There are a ton of great breweries in the DC area, but there’s only one beer festival that’s hosted by local brewers, for local brewers. Hopfest is back for the fifth year on March 9 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at DC Brau Brewing Company, and all proceeds go toward supporting the DC Brewers Guild.
Dozens of your favorite local breweries will take part in Hopfest, and your $40 admission ticket gets you access to one-of-a-kind beers and standby favorites from each of these places. When you arrive, you’ll receive a tasting glass that you can use for unlimited pours from any of these area breweries. There will be food trucks on site offering delicious fare to go along with your beer, as well as games, music and much more.
