Search Out Great Brews at the District Beer Hunt, April 28

What do The Big Hunt, Smith Commons, The Black Squirrel, Meridian Pint, Belga Cafe, Granville Moores and Smoke & Barrel have in common? If you guessed great craft beer selections, you’re on the money. More specifically, they’re just a few of the 19 bars participating in DCBeer.com’s second annual District Beer Hunt.

The brewmeisters at DCBeer.com have teamed up with Flying Dog to host this year’s event, which sees teams compete on a scavenger hunt for a special list of beers scattered around the city. For $30, groups of up to four can register to participate in the hunt, which takes place on Saturday, April 28.

Players will gather in the back room of Chinatown’s RFD on the evening on Friday, April 27 to check in and receive their list of clues. The next day, teams will fan out through the participating bars in search of as many as possible of the beers described on the sheet, buying and drinking at least one when they’ve figured it out. Many of the bars will be offering discounts to Beer Hunt participants throughout the day.

At 10 PM, all teams are due back at the Iron Horse Taproom's lower level, where checklists will be tallied and prizes awarded. To avoid the mess that can come with too much rush, prizes aren’t awarded solely on a basis of finishing first. Instead, there will be a raffle, with tickets given for speed, correctness, best team name and best costume (so get creative!).

Check out a full list of participating bars below, and then head to DCBeerHunt.com to get all the sudsy details (they've even got a slick Google map of the locales) and register your team. Space is limited, so act fast to get in on the game.
