August 14, 2017 0

July disappeared in the blink of an eye. Despite what back-to-school displays and the growing number of pumpkin beers on the shelf may tell you, summer is still here.

SAVOR the Second Floor

July 6, 2017 0

Last month, I attended SAVOR at the National Building Museum. Colleen, Tierney, and Chelsie all attended as well, but on Saturday.

Winter has but one month left – and even less time than that if you’re in the D.C. area. We’ve had a very mild winter, but even as the cherry blossoms prepare to bloom by St. Patrick’s Day, I still find myself craving a good winter beer. Fortunately, Starr Hill was kind enough to send two of them to myself Read More

The Thirst

February 7, 2017 0

For Valentines Day, each writer was challenged to proclaim their love to their favorite beers. These are their interpretations of the idea. We hope you enjoy! Marissa walked alone on the cobbled streets of Old Town, sighing as her shoes scratched the damp surfaces of the bricks beneath her feet.
