Neighborhood Restaurant Group Hosting 24 Events for #CBC17

This is coming from a press release, but since we know sometimes readers like to see it all in one place:

Neighborhood Restaurant Group is pleased to announce it will host an extraordinary lineup of events during the annual Craft Brewers Conference (CBC), which will take place April 10-13throughout Washington, DC. Beer Director Greg Engert has worked to procure over 300 new and distinct beers, many of which are from out-of-market brewers and have never before been poured in the District, for the 24 NRG-hosted events taking place at its 9 different restaurants and bars. 

While Birch & Barley/ChurchKey and The Sovereign will host the bulk of new beers during the conference – 110 and 72 new brews respectively – guests can expect events featuring tap takeovers, brewer meet & greets, small-batch debuts, Bluejacket Brewery collaborations, and nightly dinner pairing menus at EatBar, The Partisan, Hazel, Iron Gate, Red Apron Union Market, Red Apron Burger Bar and Bluejacket. Over 40 singular craft brewers will be featured in total.

Under Engert’s direction, the 300+ new beer tappings that week will subscribe to the fastidious standards of line cleaning and temperature control for which NRG has become known. The NRG-hosted Craft Brewers Conference event itinerary includes:
