Boulevard Brewing Co. Atlas Brew Works. D.C. Brau. These are just a handful of the local breweries slated to show up for this year’s D.C. Beer Fest on Saturday, November 5th. All in all, there are nearly 80 of them on the roster, including a handful of regional wineries, craft seltzer makers, and cideries.
They’re converging upon Nationals Park for a full day of drinking with two sessions, one from noon to 3 p.m. and the other from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets to either session ($50+) include unlimited tastings of the craft suds, which you’ll grab from tents sprinkled all throughout the concourse. If you spring for a VIP ticket, you’ll also have access to the warning track and the dugouts. With food trucks slinging the small bites, burgers, and other fresh food, and musicians and DJs laying down an upbeat live soundtrack, there’s plenty of fun to be had at the D.C. Beer Fest beyond just the drinking. That includes lawn games! Grab your tickets now and dressed comfortably for the outdoor setting at the D.C. Beer Fest.
