NoMa Beer Fest Draws Massive Crowds
The inaugural NoMa Beer Fest attracted more than 5,000 people on Saturday for local beer, great food and fun local music. The August day was cooler-than-normal, with blue skies and a great breeze. Children chalked a beautiful mural, while patrons danced to tunes by Mission South, Johnny Artis and DJ Grey Goon. The NoMa BID was surprised by the high turnout and made a mid-day beer run to purchase more kegs from DC Brau, and called in reinforcement kegs from The Brewer’s Art and Chocolate City Brewing Co. We will be better prepared to serve DC’s loyal local-beer fans with great food, brews and fun at NoMa Beer Fest next year!
We’d like to thank our sponsors: without the support of Harris Teeter, Union Kitchen, First + M, 77H Apartments, Trilogy NoMa, this event would not have been possible. Thanks to The JBG Companies for providing the site. Special thanks to the hard-working and creative brewers who make such awesome beer: DC Brau, Chocolate City Brewing Company, District Chophouse, Capital City Brewing Company, Three Stars Brewing Co., The Brewer’s Art and Right Proper Brewery (opening soon in Shaw), and our fantastic food vendors:
