Starting tomorrow, Brooklyn Brewery’s Mash tour comes to DC for the second time in a year! This week-long traveling festival celebrates what’s new and exciting in food, film, comedy, music, books and beer. Throughout the week, Brooklyn Brewery will be collaborating with local chefs, artists and craft brewers to offer unique dinners, entertainment experiences, beer tastings and general fun. And the best part is: a portion of all proceeds go to Slow Food DC!
This time around, events include a farm dinner, a Slow Supper, a film festival, a night of standup comedy, a craft brewing discussion, a concert, and a number of demonstrations and tastings all around town. Brooklyn Brewery guest chefs Hiyaw Gebreyohannes and Andrew Gerson, along with others will be working throughout the week with local partners such as Georges Mill Farm, City Tap House, Atlas Brew Works, Whole Foods P Street, The Coupe, Red Rocks Bistro, E Street Cinema, and the Rock & Roll Hotel.
