Crystal City will be holding its popular indoor wine and beer walks again this winter.

The walks, now in their third year, combine light exercise (a one kilometer course through Crystal City’s underground shopping area) with moderate drinking (multiple wine/beer and snack stations are set up along the course).

The 1K wine walks will take place between 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Jan. 12 and 13. The 1K beer walks will take place between 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Jan. 26 and 27.

The walks will feature “dozens” of varieties of beer and wine, as provided by the Washington Wine Academy.

Registration for the wine walk is $43.50 and includes a t-shirt and 20 tasting tickets. Registration for the beer walk is $38.50 and also includes a t-shirt and 20 tasting tickets.

Tickets can be purchased online. The course begins at the section of the Crystal City Shops closest to 2200 Crystal Drive.

    Wife and I attended the 1K beer walk this past winter. Pretty good selection of beers, and lots of snacks/samples given away throughout. We are definitely considering attending again..

    waht is the beer selection like? there is no information on the website. Is it mostly USA craft / microbrewery beers or imports?

    When’s the 1k bong hit event? That’s what I want to know.

  • Alison

    Seems like a ridiculously steep price to mill about for 0.6 miles underground and taste beer.

    No wonder it’s dull – it’s straight people.

      Maybe we could try a High Heel 1K? A few drag queens with a few Chardonnays would spice it up just fine.

    I’m going to invite every homeless person I can to this event.
