Rain or shine, we're ready to drink some beer this week and weekend. Luckily there are plenty of opportunities to do so. Check out these six events Thursday through Sunday.
Kettle Art Gallery and Deep Ellum Brewing Co. have teamed up for the gallery's third Deep Ellum Scavenger Hunt. Teams of two to five people meet at the art gallery at 6:30 p.m. Thursday for registration before setting out across the neighborhood in search of special DEBC tap handles. Teams follow picture clues uploaded to Kettle Art's Instagram in hopes of hitting all the spots. The hunt concludes at 8:30 p.m. and will be followed by an after party -- yes, with beer -- at Kettle. And there will be prizes too. Entry costs $10 per person and participants must be 21 years or older with a valid ID.
Thirsty Thursday at Frisco RoughRiders game
Thursday home games at the Frisco RoughRiders' Dr Pepper Ballpark are a special occasion for beer drinkers, especially those into craft. From 6 to 8 p.m., all domestic brews are just $1 and crafts are only $2. As the GuideLive team recently found out, there are tons of fun things to do and eat while you're there. Plus, this will give you a chance to try the team's brand spankin' new craft beer, RoughRiders Red Ale. The boys take on the Springfield Cardinals at 7:05 p.m.
If you're feeling particularly motivated Saturday morning, the newly opened Texas Ale Project is hosting a couple of runs with the reward of -- you guessed it -- beer! Registration for both the 5K and the 10K begin at 7:30 a.m. and the races take off at 9 a.m. The brewery is hosting an after party with food trucks and outdoor games. Runners receive one complimentary beer with registration and after that, they can purchase beers by the pint ($5) or flight ($8).

Sarah Jaffe DJ set at Common Table
Another first-time event, the Common Table's new Milk Crate Sessions series kicks off with a performance by DFW indie darling Sarah Jaffe. She'll be playing a DJ set beginning at 10 p.m. If you're wondering what this has to do with beer, consider the venue -- the Common Table, which opened in 2010, was recently named one of the area's best craft beer bars because of its rotating selection of quality beverages. If you're looking for something sweeter, though, you could always try the Skittles Sangria.
LUCK restaurant in Trinity Groves has teamed up with Glazed Donut Works to host another round of the ever-popular craft-beer-and-artisan-doughnut flight on Sunday. This time the brews and mini doughnut pairings are as follows: strawberry old fashioned doughnut with StrIPA (FireWheel Brewing Co.); Nutella-drizzled chocolate old fashioned doughnut with Donut Dunker porter (Cobra Brewing Co.); watermelon yeast-raised doughnut with Hopochondria session IPA (Lakewood Brewing Co.); and turtle-topped chocolate doughnut with Somethin' Shady porter (Texas Ale Project). We recommend getting there early -- like really early.
Try a pizza-flavored beer
Remember that time Pizza Hut created a pepperoni pilsner? Oh wait, that was an April Fool's joke, but this next event is not. Dallas-based Four Corners Brewing Co. teamed up with the forthcoming Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery to a pizza-inspired craft beer. According to the Facebook event, it's an ale with bready malts infused with rosemary, basil, and oregano, that was then fermented with saison yeast for "a peppery character." Get a taste at the Four Corners taproom beginning at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
