Capitol City Brewing Company's Mid-Atlantic Oktoberfest

Beer/spirits tasting
Please note: This event has already occurred.
The area's longest-running beer festival turns the streets of Shirlington into a boozy block party. Fifty breweries will be pouring four-ounce samples at their booths while local restaurants feed the masses. Arrive early, before the popular booths start running out of beer. Something to look out for this year: In addition to Oktoberfest Lager, new Cap City brewer Kristi Mathews Griner is introducing two seasonal beers: Smoketoberfest, a smoky German lager, and the pumpkin-flavored Dr. Punkinstein.
