Introducing: Project Extreme Brewing (a Dogfish Head + BeerAdvocate project)

The Evening Star Cafe 20th Anniversary Block Party & Bluejacket Debut!

What: Beer & Food

When: Saturday - October 21, 2017 @ 12:00PM to Saturday - October 21, 2017 @ 06:00PM

Where: Evening Star Cafe, Alexandria, Virginia
Join us Saturday, October 21st as we celebrate our 20th anniversary with an old-fashioned block party. From 12 to 6 PM, we’re shutting down the street, firing up the grill, and tapping 11 different beers from our friends at Bluejacket. This will be the very first time that Bluejacket beers will be available in Alexandria, VA, and we could not be more excited about it!

Headlining the list is The Ave., a special anniversary beer brewed in honor of this momentous milestone. Inspired by Bell’s Two Hearted Ale, one of Evening Star Cafe’s all-time favorite beers, The Ave. is a juicy, intensely aromatic IPA brewed and double-dry hopped with Centennial hops. This will be the very first time this brand new beer has been served anywhere, including at the brewery!

Not to be outdone, Executive Chef Keith Cabot will be whipping up all your backyard favorites, including pulled pork sandwiches, Red Apron hot dogs, barbecue chicken, and all the fixings!

There is no admission fee for the event, but there will be a suggested donation of $5 to benefit the George Washington Middle School in Del Ray, Alexandria. All Bluejacket drafts will be priced individually in 16 oz. pours. Food will be available for purchase a-la-carte.
