This Saturday, October 19th, a huge craft brew event called Snallygaster is coming to nearby Union Market. From the Union Market event page:

Snallygaster, the gargantuan beer jamboree, is an epic day of inimitable imbibery and monstrous merriment featuring over 150 craft drafts. Named for the fearsome and toothy mythical beast said to terrorize the region at the turn of the century, Snallygaster returns once again to DC as a rollicking celebration of craft beer, fine food, music and more. For one day and one day only we’ll simultaneously unleash no fewer than 150 incomparable craft beers at Union Market against a backdrop featuring the area’s top toques, the best of the best food trucks, music, entertainment, family fun and games. You can expect a sea of classic Oktoberfest lagers, German style and German-inspired beers, stellar autumn seasonals, and yet another ocean of coveted international finds and unheard of rarities. Look for one-off beers brewed specifically for Snallygaster, some Bluejacket debuts, a huge collection of cask ales, assorted barrel-aged brews, and even a host of Franconian gravity-poured, rubber-clad kegs hardly ever tasted stateside.

The event will be from 1:00 – 6:00 pm. For detailed information and to buy tickets check out the Snallygaster website or Facebook page. Union Market is located at 1309 5th Street, NE.
