PEAKS AND PINTS DRAFT HIGHLIGHTS TODAY

The-Lost-Abbey-Gnoel-de-Abbey-TacomaCOFFEE CINNAMON OATMEAL STOUT, Three Magnets Brewing: This rich and luxurious yet dry imperial oatmeal stout is accentuated with roasted cinnamon sticks and then used to cold steep Olympia Coffee Roasters Morning Star coffee. 10.1%

GNOEL DE ABBEY, The Lost Abbey: The Lost Abbey’s seasonal Gnoel de Abbey is a fresh take on the winter warmer. Partially aged in bourbon barrels means it drinks like roasted chestnut-flavored coffee that’s been respectfully spiked with bourbon. Beginning with aromas of freshly brewed espresso, Gnoel has hints of cocoa, vanilla, holiday spice, finishing with a crisp coffee bitterness. The body is so light that we forget we’re drinking a barrel-aged beer. 8.5%

Just as Santa prepares to deliver toys across the globe, Founders Brewing has announced what gifts it has in store for beer drinkers throughout 2019. Founders has unveiled its 2019 Beer Release Calendar. One item that jumps off the page involves the inclusion of its increasingly popular Canadian Breakfast Stout.

We all know that there’s yeast in our beer, but some drinkers get squeamish when they find it lurking at the bottom of a bottle. It can look kind of gunky, so they assume it’s not supposed to be there, or even that it might be bad for them. This isn’t the case. It’s not a fault. It’s just a sign that the beer has been bottle-conditioned. What is bottling-conditioning? Click here.

FOB Brewing in DuPont, Washington, will hold a release party for its Napalm In The Morning imperial brown ale 3-10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7. It’s brewed with Special Forces veteran owned and operated De Espresso Liber coffee. Portion of the proceeds to benefit GOLD STAR families.

TODAY’S LOCAL STEW

Buster a move …

THE GREAT BUSTER: A CELEBRATION, The Grand Cinema: Despite some talking-head testimonials from Carl Reiner, Johnny Knoxville, Leonard Maltin and Richard Lewis, The Great Buster at heart is an opportunity to hang with Director Peter Bogdanovich as he screens favorite sequences from Buster Keaton’s two- and five-reel masterpieces of the 1920s. It’s a relaxed study of greatness, of exquisite physical comedy, of how’d-he-do-that stuntwork, of a vigorous cinema artist who saw new and enduring possibilities for his medium. 1:10, 7 p.m., 606 S. Fawcett Ave., Tacoma

DIRECTORS’ LAB, University of Puget Sound: University of Puget Sound Theater Department matches scenes from six plays with student directors and actors in its Directors’ Lab series. It’s a festival of scenes. 5 and 7:30 p.m., Norton Clapp Theatre, Jones Hall, 1500 N. Warner St., Tacoma
