THE UNION 6TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY AT CHURCHKEY

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH @ 4 PM

Join us on Wednesday, September 26th as we celebrate the 6th anniversary of our friends at Union Craft Brewing. On this night, we’ll toast their momentous milestone by tapping 10 different beers from the Baltimore brewery.

The fine folks at Union have sent us an incredible list of beers to celebrate the occasion. Headlining the list is 6 Up, a refreshing Sour Blond Ale dosed with fresh lemon and lime zest. The ultimate thirst quencher, 6 Up is tart, light-bodied and bursting with citrus magic.

THE BEER: 120+ of the world's finest breweries pouring 400 of the world's finest brews in one place for one day. Find the full brewery lineup at snallygasterdc.com.

THE FOOD: To compliment the very best beer, you need the best bites. We enlist DC's most popular and tasty food trucks and food artisans to provide a menu ranging from lobster rolls and BBQ to wood-fire pizza and haute dogs.

THE LOCATION: We've moved! With the Capitol building as our backdrop, our new home smack dab in the heart of DC on Pennsylvania Ave NW between 3rd & 6th allows us to greatly expand the footprint of Snally and will provide for quicker access to all of the delicious offerings - along with more seating, shaded areas and restroom access.

THE PEOPLE: That's you! Everyone is welcome to attend Snallygaster, but you must be 21+ with a valid ID to enjoy our craft brews. Children are A-OK (under 14, and they're free!). Be sure to snag your tickets in advance to guarantee admission, but there will be limited day-of admission tickets for $15 (proceeds go to Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture), with purchase of food + beverage tickets sold separetely.

FOR THE KIDS: We're psyched to make this year's Snally even more fun for the whole family by partnering with Kalamata's Kitchen and featuring some awesome activities built to connect kids to other cultures through food adventures. When you arrive, head on over to the Kalamata's tent and let the fun begin - kiddos will get a custom Food Adventure Passport to collect stamps by trying the different food vendors at Snally + more perks.

THE WHY: Snallygaster serves as the largest annual fundraiser for Arcadia, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a more equitable and sustainable local food system in our region. By attending Snallygaster you are supporting the demonstration farm in Alexandria (where they grow food using sustainable practices and host thousands of school kids to teach them about farming & healthy foods), two mobile farmer’s markets dedicated to under-served & low-income neighborhoods, a veteran's program and so much more.

MORE INFO: We'll be adding so many details and features
in the coming months - including this year's live acts,
food trucks, a sortable beer list, the 2018 snally app,
a detailed site map, monster merch & more!
