Beer lovers, take note: There are still tickets available for this Saturday’s DC Craft Beer Festival at the Washington Convention Center. The event will feature a total of 150 beers (and a few meads and ciders) from 75 American breweries, as well as educational seminars led by local beer experts.
View the full list of “spring seasonals” here, but a few highlights are Port City Brewing Company‘s Colossal 3 Heller Bock, Terrapin Beer Company‘s Hopsecutioner IPA, Victory Brewing Company‘s Dirt Wolf Double IPA, and DuClaw Brewing Company‘s Repent, a 14 percent alcohol dark Belgian-style ale.
Seminar speakers include Cambridge, Mass.-based author Tom Acitelli, Arlington-based author and historian Garrett Peck, and Neighborhood Restaurant Group beer director Greg Engert.
General admission tickets for either three-and-a-half-hour session, at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., are $49 and include unlimited 2 oz. tasting pours of beer, access to the seminars, and a souvenir tasting glass. Connoisseur lounge tickets are $95 and include an extra hour of tasting and access to an additional area with more beers and passed hors d’oeuvres. Food will be available for purchase from District 2 Bar and Grille, Jake’s American Grille, and the Ugly Mug.
