For the 21+ crowd, there’s D.C. Beer Week, with a slew of freebie opportunities. Tonight, be one of the first 50 people get to the Red Palace on 1210 H Street, NE, and get a free pint glass. Sam for the the Iron Horse Tap Room on 507 7th Street, NW. On Friday, there will be a free tasting of Breckenridge Brewery beers at D’Vines on 3103 14 Street, NW.
