Fall festival season is here, and this weekend you can bring your dog to the inaugural Pups and Pilsners outdoor beer festival in Crystal City.
On Sunday, Sept. 23 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. the dog-friendly festival will have a large beer garden with stations offering craft brews, samples of Bowser Beer, a non-alcoholic beer for dogs, and food from local restaurants.
Some of the appropriately-named breweries include Baying Hound Aleworks, Flying Dog Brewery, and Laughing Dog Brewing.
Entry is free to the festival; you have to have a ticket to get into the beer garden. Both are dog-friendly! Advanced tickets are $15.00 and available at washingtonwineacademy.org; tickets at the door are $20.00, cash only, and subject to availability.
Location is 1405 Crystal Drive in Arlington, bordering Long Bridge Park, just north of Archstone Water Park Towers.
