THE GRIMM ARTISANAL ALES SHOWCASE

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28TH

Join us on Friday, September 28th, as we showcase the beers of Grimm Artisanal Ales. On this night, we’ll pour 9 hard-to-find beers, in bottle and draft, from the NYC brewery.

A Brooklyn-based brewery founded in 2013 by Joe and Lauren Grimm, Grimm Artisanal Ales creates a wide range of styles that epitomize the creative, experimental spirit of the American craft beer industry.

Our friends at Grimm have sent us a remarkable list for the event. Highlights include 3 versions from their superb series of dessert-inspired Berliner Weisses – Apricot Pop!, Cherry Raspberry Pop! and Citra Pop!

Not to be outdone, we’ll also pour Super Spruce, a dry-hopped Gose conditioned on spruce tips; and Cassiopeia, an Imperial Porter made with Belgian candi sugar.

There is no admission fee for this event. All Grimm beers will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.

THE BEER: 120+ of the world's finest breweries pouring 400 of the world's finest brews in one place for one day. Find the full brewery lineup at snallygasterdc.com.

THE FOOD: To compliment the very best beer, you need the best bites. We enlist DC's most popular and tasty food trucks and food artisans to provide a menu ranging from lobster rolls and BBQ to wood-fire pizza and haute dogs.

THE LOCATION: We've moved! With the Capitol building as our backdrop, our new home smack dab in the heart of DC on Pennsylvania Ave NW between 3rd & 6th allows us to greatly expand the footprint of Snally and will provide for quicker access to all of the delicious offerings - along with more seating, shaded areas and restroom access.

THE PEOPLE: That's you! Everyone is welcome to attend Snallygaster, but you must be 21+ with a valid ID to enjoy our craft brews. Children are A-OK (under 14, and they're free!). Be sure to snag your tickets in advance to guarantee admission, but there will be limited day-of admission tickets for $15 (proceeds go to Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture), with purchase of food + beverage tickets sold separetely.

FOR THE KIDS: We're psyched to make this year's Snally even more fun for the whole family by partnering with Kalamata's Kitchen and featuring some awesome activities built to connect kids to other cultures through food adventures. When you arrive, head on over to the Kalamata's tent and let the fun begin - kiddos will get a custom Food Adventure Passport to collect stamps by trying the different food vendors at Snally + more perks.

THE WHY: Snallygaster serves as the largest annual fundraiser for Arcadia, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a more equitable and sustainable local food system in our region. By attending Snallygaster you are supporting the demonstration farm in Alexandria (where they grow food using sustainable practices and host thousands of school kids to teach them about farming & healthy foods), two mobile farmer’s markets dedicated to under-served & low-income neighborhoods, a veteran's program and so much more.

MORE INFO: We'll be adding so many details and features
in the coming months - including this year's live acts,
food trucks, a sortable beer list, the 2018 snally app,
a detailed site map, monster merch & more!
