Brewfest: Here again, marginally closer


Brewfest time again! They’ve moved the fall event in a little closer than Summer’s Leesburg, though not a lot: This Saturday and Sunday the event will be going on at Broad Run Park in Centerville, otherwise known as “way the hell out there by Dulles Airport.” I’m interested in going, but unfortunately the options for safe transport stink.

OnTap has an event bus running Saturday, but they’ve already sold out. Vintage 51 will run 6 buses on Saturday as well, but that only helps if you’re in South Riding. No bus options are listed for Sunday at all. Want to stay in a Comfort Suites just to be safe? There’s a $69 deal for Brewfest attendees, provided you can get yourself the 8 miles from the event to the Manassas hotel.

Your only option is to take a designated driver, who will get a $5 discount on the $25 admission fee.

I’m interested in going, but I’m a little underwhelmed by their transport & safety solutions.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
