If a beer connoisseur tried a different beer every day, it would take more than 13 years to sample every beer that RFD Washington has served. Since 1957, Regional Food and Drink (RFD) has slaked thirst with more than 5,000 types of beer, totaling a staggering 25 million total glasses served—a figure that earned it a Guinness World Record, among many other awards.

The sister bar to the Brickskeller restaurant, RFD taps more than 30 beers at any given time, including a rotating selection of rare beers and handcrafted brews from breweries such as Gouden Carolus, La Chouffe, and Tröegs. It also carries more than 300 varieties of bottled beer, as well as premium liquors, single malts, and small-batch bourbons. The food menu has no choice but to revolve around beer, with dishes such as the 12-ounce strip steak in a stout marinade, and the brew burger, a half-pound Angus beef patty marinated in black lager and grilled on top of a keg.

Inside RFD, flat-screen TVs line the running boards and refrigerators line the walls, proudly showcasing the cache of microbrews and handcrafted ales. Flags and banners dangle from the rafters, signaling to families and beer aficionados that they may have finally met their malted matches.

When you hear the name "Washington Auto Show," you might expect to see some new vehicles. However, the name alone doesn't capture the scope of this massive event. At the largest expo of its kind in the Washington area, more than 700 makes and models from 42 manufacturers will fill the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, beckoning guests to take a closer peak or even take one out for a spin. Featured exotic vehicles range from the most expensive to the least expensive, giving visitors a chance to see a wide variety of cars.

In the midst of all the motors, visitors will also find celebrities, and many of them. Depending on the day, you might spot WWE superstar Randy Orton, Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson, or Washington football legends Dave Butz, Charles Taylor, and Mark Moseley. Visit on Tuesday for Military Tribute Day, and enjoy a performance by the 257th Army Band, The Band of the Nation's Capital, and a visit from Star Wars characters including Darth Vader and R2D2, presented by the American Red Cross. Throughout the week, visitors can also hangout with the Angry Birds at the family-friendly event.

Standing beneath the German flags fluttering outside with the two-story timber structure of Biergarten Haus looming overhead, one might feel transported to the streets of a small Bavarian village. Inside, the head of an elk looks down at glasses full of more than 25 German lagers and weizens that draw from one of the largest selections of German beer in the area, while warm, doughy pretzels provide what the Washingtonian describes as an "excellent drinking snack" to pair with authentic German schnitzel, sausages, and potato pancakes. Old world meets new with 16 TVs airing sporting events inside the bar, which accommodates up to 400 patrons. Each day, wood burns within the large fireplace and the outdoor fire pits, warming visitors during the fall and winter. Climb the stairs to the rooftop beer garden?one of the largest German beer gardens in DC, and lauded as one of DC?s best by the Washington Post?where tables made of repurposed barrels cluster together underneath cool-water misters. Out back, a second beer garden populated by long, rustic tables is open for year-round Oktoberfest celebrations, and groups can clink glasses to celebrate birthdays or holidays.

District 2 Bar & Grille

District 2 Bar & Grille celebrates all things athletic, with special attention paid to college and professional football. Glasses and towers of beer slake thirst, while the full spectrum of hunger levels can be squelched with house chili, fish 'n' chips, and signature DRG burgers topped with ham and honey barbecue. Themed evenings?which might include karaoke or poker?add to the entertainment.

Jake's American Grille

The "Boiler Room" inside Jake's American Grille looks like something out of a sport's fan's wildest, most buffalo wing-filled dreams. Nine televisions surround the downstairs space, where you can cheer on your team or break for pool and video games. Beer flows from the taps here as well as in the upstairs bar, where bartenders pour Miller and Blue Moon into individual glasses or beer towers for groups to dispense at their leisure.

The brews complement classic American cuisine such as steak, seafood, and burgers. And the decor is fittingly patriotic as well?Navy motifs throughout the space pay tribute to the restaurant's namesake, the owner's grandfather Edwin "Jake" Jablonski.
