D.C. Beer Week brings a full week of tastings, tapping parties and beer dinners, and the first big party is the D.C. Beer Week Craft Beer Cruise on the Odyssey. At last 40 breweries are bringing their beers for unlimited sampling, including New Belgium, Unita, Allagash and Lagunitas. (The total includes 11 from D.C., Maryland and Virginia.) Tickets are $125 and include unlimited beers, a dinner buffet and a view of the D.C. monuments. (The cruise itself begins at 6.)
