Snallygaster 2018

October 13, 2018 - 12:00pm to 6:00pm

Snallygaster is the district’s beastliest beer festival, bar none, and on October 13, the monster makes its triumphant return to DC for its seventh year as a rollicking salute to craft beer! Festival goers can expect an unbelievable array of no fewer than 350 small batch, highly sought-after brews on draft from the finest American and international producers set against a backdrop of local food trucks and two stages of live music. Check out 2017’s beer list for an idea of what 2018 has in store. 

Brought to you by the hopped up minds behind DC’s Bluejacket, Churchkey, Sovereign and more, this is far and away the biggest event of the year for beer geeks of every stripe. So get your advance passes right here, right now - and be sure to sign up for our mailing list and follow us on twitter and facebook for all the breaking news, beer list updates, and much, much more!

With the Capitol building as the backdrop, the new home of Snallygaster 2018 is smack dab in the heart of DC on Pennsylvania Ave NW between 3rd & 6th allowing for the opportunity to greatly expand the footprint of Snally and will provide for quicker access to all of the delicious offerings - along with more seating, shaded areas and restroom access. As always, driving to the event is strongly discouraged - for many reasons, not the least of which is that there truly is no parking to be had. Instead, take the metro or grab and Uber or Lyft. You’ll be glad you did.
