LANDOVER, Md. – The Capital Beer Classic presented by Devil's Backbone will return to FedExField on Saturday, June 3. In its second year, this event has moved from the concourse to the field, which will include breweries around its perimeter.
Guests will enter the field through the Redskins players' tunnel and inflatable helmet on the field level. Once inside, guests will enjoy unlimited samples of new, local, and limited-release beers from more than 50 breweries, as well as live music and food trucks. Attendees will also have the opportunity to kick field goals and meet Redskins legend Clinton Portis.
"We are excited to continue to grow the Capital Beer Classic at FedExField," Redskins Senior Director Hugh Nicholson said. "As we look to build on the success of last year's inaugural event presented by Goose Island, this year's event will provide fans and beer lovers alike with exclusive access to the playing field, as well as to a wide selection of award winning regional and national craft beers. It will be a touchpoint for Redskins fans and Washingtonians to enjoy the remarkable setting offered by FedExField!"
