Can I buy tickets at the door?
No. All tickets are sold through our Ticketing Agent online.
Can my friend pick up my pass for me?
No. All passes must be picked up by each participant, individually. You must have a valid, government-issued ID. All participants must be 21 or over.
What do I get for signing up?
Well, funny you should ask! All of the following are included in your ticket:
- the opportunity to try 26 different beers
- all-access VIP badge
- specials on beer, food
- no cover charge at ANY venue
- event pictures
- entertainment and music along the way
Why participate if I might not be able to finish?
Because you’re an American, damn it! We accept challenges – no matter how difficult the odds. Just kidding! But seriously, you’ll have a ton of fun, whether or not you finish.
When is the event?
The Third Annual DC Beerathon is on Saturday, November 8, 2014. Check-in starts at 12:00pm and closes at 3:00pm SHARP. Early check-in is available with an Early Access ticket for registration beginning at 11:00am to beat the crowds. The DC Beerathon begins at 12:00pm.
What if I can’t make it by 3:00pm?
Check-in closes at 3:00pm SHARP. If you haven’t picked up your pass by then, you will forfeit it. Please plan accordingly.
Is it difficult to finish?
You’ll have an easier time hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro, or so we’ve been told.
How does the event work?
When you check in, you will receive an all-access VIP laminated badge. It will have the names of the participating venues printed on it. The bartenders at each venue will have hole punchers and will give you a (friendly!) punch on your badge when they serve you their designated beer. Please be kind to your bartenders and servers, who work hard to provide you with a great time!
After check in, you may proceed in any order and at any pace that you choose.
This sounds like A LOT of Beers – do I have to finish?
No. This event includes the opportunity to drink a LOT of beers! If you can’t finish, don’t; there is no prize for doing so. It’s very important to drink responsibly. Even in your college-prime, you would still have difficulty attempting this task. The point is to visit as many of the venues as possible and have a blast with your friends, not to finish each and every beer.
How much does it cost?
