THE BREWERIES & BEERS LIST IS UPDATED REGULARLY AS WE MAKE THE FINEST SELECTIONS FOR OUR DC Craft Beer Festival SUMMER RELEASE Tasting! check back often for updates!

We work closely with our distributors and breweries on a daily basis to assemble the finest offerings at any event of this type. Occasionally, due to circumstances beyond our control, certain last minute changes and/or substitutions to our list may be necessary.

click on any brewery logO, then hover over IT to see specific beers. 

click logo again to move to the next brewery.

MORE TO COME!

PLEASE CHECK BACK PERIODICALLY AS WE UPDATE

While we do everything in our power to insure the brands and beers we post on the website are on our tasting room floor, there are times when Brewers and distributors make last minute substitutions.

We do our best to keep this to a minimum, and you can count on the the fact that we will always have amazing beer represented.

Unlike many beer festivals, The Hand Crafted Tasting Co.  pays for all of the beer served at our events. We also waive booth fees for brewers to further support craft brewers access to our events as promotional platforms. Across all of our Seasonal events we spend hundreds of thousands of dollars each year on the craft beer served at our festivals.

Music


LITZ brings together a wide array of musical influences ranging from funk, jam, reggae, soul, to electronica to amalgamate a new sound for the ears of the world. Their sound strides to sonically transport its listeners to another planet free of the stress, struggles, and tribulations of modern day life through the use of funky horn riffs, wah-wah keys, pounding bass, driving/progressive rhythms and melt your face guitar.

If you are interested in volunteering at the DC Craft Beer Festival, please reach out to our charity partner, One Brick Volunteers, for sign up information.

One Brick provides support to local non-profit and community organizations by creating a unique, social and flexible volunteer environment for those interested in making a concrete difference in the community. We enable people to get involved, have an impact and have fun, without the requirements of individual long-term commitments.

One Brick  is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that brings volunteers together to support other local non-profits by adopting an innovative twist to the volunteer experience: we create a friendly and social atmosphere around volunteering, and after each volunteer event -- which typically lasts only 3 to 4 hours -- we invite volunteers to gather at a local restaurant or café where they can get to know one another in a relaxed social setting.
