  1. C&O Canal Mule-Pulled Boat Rides

    I have a memory of my grandparents taking me when I was very small. I am pretty sure it was in Georgetown, but it was certainly a long time ago. I was at Great Falls over the weekend and saw a boat in the canal, but not giving rides. I also didn't ask about rides. My almost 7 year old did complete the Billy Goat Trail, and she didn't complain, and actually said she wants to do it again.
  2. Snallygaster 2017

    For the past three years I have volunteered, which has always been a blast. I am guessing that the heat on Saturday made people stay away from the really heavy stuff. I was pouring Green Flash, and had a pretty steady line of people. They brought a Brett aged Tripple, which was awesome and kicked pretty quickly.
  3. If you like beer (and this year rose) and you are looking for something to do this Saturday, you should head to Snallygaster at the yards. You will not be disappointed. Good beer, good food (trucks), good music, good weather, and all proceeds support Arcadia, a non-profit whose mission is to create a sustainable local food system.
  4. Char-Grilled Octopus

    I think they are serving it, because if it is made properly it tastes awesome!
  5. Only thing I disagree with is that they do not put "fries" inside, they put "chips" inside.
  6. I have seen them at pretty much every Asian Supermarket in the area during the past couple of weeks.
  7. It is with a heavy heart that I read this. This is my original growing up hood. Spent many a meal there, takeout or eating there. That is my original Giant in the parking lot. Oh the memories.
  8. Hazy IPA is tough to mainstream because freshness is very important for the style.
  9. Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA

    According to their production schedule, they are making it twice a year now--April-May and November-December. They have also dramatically increased production, so it is likely much more available.
  10. Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA

    It's regularly available at the local Dogfish Head Ale House locations.
  11. Earlier this month, Flying Dog Brewery withdrew their membership in the Brewers Association. This is on the heels of the Brewers Association recent prohibition/suggestions that breweries refrain from issuing marketing that is “sexually explicit, lewd, or demeaning brand names, language, text, graphics, photos, video, or other images.” It will be interesting to see if anyone else follows suit. Prior to Flying Dog's withdrawal, I had the opportunity to ask Jim Caruso, FD's CEO what he thought about the change. He totally went off and became animated. I certainly struck a cord with my question. Jim and Flying Dog sued the Michigan Alcohol Board (and ultimately won) when Raging Bitch, their very good Belgian style IPA was banned from sale in the state.
  12. My most expensive (volume wise) beer purchase was a single bottle of Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel Calvados Edition, sourced from Connecticut Avenue Wine and Spirits. A stout brewed with Kopi Luwak (civet coffee) and aged in calvados barrels.
  13. Exciting news to report. They have opened their second location which is located in Rockville--804 Hungerford Drive, Rockville, MD 20850 (former Banner Glass location, which is slightly offset from the road), 301-417-8628. Thy Rockville location has a much larger capacity which will produce bread and pastries to be sold on premises and also service their growing commercial business. Items sold in Bethesda will still be made on site at the Bethesda location. Are third location in Georgetown is in the works also.
