DC Brewer’s Ball Returns With Impressive Lineup
The Brewer’s Ball will return on March 7 to the National Building Museum, showcasing DC, Maryland and Virginia spirits for a charitable cause.
This is the 11th year of the event, which is a booming fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation — and a chance for attendees to sample local beverages in a swanky setting. Organizers say that over the past decade, the event has raised $1.9 million for the foundation. The main sponsor is the matchboxfoodgroup — the organization’s partner, Drew Kim, has a niece who was born with CF.
The list of breweries is impressive, as is the list of food expected. The Metropolitan Washington, DC Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation shared with PorchDrinking.com a rough draft of the pour list.
Here are some highlights:
Adroit Theory Brewing: Ortolan Bunting, Lux, BLVCK Celebration
Boulevard Brewing Company: 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat, Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale
Flying Dog Brewery: Bloodline Blood Orange Ale, Lucky SOB Irish Red Ale
Old Ox Brewery: Alpha Ox, Black Ox, Golden Ox
Mad Fox Brewing Company: Kellerbier Kolsch, Broad Street India Pale Ale
Heritage Brewing Company: Freedom Isn’t Free; American Expedition; Coffee, Chocolate, Vanilla Kings Mountain
