Last night marked the return of Tuppers’ Hop Pocket to Washington, DC after a two and a half year absence. Wednesday’s tapping at The Brickskeller had a steady stream of people seeking a taste of this local hero. Bob & Ellie Tupper were on hand, as well as representatives from the St. George Brewing Company in Hampton, VA where the Tuppers’ recipe is now brewed, bottled and kegged.

There are a few more events where you can try, or re-introduce yourself to the Tuppers’ creation:
