“The DC beer scene has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years because of breweries (local, regional, and national), bars, restaurants, bottle shops, distributors, and, most importantly, beer fans,” says 2015 DC Beer Week co-chair Bill DeBaun. “DC Beer Week is a celebration of our local scene and a chance to continue that growth.”

As in past years, dozens of venues in the District, Virginia and Maryland will host a variety of events,including beer dinners, tastings, tap takeovers, and more. Restaurants, bars, breweries, and other venues interested in participating in this year’s DC Beer Week should contact the DC Beer Week organizers at for more information.

Brewers on the Block will take place on Sunday, August 9 at Suburbia at Union Market. The day-time event will have all the same fun as the event by the same name in 2014, but much, much bigger.

About DC Beer Week

Local distributor Jeff Wells and chef/beer aficionado Teddy Folkman started DC Beer Week in 2008 to celebrate the small, but enthusiastic craft beer community in the Nation’s Capital. Since then, the event has grown each year, attracting thousands – from self-proclaimed beer geeks and homebrewers to the causal beer drinker. In 2014, the event included over 100 different events throughout the District and surrounding area.
