12 Breweries / 24 Hoppy Beers / Zero Names / One Winner
Vote for your favorite beer & win prizes from participating breweries!

Scion Restaurant (Dupont Circle) and Crios Modern Mexican, in conjunction with, invite you to a one-of-a-kind event, Blind & Bitter: Hop Face-Off.

On Friday, August 16, Scion and Crios will offer 24 different hoppy, bitter beers with a twist, we won't tell you what they are. Neither the name of the beer, nor the brewery, will be listed on the menu. Guests will choose from 24 beers based solely on minimal tasting notes.

To help with the party, we invited 12 of our favorite breweries, each bringing two of their finest hoppy ales. Highlights include beers rarely seen in the market, such as Boulevard Single Wide IPA, and brand new beers, Evolution Incubator #2 and Boulevard Pop-Up IPA.

To make it more interesting, each brewery also agreed to participate in a winner-take-all contest, decided by popular vote. We're asking you, the customer, to help choose a winner by voting for your favorite beers of the night. Guests will receive prizes from participating breweries with every vote, while supplies last. The brewery with the most votes at the end of the event will receive a permanent draft line for the rest of 2013, along with ultimate bragging rights!

Guests may vote once per hour, maximum 3 votes. Representatives from participating breweries will be in attendance. Each beer will be available in both full and 4 oz. tasting portions. Reservations or tickets are not required for this event. More details will be announced at a later date.
