The Metropolitan Beer Trail is back for its second year with new prizes, new participating locations, and even more fun! The (new!) Metropolitan Beer Trail Passport will be available starting Thursday, April 14 and can be completed on your own time and at your own pace.

DC’s Metropolitan Beer Trail links 11 of the District’s most popular brew pubs and bars. Each location is walkable or bikeable from the Metropolitan Branch Trail, which stretches from Union Station northward through the neighborhoods of NoMa, Eckington, and Brookland. From fruity to frothy, heady to hoppy, the 11 Metropolitan Beer Trail bars and breweries have the perfect brew to treat your tastes. “Hop” around to the 11 participating locations, enjoy the outdoors, and all that the Metropolitan Branch Trail has to offer.
