Drink the District appeals to this market’s existing interest in craft beer while allowing guests to sample a wide variety, including beer enthusiasts’ favorites like Flying Dog, Magic Hat, Ommegang, and New Belgium.
“As a Mount Vernon Triangle resident, this event will be one of the first celebrations that brings our community together around everyone’s favorite summer drink- an ice cold beer,” explains event producer John Leader, 23. With such accessibility and variety, Drink the District is a true community event that brings together great food, friends, and drink in a celebration of summer and beer.
