Beer/spirits tasting
Please note: This event has already occurred.
The streets of Shirlington turn into a beery block party during this 13-year-old Oktoberfest celebration, sponsored by Capitol City Brewing Co. More than 50 breweries set up tents to pour four-ounce samples while oompah music fills the air and Shirlington restaurants dish out food. To make the most of the day, skip the popular breweries you've heard of and try the pours from D.C.-area brewpubs and regional microbreweries.
