Event Concept

Drink the District: defined

In 2011, Drink the District was born to address a serious problem in the District of Columbia; young professionals often paying way too much for a full-fledged youthful and adult fun, but getting a half-hazard, amateur experience. As a company created by young professionals, catering to young professionals, DTD is addressing this problem by innovating how entertainment is done in the District.

About the Presidents Day Edition

Party-Patriot (n.)
A cool, fun and younger individual seeking to show their patriotism through beer and fun.

At The Presidents Day Beer Festival, Party-Patriots can expect unlimited tastings of over 50 beers, in addition to unlimited full pours of two select beers, and live entertainment throughout the whole event. Party-Patriots will also have access to an array of local DC food trucks to choose from to complement their beer tastings.
Tickets are $50 at the door (save money, buy early!).

“Was way more fun than I bargained for.”

- Aimee, past attendee
