Pups and Pilsners: September 22nd!

DC’s only dog-friendly, outdoor beer festival is back for another year so come out to drink up and maybe save a pup!

Join the Washington Wine Academy and Homeward Trails as we celebrate all things Pups and Pilsners on Sunday, September 22nd!  Come to Crystal City from 2 pm to 6 pm to sample craft beers (humans only!) and other delicious refreshments for both you and your canine companions.  Homeward Trails and other rescues will also be on sight with homeless canines who will be more than happy to serve as your designated digger.  The pup-friendly beer garden will also have local restaurants selling tasty snacks for you to pair with your beverage of choice.

So if life has been a bit ruff lately, join us for a relaxing, playful, doggone good time!


Register online and get guaranteed admission. Tickets will be sold on the day of the event for $25 cash only based on availability. We have limited space so we suggest you buy in advance to ensure you are able to attend.  Each attendee will get six tasting tickets to sample beers (an increase from 3 last year) and token for one full beer of their choice. Additional tickets and beer tokens will be available for sale at the event as well.

NOTE: Online advance ticket registration guarantees admission, but due to the popularity and limited venue space for this event, we cannot guarantee admission to all walk-ups the day of. Order in advance to ensure a space at this exciting event for you and your puppy pals!
