Washington Post lists seven best beer tastings and parties that should be on everyone's calendar in July. Meanwhile, the third Capital Ale House National Beer Expo is also scheduled between July 13 and 16 at Greater Richmond Convention Center.

According to the list, people who love hops may like to spend a lot of their time at the Pizzeria Paradiso in July. Every year in July, the local restaurant puts IPAs at its three specific locations. Each location has a different lineup. Therefore, people who want Thornbridge Crackendale Varietal Citra Pale Ale or Epic's Tart 'N Juicy Sour IPA can head to DuPoint Circle, while those who wish to have Dogfish Head's 120 Minute or DC Brau's Space Reaper can go to Georgetown.

Because it is also the month of Belgian National Day, every Wednesday in July, Beglian beer bar "The Sovereign" features lambic beer post 5 p.m. in the evening. Lambic beer is one of the most sought-after drinks in the world and is spontaneously fermented by wild yeasts in Brussels. In fact, the beer bar features new, rare drinks each week.

Another beer event to attend on July 6 from 2 to 6 p.m. is in Old Town Alexandria. This event is free to attend and has eight bars that will provide discounted beers. Visitors can choose to arrive at the bars in any order, however, they would have to stop in between 2 to 3 p.m. to pick up their passport. A Port City staffer would be available to stamp the card without any purchase proof and people do not have to purchase beer at every stop they make.
