Heads up to the straggler bars and restaurants out there who want to get involved with DC Beer Week 2017 (August 20-27), there's still time to be a sponsor, but you should really get into gear.

If you're a bar or restaurant who plans to hold an event during DC Beer Week and want your event included as an official DC Beer Week event, check out this explanation of sponsorship packages and sign up as a Sponsor on their website at http://dcbeerweek.net/become-a-sponsor.

If you're planning on holding an Educational Event, let the committee know by filling out this application, and they'll provide you the benefits of a Single Event sponsorship at no cost.

If you can't hold an event, but would still like to participate, send an email and let them know what you're thinking.

FYI on timeline: While DCBW will continue to add events to their calendar right up until August 19, they strongly encourage you to submit your events by August 4, 2017, if you want to be included in the Official Guide, Untappd badge list, and other print publications.
