Master the perfect pour for D.C. Beer Week

Move over, baristas with your fluffy steamed-milk art. Bartenders and their draft pouring skills are taking center stage next week at D.C. Beer Week.


Over seven beer-drenched days, dozens of events will highlight "the camaraderie of craft brewing in D.C.," said co-organizer Jeff Wells. In honor of that, three local breweries, District Chophouse, Gordon Birsch and Capital City Brewing Co. are each creating a brew of the same recipe entitled Alt-Together Now.

Tonight, kick off the week at Nerd Night at Rock 'N' Roll Hotel. Check the Going Out Guide for the best of the week's events, including a five-course beer brunch. Or follow the Twitter feed below to hear the on-the-ground chatter.

If one week of the boozy beverage is not enough, head up to Boston in September to watch 16 would-be master draught'ers duke it out in the Stella Artois 2010 World Draught Master competition. The winner of the event will go on to compete in the international finals in October.

In spirit of the camaraderie of DC beer week, tell us in the comments about a favorite time you and your friends spent swilling some beer!
