Attendees have the chance to sip craft brews and sample snacks at more than 25 locations in the downtown area. Guests are encouraged to wear green clothes and accessories in the St. Patrick's Day spirit.
The brew crawl runs from 5-8 p.m. March 14. Event-goers will receive a wristband, commemorative 2020 St. Patrick's Day Brew Crawl glass and program that includes a map and listing of participating businesses and breweries.
Tickets cost $45 through midnight March 13. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the check-in tables outside the Museum on Main for $50 cash or check only. For more information, visit pleasantondowntown.net.

Set those clocks forward
Daylight Saving Time is scheduled to begin this weekend. Remember to set your clocks forward one hour as of 2 a.m. this Sunday (March 8).
The Livermore Area Recreation and Park District announced the start of its free weekend ranger-led Nature Programs all month long, open to all residents -- though children and teenagers must be accompanied by an adult.
The first session is "Holdener Hills and Flowers" this Sunday (March 8) at 10 a.m. at Holdener Park, 2995 Hansen Road in Livermore.
"Join Ranger Amy for a slow-paced, one-mile wander to see how many different types of wildflowers we can find. Trails are narrow and steep, but we will be traveling slowly," LARPD officials said.
The other events are each at Sycamore Grove Park: "Mammals of the Ice Age" on March 14, "March (Wildflower) Madness" on March 22 and "Spring Creek Walk" on March 28. Call 960-2400 for information.
The Alameda County Fire Department recently announced an outage with its PulsePoint app that could likely extend into next month.
"ACFD implemented a planned upgrade to our computer dispatch software. We are currently working with PulsePoint developers to fix the PulsePoint outage. We anticipate PulsePoint to be active again on April 15, 2020," fire officials posted on the department's Twitter account.
The PulsePoint app allows subscribers who are trained in CPR to be alerted if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may require CPR, a service offered in the area in collaboration with ACFD.
'One City, One Book'
The Dublin community is once again joining together for a shared reading experience with its "One City, One Book" program in which individual residents and families all read the same book during the month of March.
The book this time around is "Flora & Ulysses," by best-selling author Kate DiCamillo. A master calendar has been created so that everyone reading "Flora & Ulysses" can stay on track and read the same chapters each day. For more information, visit dublin.ca.gov.
Veteran housing support
The city of Livermore's Housing Authority earlier this winter was awarded $68,706 from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department's Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program that aims to give homeless military veterans access to supportive housing.
U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein announced the local funding as part of $10.5 million in federal grants disbursed throughout California in the program, which specifically targets chronically homeless veterans and pairs housing with case management services through the Veterans Affairs Department.
