Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that could shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment at the Northern Virginia BrewFest at Bull Run Regional Park on Sunday, October 20, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Surrounded by the spacious fields and woodlands of Bull Run Regional Park, Northern Virginia BrewFest summons local craft beers, food, and live entertainment beneath large party tents for an afternoon of revelry. Sampling tickets unlock the sudsy wares of more than 40 breweries, encouraging patrons to sample the fall creations of suds-slingers such as Sierra Nevada, Schlafly Brewery, and Flying Dog Brewery. Blue Ridge Kettle Korn dispenses bags of its sweet-and-salty snacks, and other local eateries offer their wares to fill stomachs and stave off cartoon bears that mistake kegs for honey pots. Arts-and-crafts exhibitors display stalls of shirts, candles, and eclectic pieces, and local and regional bands enhance the scene with catchy tunes and beer-filled trumpets.
