Back for a second year, we’re hosting the ‘Make It Funky’ Wild Beer Festival, showcasing the best local beer producers and special guest breweries from around the country to celebrate the unique and mouth-watering style of wild and sour brews.

From 12-4pm on Saturday, October 1st, craft beer fans from all over the DMV will gather to sample over 75 funky beers from 25 craft breweries (and counting). From briny goses to barnyardy brett beers, participating breweries spanning from the Mid-Atlantic to Colorado will be showing off their best rare and one-of-a-kind wild beers.

The fest is indoor/outdoor with live entertainment throughout, including funk dance band, Sound Makers Union jammin’ out in our expansive beer garden and a funky DJ set in the brewery. A special menu of festival-style fare will be available to ensure bellies are just as full as tasting glasses.
