Thursday, July 25
DC Brau Brewing Company or 3 Stars Brewing Company: Founded in 2009 -- making it the first production brewery within the capital's borders in more than 50 years -- DC Brau boasts some 40 brews and a cult following.

The District's third newest brewery, 3 Stars, debuted their first beers nearly a year ago with much praise from The Washington Post.

Friday, July 26
Fordham & Dominion Brewing Co.: These two award-winning Mid-Atlantic breweries came together and settled into Delaware back in 2007. With more than 40 years combined brewing experience they continue to produce handcrafted favorites like the Oak Barrel Stout, Double D IPA, Rams Head IPA, and Copperhead Ale.

Saturday, July 27
Evolution Craft Brewing Co.: This small-batch brewery operates out of a converted grocery store near Salisbury, tapping favorites like the Exile ESB English-style pale ale, Lot No3 IPA, Lucky 7 porter, and the Caribbean-style Rise Up stout.

Sunday, July 28
Capitol City Brewing Company: The first brewpub in DC since Prohibition, Cap City pours out four signature brews -- Capitol Kolsch, Pale Rider Ale, Amber Waves Ale, and Prohibition Porter -- and rotating seasonal brews accompanied by bar eats at their downtown and Shirlington locations.

Friday, August 2
Heavy Seas Beer: With a production brewery in Halethorpe and sales in 18 states as well as DC, Heavy Seas is growing -- and fast. The 17-year-old brewery produced more than 35,000 barrels of their flagship beer, Loose Cannon, and others just last year.

Sunday, August 4
Union Craft Brewing: Baltimore's first production brewery in more than 30 years, the year-old Union Craft operates in the city's historic Woodberry neighborhood. Their Balt Altbier won gold at Denver's Great American Beer Festival in the German Style Altbier category last year.

Wednesday, August 7
Mad Fox Brewing Company: This European-style gastropub in Falls Church -- touted as the DC area's "most award-winning brewpub" -- brews a rotating selection of cask lagers and ales on-site in German, English, Belgian, and American styles.

Thursday, August 8
DC Brau Brewing Company or Gordon Biersch with District ChopHouse & Brewery: Following the 16th-century Reinheitsgebot rules for brewing (ie, using only barley, hops, yeast, and water), Gordon Biersch has been producing German-style lagers -- including Marzen, Hefeweizen, and Blonde Bock -- at its 9th Street NW location for 13 years.

Since 1997, District ChopHouse & Brewery has been serving fresh hand-crafted beer in the setting of a '40s-era steakhouse. All of their beer is brewed on-site (except for special events and tastings).
