Raise your stein to the KC Bier Co. this weekend.

We love when breweries have anniversaries because beer drinkers are the one who gets presents. Kansas City Bier Co. (310 W 79th Street) celebrates its one year anniversary with a party Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. They’ll have tours at 1 and 5 p.m., as well as live music, specialty beers and souvenir glasses. Tonight, they’re holding a happy hour celebration at Bier Station (120 E Gregory Boulevard), where they’ll tap five kegs (Weizenbock Pale Wheat Bock, Double Alt, Helles Dunkel, Pils and Heifeweizen) at 4 p.m. and  be doling out some fun glassware.

Border Brewing Co. (406 E 18th Street) — a new craft brewery in the Crossroads (read about them here in The Pitch) — has its grand opening Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The tap room seats 42 people and they’ll have five beers (see the list here) ready to go: Blonde Ale, Chocolate Milk Stout (on Nitro), Imperial IPA, Patio Extra Pale Ale and Rooftop Red Ale. It’s $2 sample pours and $6 flights of four tasting glasses. They’ll also be open Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

The circus is in town. The Midnight Underground Circus to be exact. LiveKC, the folks who brought the Fiery Stick Open to Kansas City last year, are back with a party in the Municipal Auditorium Exhibition Hall (301 W 13th Street) from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. that will include aerialists, a carnival midway and a surprise act at midnight. This circus is definitely for adults as it also includes beer and champagne with your $62 ticket.

A beer bar hiding inside a movie theater opens this weekend. The Screenland Crossroads (1701 McGee, Suite 200) will unleash Tapcade — a beer bar and old-school arcade — on an unsuspecting KC. The new theater will be open from 4 to 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 4 to 11 p.m. Sunday.

Farm life means you’re working no matter what the thermometer tells you. It’s Winter on the Farm Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mahaffie Stagecoach Shop & Farm Historic Site in Olathe. Tickets are $6 ($4 for children age 5-11) to learn about sausage making, corn grinding, oxen training and chicken and pig processing. On Saturday, they’ll also be hosting Pancakes with the Presidents ($7, have to register today) from 8:30 to 10 a.m. for those that like a short stack with a side of Abe Lincoln and George Washington.
