Tales and Ales was created in 2018 from a mere spark of an idea — to gather with a few friends to swap funny, inspiring, quirky or mind-changing stories. Fueled by the overwhelming generosity and just plain excitement of the DC metro community, it's quickly become a curated, reoccurring, must-attend storytelling show.


The mission is to create meaningful intersections through the power of true storytelling, with some of the region's best beer in hand. And while we're at it, we're raising money at each event for nonprofit organizations doing life-changing, story-worthy work in our community.
