Washington D.C. has a rich history when it comes to craft beer and supporting local breweries, which is exactly what D.C. Beer Fest is all about.
The event will take place just this Saturday, November 4th from noon to 3 pm and 5 pm to 8 pm, which means you’ll only have one day and just a few hours to enjoy this event before you have to wait until the next Beer Fest in 2024.
The basic ticket you can purchase will get you unlimited samples from over 80 different breweries that are both local and national favorites, it will also include access to both live music performers and a dueling piano bar as well as a food truck alley to grab some grub.
If you spring from the VIP ticket you get to go on a bit of a tour of Nats Park including exclusive access to the warning track and dugouts, plus you may even be able to step into the batting cages against live pitching! Then on top of all of these fun perks of course you also get to take home some top-of-the-line event swag and merch, including a commemorative festival t-shirt celebrating the winter edition of D.C. Beer Fest 2023.
Are pets or children allowed in D.C. Beer Fest?
Sadly, this is going to be an event you’ll need to call a babysitter for because there is no entry allowed for anyone under 21. The same goes for your fur baby, there are no dogs allowed into the event, so if you need to watch your four-legged friend on Saturday you’ll need to either get a pet sitter or sit this one out.
Are there designated driver tickets or discounts for D.C. Beer Fest?
Unfortunately, no, the DC Beer Fest doesn’t offer any discounts or special ticket prices for designated drivers for this event.
Where is D.C. Beer Fest and where is parking?
Nat’s Park is 1500 South Capitol St SE, and you can park at Lot C, but the cost of parking is $25 and can only be paid by credit card. However, given that this is a drinking event, we highly suggest you play it safe and take the metro because the closest metro is the “Navy Yard” stop on the green line, which is just a block away from the venue.
If you need a little help figuring out how to get there by metro you can check out the Nat’s website here for directions.
