Now in its seventh year, DC Beer Week has grown to include over 100 separate events, with a handful of them labeled as marquee events. Numerous restaurants will also be hosting festivities in honor of DC Beer Week such as educational seminars, tastings, and dinners. DC Beer Week runs from August 9 through August 16.
