Welcome back to your nightly preview for SAVOR Week. Last night was a doozy. I managed to make it to a bunch of events last night, and there was a good vibe throughout. Kudos to Nahem Simon and the Jack Rose folks for thinking of something out-of-the-box and doing cigar and beer pairings. Hopefully we’ll see more of that kind of event in the future.
Tonight, Flying Dog is taking over ChurchKey’s taps. Fresh off of the Sierra Nevada tap takeover last night, all the lines are turned around and will be offering up Frederick Maryland’s own in the form of 27 drafts. Everything from the year-round to the obscure will be offered tonight. Pro-tip: get some buffalo wings while at ChurchKey, we think pretty highly of them and they’ll pair extremely well with Flying Dog’s portfolio.
Other options on the slate is a ‘Poon Fest at Bourbon AdMo. Get your mind out of the gutter, we’re talking about Harpoon. That Catamount Maple Wheat is a tasty treat, so if you’re in the area stop by. I made it to Bourbon AdMo last night where they had a Troeg’s line-up. Remember, all full pours at Bourbon AdMo this week are $5. This means that yes, Troeg’s award-winning Flying Mouflan barleywine was just $5 for a full pour. Tonight’s deal of $5 for Catamount Wheat and Leviathan Imperial IPA is similarly devious.
Another event of note tonight is the Epic takeover at Jack Rose. Between a raffle for prizes and a bunch of beers that have never been poured in DC before (including a second collaboration with DC Brau), this will be a fun time as well. Full pours here are just $6 all week.
Check out the full listing of Tuesday night events below. Have a great time and enjoy SAVOR Week!
