Update: We are pushing this back to June 11th, 2020. More importantly, Black Lives Matter.
On Thursday, June 11, 2020, the DC Brewers’ Guild (DCBG), along with co-host DCBeer.com (that’s us!), will host a virtual beer festival to salute DC area breweries, the local craft beer community and craft beer lovers far and wide. Festival participants will be invited to access into the program on the Zoom platform, which will feature live virtual tastings and tours from eight local breweries, special guests and presentations, a live raffle, and a community toast. Festival participants will have the opportunity to purchase tickets that include the beer that will be featured by the brewers during the program. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the DCBG.
Paul Dean, Executive Director of the DCBG stated, “we are excited to present this opportunity to fans of the local craft beer scene – particularly those that have supported us through these difficult past few months.” He added, “this will give craft beer lovers the opportunity to engage with their favorite local breweries, and for our brewers to update their customers on their re-opening plans, latest beer styles and brewing techniques.”
Participating breweries include: 3 Stars Brewing Company, Atlas Brew Works, Bluejacket, Caboose Brewing Company, DC Brau Brewing Company, Right Proper Brewing Company, Port City Brewing Company, and Red Bear Brewing Company.
Tickets for the Festival start at $10 for access to the program and entry to the raffle. For $25, participants will receive their choice of a mixed six-pack (12 oz.) or mixed 4 pack (16 oz.) of select DC area craft beer that will be featured during the festival. For $50, attendees will receive both sample beer packs, as well as a commemorative DCBG branded growler cooler. All festival participants will be entered into the raffle, which features several packages of merchandise, tasting and tour experiences and craft beer from local breweries.
Details about the festival, the Festival Program, list of available beers, and ticketing can be accessed through the DCBG website at www.dcbg.org.
