From a press release:

Saturday, October 18 – 1:00 to 4:00 PM
Bardo – 1200 Bladensburg Rd, NE
No cover; $10 per barbecue plate

On October 18, 2014, the DC Homebrewers will host its third annual barbecue fundraiser at Bardo Brewpub on Bladensburg Road in Washington, DC. The annual barbecue serves as a chance for the all-volunteer club to showcase and educate its members and the public on the art of homebrewing, alternate brewing techniques, and sensory panels to help new and advanced homebrewers expand their brewing and beer knowledge.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the club’s educational programming and this year’s charity, the Common Good City Farm, an urban farm and education center located on a half-acre lot in LeDroit Park. Their mission is to grow food, educate, and help low-income DC community members meet their food needs and provide educational opportunities for all. For more information, visit here.

Admission to the event is free. A $10 food ticket includes a plate of barbecue (a vegetarian option will be available) and two sides. Some hand-crafted soda will also be available. A variety of beers by Bardo Brewpub will be available for $4. Buy tickets in advance here.

During the afternoon, DC Homebrewers members will be offering a homebrewing demonstration, a variety of educational beer talks, and a raffle. Visit dchomebrewers.com to learn more about the club and join the email list.”

  • I wonder if “alternate brewing techniques” include how to make the shit heap they serve at bardo.

    • I was pretty hard on Bardo after their first brew but they have improved a great deal since then.

      • I’ve had their Stout and it was pretty tasty. Their IPA needs some work.

        I will say for $4 a pint is a great deal. I’d rather drink a $4 work in progress than a $7 light beer any day of the week.

      • that’s actually a pretty useful comment. i hated their brews when i was last there, but if it they’ve improved i will definitely give it another go

        • Last time there I had the Dremo and the Imperial Brown Ale. I thought both were very good and great deals at $4. I can’t speak to any of the others. The Zeus IPA was so bad when they first opened I’m hesitant to go near it.

  • Imperial 7 Grain Black IPA, Dry Hopped… Yum!
    And for $20 you can try all 13. As much as you want. What’s not to like!
