Catch These Vibes With PnB Rock At House Of Blues, Celebrate Three Years Of BrainDead Brewing Company And Sail With Awolnation At The Pavilion At Toyota Music Factory.

If you’re a fan of Jameson and craft beer — local craft beer in particular — then look no farther than this week’s On Tap! brew to find something that combines the two.

This week, our beer reviewer singled out Martin House Brewing’s new addition The Morrigan. The Morrigan is the product of a collaboration between Irish whiskey maker Jameson and the Fort Worth brewery.

The brew packs a mean punch in its ABV content and smells like Jameson. At the same time, each sip brings out the barleywine brew’s own caramel and dried fruit flavors. The beer is only available in two-can pack format, right now, but per our reviewer, it’s well worth it.

So if you’re looking to get a good buzz going this weekend, you might want to pick up a two-pack of The Morrigan and down it — you know, as long as you’re not the designated driver — before heading out to one of the following events going on in town this weekend. — Obed Manuel
