1k “Beer Walk” in Crystal City this Weekend

Getting out for a bit of a stroll this weekend. I’ll be walking a whopping one kilometer inside the mall in Crystal City.

Going shopping at the mall doesn’t sounds like something Chris O’Brien would be doing, right? Well, I could be going to get a hearty dose of homophobic christian conservatism at Chik-Fil-A, or maybe to get tweezed at Perfect Eyebrows. Nah, not so much. But then again, they do have a place called King Street Blues, which sounded like it could be cool until I realized from their website that they don’t actually have any live blues there.

No, the truth is I’m not going there to shop. I’m going there for beer. The “1k Beer Walk” to be precise.

The Washington Wine Academy organized this stroll-and-drink event. There will be good beers being dispensed throughout the mall. Pricing is a little confusing but it looks like tickets are $35-$40 on Saturday and only $20 on Sunday, all available online in advance only. A ticket is good for 20 tasting tickets, as well as cheese and bread to keep you going (and also a t-shirt in case you need another one to stuff in your drawer).

The beer list looks decent. A few locals, Port City, DC Brau, and Flying Dog. Several national micros, such as New Belgium, Brooklyn, and Sam Adams. Some German and Belgian imports. A few faux micros like Blue Moon and Leinenkugel (both owned by SABMillerCoors). And a few throwaway beers like Pabst and Old Milwaukee — seriously?!

Put your beer walking shoes on and meet me there. I’ll be in the 2:30pm “heat” on Saturday.
