Earlier this month I gave you some of the best bars to drink a beer in DC. Now I’m gonna give you some of the best places to drink a beer outside of a bar – legally. In no particular order:

1. Yards Park (at events like Snallygaster and New Belgium’s Tour de Fat etc. Navy Yard/Capitol Riverfront.)

2. Our locally brewed beer tasting rooms (DC Brau, 3 Stars, Right Proper in Brookland etc.)

3. National Portrait Gallery Pavilion (Chinatown)

4. Kennedy Center (Foggy Bottom)

5. Nats Park and RFK (just wait till next year!)

6. E Street Cinema (Penn Quarter)

7. East Potomac Golf Course Clubhouse (Hains Point)

(The Soldiers Home golf course used to have a vending machine back in the day with beer for like 2 bucks it was awesome but I’m told it’s no longer there. Still I’ll add an honorable mention for events held at the Soldiers Home like Oktoberfest when it’s not raining. Petworth)

8. Brew at the Zoo (Woodley Park)

9. Heurich House Museum (Dupont Circle)

10. Smithsonian “After Hours” Events (various)

11. Jazz in the Sculpture Garden (7th and Constitution NW)

12. Embassy parties and events (various)

13. Glen’s Garden Market (Shaw and Dupont.)

and hell if Michelin can do it, I can too:

14. Wolf Trap (Virginia Hinterland)
