Okay, so a beerendar isn't a real thing. But maybe it could be? Chris Van Orden and I are pretty pleased to be involved with DC Beer Week again this year, this time as co-chairs with our friend Mick Nardelli along with a committee of dedicated craft beer folks from the DC area. Please save the date for August 9-16, the 7th annual DC Beer Week is going to be a great one! Please see the full press release below!
In Beer We Thirst: 7th Annual DC Beer Week Returns August 9-16, 2015
May 26, 2015 – Washington, DC – 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
More information about the 7th Annual DC Beer Week will be posted at www.dcbeerweek.net in the coming weeks. In the meantime, be sure to “Like” the DC Beer Week Facebook page (www.facebook.com/DCBeerWeek) and follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@dcbeerweek; #DCBW2015), for the latest updates.
About DC Beer Week
Local distributor Jeff Wells and chef/beer aficionado Teddy Folkman started DC Beer Week in 2008 to celebrate the small, but enthusiastic craft beer community in the Nation’s Capital. Since then, the event has grown each year, attracting thousands – from self-proclaimed beer geeks and home brewers to the casual beer drinker. In 2014 the event included over 100 different events throughout the District and surrounding area.
