Craft beer fans, rejoice!
Founders Jeff Wells (local distributor) and Teddy Folkman (chef/beer aficionado) are bringing back DC beer Week. The 7th annual festival event boasts a variety of educational and tasting events throughout the week of August 9-16, 2015.
“The DC beer scene has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years because of breweries (local, regional, and national), bars, restaurants, bottle shops, distributors, and, most importantly, beer fans,” says 2015 DC Beer Week co-chair Bill DeBaun. “DC Beer Week is a celebration of our local scene and a chance to continue that growth.”
As in past years, dozens of venues in the District, Virginia and Maryland will host a variety of events, including beer dinners, tastings, tap takeovers, and more. This year, DC Beer Week will kick things off with Brewers on the Block, a major day-time event that will bring together 20 of the region’s best breweries on Sunday, August 9 at Suburbia at Union Market.
