With the change in seasons comes seasonal beer, and four upcoming DC events are giving you the opportunity to celebrate both. Be sure to check out these great beer festivals in and around the neighborhood.

The Second LivingSocial Craft Beer & Food Truck Festival

LivingSocial is bringing back its Craft Beer & Food Truck Festival this weekend (September 29-30) from noon until 5 pm at the Half Street Fairgrounds (1299 Half Street SE). The event will feature beers from more than 50 craft breweries and food from DC’s favorite food trucks. The festival will also feature live music and interactive art installations.

A $59 ticket gets you a five-ounce sampling stein to taste your pick from each of the breweries. Food trucks will be selling food separately throughout the duration of the event. Tickets and information are available on the event’s website.

City Dogs Rescue’s Barktoberfest 

City Dogs Rescue is hopping in on the seasonal beer action (yes, that was a beer pun) with a fundraiser at the Biergarten Haus (1355 H Street NE) on Wednesday, October 17 from 7 until 9 pm. A ticket ($25 in advance and $30 at the door) includes unlimited .5 liters of select draught beers and the chance to win prizes in a raffle. All of the evening’s proceeds go towards City Dogs Rescue. Tickets are available online; additional information is available on the Facebook page.

Capitol City Brewing Company’s Oktoberfest Celebration 

On Saturday, October 6, Capitol City Brewing Company will host its 13th annual Mid-Atlantic Oktoberfest Festival at The Village at Shirlington (Arlington) from noon until 7 pm. The day will feature traditional German food and beer and live music. Tickets are $25 and include a wristband, official tasting glass and ten drink tickets. The event is free for non-drinkers and children. For more information, visit the Capital City’s website.

Oktoberfest at Bar Dupont Keeps On 

Last weekend was the first of many Oktoberfest celebrations at Bar Dupont (1500 New Hampshire Avenue NW), and this weekend, the party continues. The local bar will host an Oktoberfest party on its patio (turned Biergarten) September 28-30  with live polka music, Oktoberfest-style draft brews and hearty German food.
