Many towns and states hold a beer week annually that allows for beer lovers to come together, drink new brews, compete for the best beer of the area and celebrate the freedom that beer provides us all.
With such a booming and happening city like Washington D.C., the beer week scene is bound to be spectacular and filled with some interesting brews on tap.
There is a full calendar with listings of every tap takeover, brewing event and beer specials in the city. Many breweries like Devil’s Backbone, Mad Fox Brewing Company and Bell’s will be in attendance this week. There are food and beer pairing classes being offered, showdowns for the best barrel aged beers, competitions for best home brews and much more. There was even an awesome cheese and beer pairing happening at Right Proper Brewing.
I am seriously jealous of everyone drinking and being merry in the nation’s capital! My hometown (Winchester, Va.) is just a quick Greenway trip away from D.C. so I am feeling overwhleming-ly homesick today. The pictures and tweets and beers look life changing.
