Snallygaster: 250+ Beers and Perfomances by !!! and Brett!(!!) @ Lot H (Next to Nats Park)
Brace yourself as the third installment of DC’s monstrous beer festival descends upon The Yards on September 13, 2014! Snallygaster, named for the fearsome and toothy mythical beast said to terrorize the region at the turn of the century, is a beer festival that unleashes the most sought after selection of beers and benefits Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture. This year, in addition to returning to The Yards DC at a larger and roomier site, Snallygaster will once again reach new heights by tapping no fewer than 250 unique craft beers against a backdrop of fine foods from the area’s top toques and food trucks, music, entertainment, games, family-fun and more. This year's musical entertainment features !!! (Chk Chk Chk) and local bands/DJs. This year's food partners include Red Apron Butcher, GBD, Rappahannock River Oysters, LLC, Hill Country Barbecue Market D.C., Red Hook Lobster Pound DC, DC Empanadas, DC Slices, Takorean, Tasty Kabob, & The Big Cheese. Our beer guru Greg Engert (also known as man behind the beer programs at Bluejacket, Birch & Barley, ChurchKey, GBD, Rustico Restaurant & Bar and more) will of course be curating the beer list. Each of his nearly 250 picks will be announced as we approach the big event. Guests can expect a sea of the scarcest and most delicious ales and lagers on draft, including a growing number of breweries and brews rarely--if ever--available in the District, all sourced from from the very best local, domestic and international craft breweries. In addition, we will feature an exciting array of autumn seasonals, German style and German-inspired beers, a huge collection of cask ales, assorted barrel-aged brews, craft cans, Franconian gravity-poured/rubber-clad kegs, brand-new Bluejacket small batch releases, and even an artisanal cider garden.
