American Craft Beer Week brings boozy celebration to D.C.
For the Class of 2011, this week is one of drinking and merriment. Those of legal drinking age but either not yet graduating or need a break from the hashtag-heavy events for some classier imbibing, rejoice: This week is American Craft Beer Week, and all of D.C. is getting out to celebrate.
Not to be confused with Savor Beer Week, which happens at the end of the month and is centered in D.C., ACBW is a nationwide celebration of brews from the U.S.A. that this year, for the first time, features events in all 50 states and the District. And as the capitol of this proud beer-loving nation, D.C. is putting on such an impressive schedule of events that it looks like everyone will be signing a Declaration of Beer Independence.
This year’s D.C. festival highlights after the jump!
This year’s D.C. ACBW highlights include:
- “Tales of a Two-Hearted City,” a boozy, informational session about where to get the best, hardest to find American brews in the district. Hosted at H Street’s Smith Commons tonight from 6-9 p.m.
