Washington, DC – July, 2015
Craft beer fans, rejoice! The 7th annual DC Beer Week returns to the National Capital Region this summer with a variety of educational and tasting events planned 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. Restaurants, bars, breweries, and other venues interested in participating in this year’s DC Beer Week should contact DC Beer Week organizers via email at dcbeerweek(at)gmail(dot)com for more information.
This year, DC Beer Week will kick things off with a massive event that will bring together 20 of the region’s best breweries. Brewers on the Block will take place on Sunday, August 9 at Suburbia at Union Market. The day-time event will have all the same fun as the event by the same name in 2014, but much, much bigger. Tickets start at just $30 and will be available soon through DCBeerWeek.net.
