If you’ve ever been to Truckeroo (happening today!), you know beer and food truck fare is a great combo (and if you’ve ever chowed on a cheesesteak paired with a bottle of water in the middle of Farragut, you know mobile vendors should always be allowed to serve brews). The newest festival to hit the Half and M Street Fairgrounds: Funky Fresh Foodie Fest on August 25.

The lineup includes ten vendors—among them Pepe, Takorean, and BBQ Bus—all dishing up fare paired with specific beers from breweries such as Starr Hill, Shock Top, and Devil's Backbone. Wonky Promotions vice president of events Josh Kriger tell us chef Teddy Folkman just joined the party, and is contributing heaps of mussels from his Granville Moore’s kitchen. Folkman says he’ll be experimenting with a combination that’s not currently on the gastropub’s menu: steamed moules in a cream-spiked salsa verde—dubbed “creme verde”—served alongside house-brined pork belly that’s been smoked with chilies for more than 16 hours. Pescetarians can get the special sans swine.

Tickets for the event ($10 general admission, $52 to $75 all-inclusive) are on sale now through Ticketfly. Included in the price of purchase are live bands, a chance to vote in the first-ever DC Karaoke Invitational, and the big reveal of who won the Trucky Awards this year.
