Did Someone Say Beer?

We did!

If there was ever any doubt (there wasn’t) that D.C. loves its beer, these two events will have you believing again! That’s right, TWO events, on the same day nonetheless happening right here in our backyard. August 15th will certainly be a day to remember filled with craft beer, good friends, good food and even better times.

So here is the low-down on August 15th:

Capital Brew Fest
DC’s “best beer, wine & musical festival” is bringing more than 50 of the very best regional beers to Dock 5 at Union Market for unlimited tasting in one amazing day. There will also be 25+ wines and 10+ ciders, and you get to try them all! This event will happen rain or shine thanks to thousands of feet of indoor, air conditioned space along with a fantastic outdoor terrace for live music and soaking up a little sun while you beer. You are allowed to bring your own food and closed water bottles.
