The Washington Wine Academy’s DC School of Beer is hosting a Potomac River Beer Cruise this Friday, April 15.

Boarding begins at 8:15pm with an 8:30pm departure and the cruise will dock at 10:30pm. Once on the boat, enjoy 40 beers (most, but not all, of which are craft), an array of cheeses, crudites, bruschetta, and antipasto (all of which are included in the ticket price of $58.50. The boat will leave from the Washington Marina, which is located at 1300 Maine Avenue SW, near the foot of 15th Street.
