From our friends at Pombe...

Pombe, an innovative provider of mobile applications, announced today that it will be supporting the Winter Harvest edition of the DC Craft Beer Festival, November 22, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC. Coinciding with the event, Pombe has released version 1.8 of its mobile beer application, which builds upon its last version that enabled functionality outside of beer events and the ability to support multiple/simultaneous beer events.

The DC Craft Beer Festival is part of the Hand Crafted Beer Company’s family of craft beer events. The Winter Harvest edition of the DC Craft Beer Festival will feature 150 craft beer, ciders, and mead selections from 75 different breweries, two sessions and an educational learning center.
