Weekend preview: Concerts, comedy and a taste of Germany

Those visiting the Beau Rivage’s 2011 Craft Beer Festival this evening will find an evening of authentic German food and live music, and more than 120 of the best artisan beers available. The soiree runs from 7 to 10 p.m. on the second floor pool deck and has a fee of $65, with discounts available.

Elsewhere this weekend, you’ll find Jack Hanna’s “Into the Wild” and Clay Walker in separate shows at the Hard Rock, Jeffrey Osbourne at the IP, and Bill Cosby at the Beau.
