Folks, last night was a doozy. No if’s, and’s, or but’s about it, there was a tremendous line-up of DC Beer Week events. From the amazing performance that Stone and Flying Dog put on at the Big Hunt to the Capitol Lounge serving BBQ and Great Lakes that knocked everyone’s socks off, this morning there is a collective glow and reaching for aspirin across the city. Well, DC, get right back on that beer bike and start riding because there’s another amazing line-up of events tonight!
