“After welcoming a sellout crowd of 2,000 local residents in its inaugural year, Oktoberfest is back by popular demand,” says Tracy Gabriel, President & Executive Director of the BID. “We are thrilled to partner with New District Brewing, which is Arlington’s only brewery, to create an even more memorable experience for all of our attendees.”
This year’s Oktoberfest will feature a selection of local beers as well as a variety of food trucks and vendors serving up traditional German fare. As a new attraction for beer enthusiasts, four local breweries will be pouring custom beers brewed specifically for the event and available only during Crystal City Oktoberfest. Each of the breweries’ most popular regularly offered beers will also be available.
“New District Brewery is proud to partner with the Crystal City BID to offer a unique beer experience for the Oktoberfest season,” says Mike Katrivanos, Co-Owner of New District Brewery. “Four local breweries including Settle Down Easy, Valor, Dynasty and New District will bring you four custom brewed German themed beers (to be announced) for your tasting pleasure!”
