DC I Snallygaster 2018

  • 6th Street & Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, D.C. (map)

Snallygaster is the district's biggest and best one-day, outdoor beer festival featuring no fewer than 400 craft beers culled from around the globe, including a veritable sea of DC debuts, autumn seasonals, a monster collection of cask ales, assorted barrel-aged brews, craft cans and more. Our seventh installment of Snallygaster is brought to you by Beer Director Greg Engert & the minds behind Birch & Barley/ChurchKey, Bluejacket, Rustico, and The Sovereign (AKA, your favorite watering holes).


Advance ticket options include:

KRAKEN GA PASS: Kraken Pass includes 1:30 PM admission
($15 Value) + 30 food & drink tickets and easy-peasy, guaranteed entry

BASILISK VIP PASS: Basilisk Pass includes 12 PM admission ($15 value & 1.5 hour early access to all beers) + 30 food & drink tickets


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 

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 MUSIC: We've got a full lineup of Snally Main Stage talent so you can keep jamming all day long: The Brau Brothers, DJ Brian Strumke, The PietastersLoud Boyz, and Rare Essence

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!
