Craft beer seems to be getting more popular by the minute. To help slake your thirst, nightlife-development company 213, along with beer sommeliers Hallie Beaune and Christina Perozzi (a.k.a. "The Beer Chicks"), will be hosting the second-annual Los Angeles Craft Beer Crawl from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday. The downtown event is designed to showcase local craft breweries and their artisanal beers.

A general admission ticket ($49) includes a six-ounce tasting glass and unlimited tastings of 89 different craft beers at seven different bars and restaurants. Participating brewers include Stone Brewing Co., Firestone Walker, New Belgium Brewing and more. Food will be available for purchase from Cole's French Dip, Casey's Irish Pub and several food trucks, including Ludo Bites.

 A portion of the proceeds are to be donated to Heal the Bay. Tickets can be purchased online. www.lacraftbeercrawl.com.
