Named for the fearsome and toothy mythical beast said to terrorize the region at the turn of the century, Snallygaster, a beer festival benefiting Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture returns to Washington.

Beer Director Greg Engert, the man behind the acclaimed beer programs at Birch & Barley, ChurchKey, GBD, Rustico and more, will be curating the beer list for Snallygaster and his picks will be unveiled along the way. Guests can expect a sea of classic Oktoberfest lagers, German style and German-inspired beers, stellar autumn seasonals, as well as coveted international finds and unheard of rarities.
