The Northeast neighborhood of Brentwood hosted a festival for beer and cider lovers in D.C. Oct. 27-28 to kick off the fall. Rock the Core celebrated cider, beer and the people who love the beverages.
The tickets included live entertainment and a commemorative drinking cup, cider, beer, and food trucks. This brings a variety of food, music, drinks, and fun. The food trucks included DC Slices, King St. Oyster Bar, and Crepe Love.
The festival took place at The Mills on Rhode Island Ave. Northeast, steps away from the Rhode Island Ave. metro station on the Red Line.
The website says the festival "transports the orchard to your mug with more than 100+ ciders and craft beers offered on site. The festival is a 21+ event. The choices of beverages are Bold Rock, Castle Hill, Stella Artois, and Cider Works. The festival happens yearly.
After repeated attempts for comment, Rock the Core organizers did not respond.
Attendees posted photos on social media of beer and food trucks, using the hashtag #rockthecore.
Shaponi Nalls, a Howard University student who was at the event, said, "This is so fun! I have free beer, there's a whole bunch of people, people are actually participating. This is so cool.”
