DC Beer Monthly Dispatch


Merry Märzen Season, everyone!

If March is anything like the first two months of 2023, it's bound to be great. We're eyeing some great beer events this month, including brewery anniversaries and Women's Month events. 

Our February beer share was our most popular to date! Endless thanks to Hellbender for hosting such a large crowd. We had an absolute blast meeting new friends and sharing a wide beer selection with our awesome craft-loving community.
