Celebrate Oktoberfest with a walking tour of Alexandria’s Historic Breweries. Brewing in the DC area began in 1770 with the arrival of Edinburgh-born Andrew Wales. The city was also home to the Robert Portner Brewing Company’s massive Tivoli Brewery. The tour explores alleyways, repurposed buildings, historic taverns, brewing artifacts in the Alexandria Archaeology Museum, a 1793 ice well, and, of course, Alexandria’s magnificent colonial-era architecture. $28 per person. The tour is from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. To purchase a ticket, click here.
