 Monday: Sixpoint Strong Ale Ataraxia launch at The Modern (9 W. 53rd St.)
“I love great art, and I love strong ales. And beer is art, after all!”

 Tuesday: Applewood beer dinner with Kelso Beer Co. (501 11th St., 7 p.m.)
“Digging into the tasty ingredients that tie together great artisan beer with an amazing farm-to-brewery-to-table dinner, this five-course beer dinner will feature specialties such as brewery-fresh spent grain pretzel rolls sweetened with malt syrup from Kelso.”

 Wednesday: Brewer’s Choice at City Winery (155 Varick St., 6 p.m., $60)
“This is a remarkable opportunity to meet the actual brewers behind all these incredible flavors, paired with foods from some of the best chefs in New York City.”

“How can you go wrong combining arcade games, the NYC Backgammon Guild and a slew of special Shmaltz Brewing releases, including our new Funky Jewbelation — a blend of six barrel-aged ales and lagers?”
 Saturday, March 2: The 2nd Annual aPORKalypse Now Local Beer and Pork Festival (5-14 51st Avenue, Long Island City, 12 p.m.-10 p.m., $40)
