Is there anything better in the summer than great beer, music and games? The Capital Beer Classic presented by Goose Island is coming to FedExField, home of the Washington Redskins, on Saturday, July 30.
With unlimited beer and wine samplings of your favorite summertime ales (and probably a few you’ve never heard of before!), you won’t want to miss out!
“We are excited to launch this inaugural event at FedExField,” Redskins Senior Director Hugh Nicholson said. “The Capital Beer Classic will give guests the chance to come out and interact with many local and regional breweries and vineyards in a festival atmosphere, while integrating FedExField’s unique setting. We look forward to cementing this as an annual event, providing our fans and beer lovers alike with another opportunity to come out and have some fun.”
There will also be live music from multiple bands throughout the day on the Bud Light Party Pavilion’s ESPN 980 stage, featuring performances by DC’s own Turtle Recall and a hot new up-and-coming group straight out of Nashville with some local-DC ties, The Morrison Brothers Band. Plus festival goers will have access to some of the most popular food trucks in all of DC, serving up their original dishes for the day. Tailgating games like corn hole, beer pong and giant Jenga will also be available for everyone looking to join in on the fun!
Not only will attendees get to check out all sorts of local craft beers and wines, but Redskins fans will especially enjoy the kickoff to the upcoming football season by meeting Redskin Alums Clinton Portis, Santana Moss and the Washington Redskin Cheerleaders!
