Sample Craft Beer

Sample craft beer from local breweries, hear live music, and explore the historic area after hours.

Beer was a favorite drink of George Washington, as it was for many people living in eighteenth-century America. 

Try Mount Vernon's New Beers

Our Mount Vernon beers, produced in collaboration with Dynasty Brewing Co., pay homage to George Washington’s love of porter. A porter brewed with Virginia-grown malt and a traditional English ale are among the beers available to sample.
