Napa Valley and alcohol fit together better than Fred Astaire and tap shoes, but rarely does beer take the spotlight in this vino-flavored town. Behold, a tradition is born at the first Napa Homebrewers’ Classic. Homemade beer and live music steal the stage during this daylong festival that stands to benefit local emergency women’s services and youth scholarships. Get a little tipsy for charity on Saturday, Oct. 8, at the Napa Valley Expo. 575 Third St., Napa. 11am–5pm. $25. 707.253.2008.
