Tuesday, August 13 at 7:00 PM – Inaugural Local Beer Debate Dinner at Farmers Fishers Bakers – 3000 K Street NW
As the DMV's craft brewing scene flourishes, so does the competition to create a great, unique beer. Farmers Fishers Bakers will host a five-course tasting dinner that will let the beer from three local brewers speak for itself. Devils Backbone Brewing (VA), Flying Dog Brewery (MD), and 3 Stars Brewing Company (DC) will each bring their A-game as they vie for the title of 'DC Local Beer Debate' champion, to be decided by guests that attend the event. Each course will be paired with three tastings from each brewery — that's five farm–inspired dishes from Executive Chef Joe Goetze and fifteen beers from three of the area's best breweries. Tickets are $74 per person, including tax, gratuity, and gift bag. Tickets available at ffbbeerdebatedinner.bpt.me.

As beer expands into all manner of flavor and aromatic elements, it is only natural that some would ask, "How do we take that complexity even further?" Jack Rose will play host to some of the East Cost's most beloved mixologists this DC Beer Week, as they bring the flair of cocktails and spirits into the conversation. Boulevard Brewing Co, Flying Dog, and Brewery Ommegang are sponsoring the action and their beers will be the basis of each creation. The roof deck will allow ticket holders to be a part of the judging process while tasting every entry to the competition for one set price. They will also be invited to observe the artists at work, and watch the industry expert judges confer to pick a grand champion. Admission is $25 day of the event. Those wishing to join in the festivities on an a la carte basis will have the option of purchasing any of the competing cocktails in the downstairs bar.
