    Beer Tasting: AnimA Beers

    Georgetown DC
When it comes to adult beverages, wine may be king in Italy, but the Italian craft beer culture is quickly catching up. Considered by many to be the fastest growing and most interesting beer market outside the United States, Italian beer is worth getting to know. And just as with wine where the focus on food pairings, Italian beers, although delicious and drinkable on their own, are brewed and intended to pair with food. At this tasting, we will focus on the AnimA brewery from Roccasparvera, a small town outside of Torino, which has won craft beer competitions all over the world. We will be tasting 4 of their signature beers, including Cleopatra (american pale ale), Dante (dark ale), Leonardo (blonde ale) and Mozart (amber ale) which will be paired with small plates from Chef Liam designed to enhance the flavor of both food and beer. This is a unique experience that beer enthusiasts are sure to enjoy, so don’t miss this opportunity and buy your tickets today!

    The Kitchen

    Georgetown, DC - VIAUMBRIA

    “Of course no Chef’s Table experience would be complete without a behind the scenes look at how the seasonal and local flavors transform from simple ingredients into spectacular dishes throughout each of your four courses. Our open floor plan allows Chef the opportunity to engage with guests and describe each dish prepared throughout the meal.”


The Via Umbria Family is absolutely dedicated to a total dining experience from start to finish! I loved the great stories about the origins of the food and wine being served as well as the social environment it creates. Warm and inviting ambiance, genuine caring service from the moment you walk in, authentic, fresh, passionately prepared food and a beautiful variety wines. Thank you, truly unforgettable!

Our wine tastings are a unique experience where through first hand tasting, you will learn about our philosophy and appreciation of Italian wine, and how it brings people together. The tastings will vary in size depending on the type and the space in which we are hosting but we strive to provide the best experience possible for our guests. Admission is $35 and will include tasting of the product you are learning to make, while additional wine or food may be purchased from the cafe or wine cellar. 

Our tastings typically begin at 7:30pm unless otherwise listed and guests are encouraged to arrive a few minutes ahead of time to allow for check-in. All guests planning to consume alcohol must have valid government-issued identification. Menus are subject to slight change due to market availability. A vegetarian option for any food paired with the tastings may be substituted upon sufficient notice.
