It’s Portland Beer Week (Week and a Half, actually) from Nov. 1-10, and tonight several venues are featuring great Maine beers — Marshall Wharf brews at Novare Res, Allagash at The Great Lost Bear, and adult beverages from Bayside purveyors at Nosh. The New England Beer Dinner at The Thirsty Pig (37 Exchange St., Portland) pairs five choice beers with a five-course dinner inspired by regional cuisine, from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. Cost: $50. 773-2469. portlandbeerweek.org.
