The DC Beerathon is a citywide bar crawl in which 26 bars each pour a different beer. You pay $65 to sample as many beers at as many bars as you want from noon until 3 a.m. Some of the beer-and-bar combinations work well (Devils Backbone at Nellie's, Allagash White at the Reef, Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout at Science Club). Some are less appealing (Heineken at Buffalo Billiards, Peroni at Darlington House, Blue Moon at Ben's Next Door). Our advice, if you're taking on this challenge: Check out the map, pick the beers you want to try and go to those bars so you don't find yourself sipping Sol at Alero.
