Craft beer event postponed due to Covid-19 concerns in DMV
Washington, D.C. ‘s Hopfest 2020 Brewing event at DC Brau Brewing Company is just around the corner. DC Brau planned to host the popular brewing event March 14 at its brewery on Bladensberg Road, but has now postponed the event and an announcement will be made later this spring. The event is designed to benefit local breweries via the DC Brewers’ Guild. General admission tickets for $50 go on sale February 1. Hopefest 2020 early bird tickets offer a 10 percent discount on the general admission price and are discontinued after January 31.
Updated: This event has been postponed to safeguard public against possible coronavirus exposure
Hopfest 2020 brings together several breweries in the DMV for a unique craft beer celebration. In addition to the beer sampling from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., organizers plan to have food trucks on the grounds for quick bites. Music and games will also be “on tap.” Plus, brewers will offer special craft brews, “hop-forward” varieties and one-off brews prepared exclusively for this event.
General admission ticket holders also receive a complimentary DC Brewers’ Guild tasting glass. Here are the breweries:
