National Capital Craft Beer Week

Today is my first day off for the next two weeks. It's no coincidence that it coincides with the National Capital Craft Beer Week! :) Well maybe it's a little coincidental.

In addition to attending next weekend's National Capital Beer Fest next weekend, I have managed to score invitations for two free events next week.

The first (and most recent) is The Bear 106.9 FM's "Bear's Breakfast Beer Bash" next Wednesday at The Bear's location on Merivale Rd. I somehow managed to see their posting inviting the first 200 people to respond to their event. I filled out the form, submitted and today I got the welcome email asking for RSVP. Done deal.

Local craft brewers Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company, Kichesippi Brewing Company, Sawdust City, Clocktower Brew Pubs, BigRig Brewery, and Hogs Back Brewing Company will be on site providing samples of their local craft beer.
Plus BigRig Brewery will be launching the limited edition THE BEAR’s Breakfast Brew for you to try!
The second (and first invitation) is for a Steam Whistle event on Thursday at a pub in the Byward Market. I don't know how secret this is. They put out a call for anyone interested to email them, with no mention of when or where, and a few days after I sent the email I got the invitation. Should be fun! Anything that includes beer is fun.
