Figure out which of your friends owes you a favor. Like, a BIG favor. It's time to call it in, 'cause you're gonna need a designated driver.
The World Beer Experience (yeah, that doesn't remind us of Epcot Center at all) will feature more than 40 breweries from across the world, including Flying Dog, Harpoon, Smuttynose and Magic Hat. Local breweries representin' include Vintage 50, Capital City and Sweetwater Tavern. Hit up your choice of local food vendors to coat your yummy beforehand. Our suggestion: Anything fried. Yeah, you didn't see that one coming, right?
Day-of tix are $25, or $20 for a designated drivers. Advance purchase tickets are $5 off.
Trouble calling in that favor from your friend? Grab the OnTap Magazine bus ($35) from Arlington or the Vintage 51 bus (free) from South Riding. Or if you're from especially hearty stock, plan a camping trip in Bull Run Regional Park. No DDs required!
