DC Beer Week In Full Pour

beerThe 4th Annual DC Beer Week kicked off this week and runs through August 18.

What is DC Beer Week? Good question. In 2008, local beer distributor Jeff Wells and chef Teddy Folkman thought it would be fun to create an event that celebrated the growing beer community in the Nation’s Capital. They gathered their friends – local distributors, restaurants, bars and brewers – and DC Beer Week was born. Each year since its inception, DC Beer Week has grown larger with more than 180 separate events during the week long festival throughout the Federal City – from panel discussions to beer dinners and glassware giveaway happy hours to a craft beer dinner cruise on the Potomac River and more.
