What to Expect
Get to know Washington, DC's thriving beer scene on these guided daytime and evening brewery tours. Chat with brewery owners and learn about the equipment used to make beer, the brewing process and, of course, what all the different kinds of beer taste like — at least 15 to 20 of them, in fact.

Meet the expert beer guide and the rest of the tour group at the Smithsonian's Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture. Learn from the guide about the beer-making process and what to expect during this inside look at four different DC- and Virginia-based breweries. This 5-hour tour is perfect for beer beginners, aficionados and home-based brewers alike. Also, find out what foods pair well with different styles of beer on either the daytime (lunch) or evening (dinner) tour.

On the daytime tour (departing at 11 am), enjoy tastings of at least 15 beers at four different breweries, with lunchtime food pairings at either Brookland Pint, an elevated gastropub serving New American dishes, craft beer and more; or Capitol City Brewing Company, a spacious brewpub with signature beers like Capitol Kolsch, plus a varied selection of pub grub.

The evening tour (departing at 5 pm), on the other hand, showcases DC's bustling nightlife and brewpub scene, combining old-school brew houses with some of the most popular microbreweries in the area. Enjoy tastings of 18 to 20 beers, with a dinner food-pairing at Capitol City Brewing Company.

Some of the breweries featured on either the daytime or evening tour could include any four of the following: Public Option, Capitol City Brewing Company, Port City Brewing Company, Bardo, DC Brau Brewing Company, District ChopHouse and Brewery or Hellbender Brewing Company.

Awesome Tour

I will just keep this short and sweet. This was an amazing tour and Tanner Holland was an amazing tour guide. He even got my wife to drink beer and she hates beer. I would do this tour again in a heart beat.
