From an email:

“The Oktoberfest Brewery Bicycle Tour, sponsored by Bardo Brewpub and beer garden, starts at the Metropolitan Branch Trail & Brookland-Catholic University Metro station at 1pm. Then on to DC Brau, the Arboretum and New Columbia distillery for tours and tastings. Finally, the tour will head to the Bardo beer garden at 1200 Bladensburg Road for pints, Oktoberfest beers, cornhole and a food truck.

Riders are encouraged to wear their best dirndls, lederhosen, swiss alpine hunting hats and anything else they feel indicative of Oktoberfest.

The ride (including stops) will cover 6 miles plus the Arboretum section of 2 miles. Riders will make it to Bardo by 4 p.m., with “one hour of riding and two hours of stopping”, according to grand marshal Bill Stewart.

Bardo opened in July and is, for now, an entirely outdoor brew pub. A wide selection of craft brews on draft appeal to even the snobbiest of beer geeks. Bardo is 100% dog friendly every day with 15,000 square feet in our beer garden to roam off leash and a house dog who loves to play.”
