Calling racers and couch potatoes alike! The semi-annual 1K Wine & Beer Walk is around the corner so you better start training! Pass the start line and sip your way along the race course, stopping at “Wine” and “Beer” hydration stations along the course. Sample 22 wines or 22 beers we’ll be pouring for your racing pleasure, and end at a giant dance party!
New this year: due to popular requests, we are combining the 1K Wine and Beer Walk together so folks can attend in groups and choose either wine or beer tasting option.
Join us for DC and Northern VA’s most unusual wine and beer indoor wine and beer tasting/sporting event/dance party!
How does the 1K Wine & Beer Work
Buy either a 1K Wine Passport or a 1K Beer Passport! (link for tickets below)
You will pick a heat start time from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Remember we stop serving at 6:30 PM and some earlier stations may close at 6:00 PM – watch for closing times at the various stations.
You will sample 18 different and unique wines or beer (only ONE single taste of each wine or beer depending on which Passport you purchase) – see list below. You will have a tasting passport that will be marked as you try the various wines and beers.
You will have 4 bonus tastes to try a selection of wines or beers that are keeping as a surprise. This added variety will allow you to taste four additional offerings that are different than on the tasting card.
There will be some Crystal City area Restaurants offering food tastes options on your Passport as well. A few water stations to keep you hydrated and in tip top shape. All included in your purchase.
Entire event takes place indoors in the Shops at Crystal City.
Last station will have a live DJ spinning tunes while you taste. Extra wine and beer taste tables will be in this room as well.
