Saturday: At least 20 Maryland breweries and meaderies will pour their products at the Hyattsville Arts and Ales Festival, while 120 artists and artisans sell their wares. A dozen food trucks and restaurants provide the food, and six bands perform zydeco, jazz and roots rock. Tasting passes, which allow unlimited samples of all beers, cost $30 in advance and $35 at the gate. Growlers of beer will be available for purchase. The event, at Farragut and Gallatin streets in Hyattsville, runs from noon to 6 p.m., and admission is free.
