Martin House Brewing's 5-Year Anniversary
1 Fort Worth has become a brewtastic place for beer lovers, and this is one of the places that has given the city its reputation. Martin House celebrates a milestone from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday with eight unreleased barrel-aged beers, more than 40 beers on tap and a giant whiskey barrel of Acheron, its aged imperial stout. Plus there will be live music and food trucks to soak up all that alcohol. Let's just hope the weather cooperates.

Sylvania Ave., Fort Worth. 817-222-0177; martinhousebrewing.com

iMake Maker Fest

Best of all, they can meet social media star-chalk artist David Zinn at an iMake workshop at 10 a.m. Saturday. The festival runs 10 a.m. -5 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $12-$15; the Zinn workshop is a $5 admission. The museum is at 1600 Gendy St., Fort Worth. 817-255-9300; fwmuseum.org
