Charm City Meadworks at Drink the District’s Beer Fest (Photo by Mickey McCarter)
Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder, goes the famous T-shirt slogan, and it was a beautiful day indeed at Storey Park for the 5th Annual Beer Fest by Drink the District.
Hundreds upon hundreds of attendees enjoyed samples of more than 100 beers, ciders, meads, and more, as the overcast weather made it a simply fabulous time to be outdoors. If I have to stand without cover in Storey Park for an afternoon, I couldn’t have asked for better than the warm but cloudy day we experienced on Saturday.

Oh sweltering and nasty heat, how do we defeat you?
Not possible. But you can knock it down a few pegs, at least for a few hours, by drinking lots of cold, refreshing beer.
Not soon enough, the 5th annual Beer Fest comes to NoMa’s Storey Park on July 30th.
Aside from having the ability to drink as many beers as you want (from over 100 choices) in a four hour window, there will be games and live music and food trucks.

$35 advance ($45 doors)
With more than 30 beers and ciders on hand for you to enjoy and make merry with, it’s a no brainer not to regale yourself at one of the three Hoppy Holidays Beer Festival sessions hosted by Drink the District.
It’s indoors, at the top floor of the Ring Building in Dupont (1200 18th St NW), so no need to worry about the frosty elements. Worry instead about the frosty glass you can use to partake in as many two oz pours of delicious beer as possible over the span of three hours.
Breweries include Elysian, Devil’s Backbone, Victory, Bluepoint, Rogue, Schlafly and many more!
There will also be vendors, including food, like Rito Loco, District Doughnut and The Bacon Jams (mmmm, bacon).
Buy tickets here.
