1K Beer Walk Returns For The Ale Fan Who Wants (Very Little) Exercise

Washington Wine Academy

WASHINGTON -- This one's for the person who likes bar crawls and very little exercise: the 1K Beer Walk is this weekend in Crystal City.

Participants will walk a very moderate distance -- less than a mile, for those not conversant in metric measurements, and entirely indoors -- sampling some 50 beers along the way.

People who don't enjoy hops while they walk short distances may still want to participate, as the two-day event, put on by the Washington Wine Academy, will also feature wine.

The walk begins at 2200 Crystal Drive (2200 Crystal Dr., Arlington, Va); the walking loop traverses the Shops at Crystal City, with frequent stop. Heats start on the half-hour from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m on Saturday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Buy tickets here -- and don't forget to wear reasonably comfortable shoes.
