The fifth annual Fairfax County Brewfest returns on Saturday, Sept. 26 with a twist year.
The event will take place at seven locations instead of a one-stop event in order to limit large gathering and follow social distancing guidelines.
The event features seven breweries in Fairfax County, including the Lake Anne Brew House in Reston.
“We designed a smart Brewfest this year. It’s scaled to be safer by spreading out locations to avoid a large crowd but still celebrating the breweries, music, and food in the area. It’s a chance to have fun and toast the craftmanship of the brewers,” said John Boylan, President & CEO, Dulles Regional Chamber of Commerce.
The event kicks off in Reston with a beer run at 9:45 a.m., followed by nitro cold brew coffee and Kombucha.
