Parleaux Beer Lab (634 Lesseps St., 504-702-8433; www.parleauxbeerlab.com) holds its grand opening party 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, June 3. There will be live music, food trucks and 12 beers on tap, including a few introduced during American Craft Beer Week. The brewery also made two special brews for the occasion: a 100 percent Brettanomyces-fermented stout aged with raspberries and cherries and a summer gose beer brewed with ginger, lime peel, Himalayan pink salt and coriander.

• Boucherie (www.boucherie-nola.com) teams up with local homebrew club Crescent City Homebrewers Wednesday, June 14 for a five-course dinner paired with beer at the restaurant's private event space at 8115 Jeannette St. The menu is still being determined, and the estimated cost is $50. For details, contact Mike Malley at malley_mike@hotmail.com.

• A few new local beers have hit the market, including NOLA Brewing Company's (3001 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-896-9996; www.nolabrewing.com) latest year-round IPA, Syncopation, a hazy, hop-forward beer made with Citra, Mosaic, Grungeist, Calypso and Ekuanot hops for a fresh citrus- and tropical fruit-forward aroma and taste. Syncopation will be brewed in limited quantities every other month or so, and its availability will vary.

  NOLA Brewing also is releasing a new version of its Hurricane Saison for summer. It is dry-hopped with Mosaic hops.

• Gnarly Barley Brewing Company (1709 Corbin Road, Hammond, 985-318-0723; www.gnarlybeer.com) released its new flagship IPA, Jucifer, during American Craft Beer Week in May, and six-packs of cans have arrived in stores.

  The Hammond brewery will have a release party for its rare Peanut Butter Korova on June 3. This will be the first batch available in four-can packs.

• Urban South Brewery (1645 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-267-4852; www.urbansouthbrewery.com) has cans of Grapefruit Holy Roller — not available outside of the brewery — and the second batch of Modillion, a double-dry hopped pale ale.
