DORCHESTER — CommonWealth Kitchen, a collaborative non-profit that helps small food business get off the ground, is celebrating its first year at the Bornstein & Pearl Food Production Center (196 Quincy St., Dorchester) with a Summer Festival this Saturday, July 11. From 4 - 7 p.m., CWK's member food trucks — which includes The Dining Car, Walloon's, and the Cupcakory — will be on hand, as well as area food vendors. There will be food demonstrations, music, and activities, too. The event is free, but an online RSVP is requested. [Eventbrite]

BRIGHTON — Public radio and craft booze. WGBH knows this is a winning combination, which is why Boston's local NPR station is hosting its third annual Craft Beer Fest this Saturday, July 11. Join breweries including Clown ShoesHopsters, and new kid on the block The Mighty Squirrel, which makes protein-packed brews. Cideries including Far From the Tree will be there, and there will be Roxy's Grilled Cheese and Yumm Bai on hand with non-liquid sustenance. Tickets are $40 - $50. [Official Site]

CAMBRIDGE — The 13th annual Taste of Cambridge is happening on Tuesday, July 14. [UPDATE: Moved to Thursday, July 16 because of a rainy forecast on Tuesday.] One hundred of Cambridge's restaurants will converge at MIT's University Park in Central Square, treating guests to a feast of samples. Tickets are $50 - $75 and come with four beer tickets — plus, proceeds benefit Cambridge non-profits.
