Switchback Brewing celebrates the launch of its new smoked beer series with a day of smoke and fire. Local craftspeople and vendors hawk their wares at a pop-up artists market while visitors snack on smoked meats from Bluebird Barbecue and Vermont Salumi and sip barrel-aged brews. As evening descends, revelers will shimmy and shake to tunes by Bella's Bartok and Doctor Rick and take in a fire dance from Cirque de Fuego. Proceeds benefit the Lake Champlain Land Trust.

Flynn on Fire Festival: Saturday, September 29, 3-10 p.m., Switchback Brewing, Burlington. $12-16. Info, 651-4114,
