This event is sold out.

Brewmaster and beer expert *Garrett Oliver*—whose definitive Oxford Companion to Beer was published to rave reviews last fall—returns by popular demand with a selection of “big but beautiful” beers…beers that combine brawn with true elegance and an ability to age well. Come to this annual celebration of beer and find out why, as Garrett says, “A beer isn’t beautiful just because it’s big.”

Light refreshments included, ID required.

Presented with support from RFD Washington, and with assistance from B.U.R.P (Brewers United for Real Potables).
