More on the beer garden proposed near National’s Stadium in D.C.
Andrew J. Kline, representing Robert “Bo” Blair, said at a March 25 meeting of the Alcohol Beverage Control Board that his client wants to create a “festival site with amenities” near National’s Stadium, but that “beer garden is not our term, I don’t know where that came from.”
Blair, who is on four licenses in the city, according to Kline, plans to hire private security staff, and there will be one main entrance to the festival site. There will be no cover for admittance, and there will be a separate tent where alcohol is served where staff will check IDs. Their preliminary proposal indicates a trailer will be used to lock up liquor when there’s no game.
ABRA Commissioner Nick Alberti suggested the venue also be used for family oriented events and perhaps even farmer’s markets on non-game days.
The proposal will be discussed at the April 13 ANC 6D meeting, according to JDLand.
Commissioner Donald C. Brooks said he hopes the owners, “no pun intended, knock it out of the park.”
