THE OFFICIAL DC BEER WEEK KICK OFF PARTY

Join Bluejacket on Sunday, September 8th, as we host the Official DC Beer Week Kickoff Party. On this day, we will release the official beer of DC Beer Week -- Solidarity Beer 2019!

The event starts at NOON, when all beers will be available! The Official Tapping of the Solidarity Brew Gravity Keg and Opening Ceremonies will take place at 4:30 pm!

Inspired by a shared love of German-style lagers, this year’s Solidarity Beer is a traditional Kellerbier gently hopped with Hallertau Mittelfrüh. Brewed at Bluejacket, Solidarity Beer 2019 is once again a showcase of the area’s top breweries -- including 3 Stars, Atlas, DC Brau, District ChopHouse, Gordon Biersch, Hellbender, Port City, The Public Option, Red Bear, Right Proper & Valor. 

Beginning at NOON, guests will be able to try Solidarity Beer 2019 on draft, poured from Franconian-style gravity kegs, and in 4-pack cans to go. If that wasn’t enough, we’ll also have limited edition DC Beer Week merchandise available! 

Not to be outdone, Bluejacket will also pour guest beers from 3 Stars, Atlas, DC Brau, District ChopHouse, Red Bear, Right Proper & more! 

There is no admission fee for this event. All beers will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours. Check back soon for the full lineup of guest beers.
