As you all remember, this Thursday, Bourbon Adams Morgan is hosting a Ladies Beer Tasting 101. And if you don’t have tickets for this already, you should definitely get them ASAP.

Now for those of you who aren’t going to make the tasting (or are, you know, male), Bourbon’s beer director wants to make sure there’s something for you, too. That’s why he’ll be doing a special tapping of Dogfish Head’s Hellhound On My Ale, their tribute to legendary bluesman Robert Johnson.

Here is the description from Dogfish:

“2011 marks the 100th birthday of Mississippi Delta bluesman Robert Johnson who, according to legend, sold his soul down at the crossroads in a midnight bargain and changed music forever. Working again with our friends at Sony Legacy (yup, the same folks we did our Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew with), Dogfish Head pays tribute to this blues legend by gettin the hellhounds off his trail and into this finely-crafted ale. Hellhound is a super-hoppy ale that hits 100 IBUs in the brewhouse, 10.0 ABV, 10.0 SRM in color, and dry-hopped with 100% centennial hops at a rate of 100 kilos per 100 barrel brew-length. Can you tell we at Dogfish are stoked for this mighty musical centennial? To accentuate and magnify the citrusy notes of the centennial hops (and as a shout out to Robert Johnsons mentor Blind Lemon Jefferson) we add dried lemon peel and flesh to the whirlpool.”

Bourbon will be giving away glassware (while supplies last!) and also playing Robert Johnson-inspired music.


Sounds like Bourbon is the place to be on Thursday night!
