Been feeling like you haven’t been getting enough craft beer lately? Well this week offers a number of remedies for you to wet your whistle. Check out our coverage on these events, and be sure to get out there and enjoy all of the tastiness that the DC craft beer scene will be offering this week!
First, tonight, check out the Oliver Ales Cherry Blossom Ale cask at The Big Hunt. This is an English style ale with macerated cherries added into the cask. These cherries should add a nice touch of flavor and color to Steve Jones’ always tasty beer. If this doesn’t tickle your fancy, walk down P Street to get to ChurchKey where there will be a Victory Beer Dinner and Cask Night going on.
Tomorrow night (Tuesday), tramp back over to ChurchKey for the exclusive release of Flying Dog’s In de Wildeman Farmhouse IPA. This will be a packed house, but I assure you the beer is well worth it.
On Wednesday, take a break from visiting Logan Circle, and instead head to Meridian Pint in Columbia Heights for their celebration of Baltimore beer. The beer line-up here is can’t-miss, especially since the brewers will be on-hand to talk up their beers.
Thursday night, take a little break (you’ve worked hard all week, after all, going to all of the events listed above. Sit on your couch, watch the Nationals defeat the Philthy Phillies, and crack open a session ale because…
UPDATED: Looking for something that doesn’t involve couch sitting on Thursday night? Well, the P Street Whole Foods has something great for you! They’ll be having a canned beer tasting from 7-8pm. The cost is $15, and registration is required. Here’s the description: “Canned beer is back! More and more breweries are offering their beers in cans. Why? Cans are better at keeping oxygen and sunlight out, giving you a better tasting beer, it’s like your can is a mini keg. They are better for the environment and can go places where bottles are not permitted. Pilsners and lagers aren’t the only styles to be canned: Amber Ales, Belgian Wit, Red Ales, Scotch Ales, Pale ales and different styles of Stouts and IPAs. To register email tim.hayes at wholefoods.com.”
Friday night, you’ve got the DC Brau Public Ale Launch at Meridian Pint. This is a big, big moment for the DC craft beer scene, so you’ll want to be there helping to celebrate with the DC Brau crew.
As for the weekend? Well, we’ll see what’s in store. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though, plenty to occupy you between now and then!
Have a great time, and we look forward to seeing you all at these events!
