Vintage Crystal Pups & Pilsners

September 21 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

| $15.00

DC’s only dog-friendly, outdoor beer festival!

Join the Washington Wine Academy, Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, and the Crystal City BID as we celebrate all things Pups and Pilsners on Sunday, September 21st, 2014!

Dog lovers and beer lovers alike come join us for our third annual Pups & Pilsners!  As every loving dog owner knows, our pets need to be active and sniff the fresh air (and every bush within a three-mile radius). Our pups love it, we love it, so why not make a celebration out of our mutual desire to get out of the house? Come to Crystal City on Sunday September 21, 2014 from 2 PM to 6 PM to sample craft beers (humans only!) and other delicious refreshments for both you and your pup companions.

Sponsored by the Washington Wine Academy and local animal rescue organization–Homeward Trails, our pup-friendly beer garden will also have local food offerings selling tasty snacks for you to pair with your beers. The event will feature local animal rescue groups with many great dogs available for adoption as well as local pet-related businesses offering unique wares and services for your pampered pets! So if life has been a bit ruff lately, join us for a relaxing, playful, doggone good time!

Register online and get guaranteed admission.  Walk up sales for $20 cash or credit based on availability.  We have limited space so we suggest you buy in advance to ensure you are able to attend.

Each attendee will get six tasting tickets to sample (2 oz samples) of beers.  Additional tickets ($1.50)  and full beer tokens ($5.00) will be available for sale at the event as well.
