Named for the fearsome and toothy mythical beast said to terrorize the DC region at the turn of the century, Snallygaster returns to DC for its sixth installment as a rollicking celebration of craft beer, fine food, music and more. For one day and one day only, we’ll simultaneously unleash no fewer than 350 incomparable craft beers and ciders, and feature the best of the best in food trucks, music, entertainment and family fun. If you have joined us at Snallygaster in years past, then you should know we plan to go bigger and better for this year’s party at The Yards. If you have yet to attend what Washington City Paper readers have deemed “The Best Beer Festival in DC” in 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016, then just know we are not like the other guys. Every selection is hand-picked by Beer Director Greg Engert to represent the most outrageously delicious selections possible. Specifics will be unveiled along the way (join the mailing list and follow @SnallygasterDC on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the latest) but you can expect an enormous array of seasonal selections such as Oktoberfests, fresh-hop harvest brews, pumpkin ales, plus authentic cask ales, an ever-growing list of crazy scarce drafts from across the USA and abroad (so many of which will make their DC debut right here, and only here), locally brewed beers from renowned breweries in our region and much more. And new to the line-up this year - a stellar wine garden for all of our vinously inclined friends.
