Need Something To Do Saturday?

This weekend marks the end of the 2014 American Craft Beer Week, so you better make the best of it. 

Sockeye Brewing hosts a beer event not to be missed: the Brew-O-Lympics, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. today, at the brewery's new location at 12542 W. Fairview Ave.

Teams from Sockeye, Payette, Woodland Empire, 10 Barrel, Crooked Fence, Edge, RAM, Highlands Hollow, Bogus, Slanted Rock and Sawtooth will compete in beer events, including keg toss, flip cup, quaffing, corn hole, basketball sharpshooter, tug of war and an obstacle course relay. Sockeye will provide trophies and each brewery will have a beer on tap. All proceeds will be donated to the state brewer's guild, Idaho Brewers United.

In downtown Boise, Bittercreek Ale House is hosting its one-day-only Cellar Bottle Blowout, with specials on select bottles from the cellar, as well as samples of "coveted vintage rarities" and snacks.

Hit the road in Meridian for New Belgium Brewing's Meridian Bike Ride. Registration is $5 and takes place from 11 a.m.-noon at The Curb. The ride will cruise to stops at Harry's, Rudy's, Brewforia and Beef O'Bradys, with $3 New Belgium pint specials.

And in case you need reminding, Woodland Empire Ale Craft is tapping its Space Stout and holding a Pac-Man tournament from 5-8 p.m. on Sunday, May 18, and Bier:Thirty joins the Southwest Idaho Mountain Biking Association Ride with Sockeye Trail Digger Pale Ale, 10 a.m.
