Oktoberfest goes to the dogs at the Second Annual Barktoberfest event, benefiting The Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL).

Enjoy the afternoon with your friends, four-legged* and otherwise, while you taste craft beers.

All event proceeds go directly to the animals and programs at the oldest anmial shelter in DC. Its core mission is to honor and strengthen the human-animal bond by providing the best quality care for homeless dogs and cats, and supporting companion animals in their homes through affordable veterinary care, community outreach, and education.
