Celebrate Beer, Summer and the District


From Jake Dougherty: On July 28, 2012, Mount Vernon Triangle will welcome thousands of craft-beer enthusiasts to an unlimited tasting of over thirty specialty suds.  For only $30, guests can buy tickets to one of two sessions and sample a multitude of brews.  The first session runs from noon-4 PM, and the second goes from 5-9 PM.  Food trucks and exciting entertainment will be available all day. 


Drink the District taps into the millennial market, a community of young professionals that wants to drink great beer together without breaking the bank.  Event producer Jake Dougherty, 22, explains, "There are a lot of great events in the city, especially beer events, but my friends and I just couldn't afford them. So we wanted to create an event that was just as great, but affordable."


Drink the District appeals to this market's existing interest in craft beer while allowing guests to sample a wide variety, including beer enthusiasts' favorites like Flying Dog, Magic Hat, Ommegang, and New Belgium. 


"As a Mount Vernon Triangle resident, this event will be one of the first celebrations that brings our community together around everyone's favorite summer drink- an ice cold beer," explains event producer John Leader, 23. With such accessibility and variety, Drink the District is a true community event that brings together great food, friends, and drink in a celebration of summer and beer.





Drink the District will be held on July 28, 2012, at 500 New York Avenue NW in Mount Vernon Triangle. There will be two sessions from 12-4 and 5-9 PM, and guest can purchase tickets to one of the sessions online for $30 (tickets will also be available at the door for $40). Guests receive unlimited tastings of all beers; entertainment and water will be provided. 10 of DC's favorite food trucks will be on-site, but food is not included in the ticket price (sorry!).  For more information and to buy tickets, go to www.drinkthedistrict.com.
