Hitting baseballs and beer at DC Beer Fest

I attended my first DC Beer Fest at Nationals Park this weekend and the coolest things might not have even had to do with beer.

We got to go down on the field and into the first-base dugout. I never knew there are batting cages under the seats behind the dugout and, with my friend Jason and some his friends, we went in and hit some balls. I rocked every pitch, not bad considered we were already about an hour into the fest.

But back to the real reason we were there, the first stop we made was at the Silver Branch booth, which is a beer from Silver Spring that I drink often and is one of my favorites. 

Supposedly my other Washington D.C. regional favorites were there as well. But I never did see the Aslin, City State, or Other Half booths.

Samplings I had never had before but enjoyed included:

  • 450 North (slushy beers from Columbus, Indiana)
  • Magnify (the New Jersey brewery’s watermelon jolly rancher beer was my favorite of theirs)
  • Tucked Away (Manassas, Virginia)
  • Trouvaille (the Annexation of Puerto Rico IPA was probably my favorite of the whole evening)
  • Redbeard (Staunton, Virginia)
