  1. The Bruery which hails from Orange County, CA, is about to open their east coast hub in DC at Union Market at some point this month. If you haven't heard about the Bruery or their beers, they are known for making "big" barrel aged beers, wilds and sours. Although they are currently available in local stores, most of their more rare offerings never make it to the retail channel and are sold through their website/clubs. Their Reserve Society is now open for new members and will allow you to pick up your allocations at the DC location. Definitely worth checking out. Membership gives you first crack at getting your hands on their most rare beers such as Black Tuesday or Chocolate Rain. I have had the joy of drinking Chocolate Rain, it is a beast of a beer, clocking in at 19.6% abv. Although the beer is such a beast in the ABV category, it is exceptionally smooth and balanced, there is a good amount of sweetness to balance out the abv, it drinks like an 8% beer, and has so much flavor going on. I am not generally big on the liquor barrel aged big beers, but this is something special. If high abv liquor barrel aged beers is not your thing, perhaps Flimishmish is. Flimishmish is a tart blonde which is aged on apricots in oak barrels. The result is nothing short of amazing, with a refreshing natural apricot flavor coming through. It is one of those beers that I dream about.
  2. And another one bites the dust, as (formerly) locally-owned Houston craft brewery Karbach is acquired by AB-InBev. Locals are taking the news hard (myself included). Kevin Floyd from The Hay Merchant and Underbelly was out fast, announcing they would no longer carry Karbach products, and would be selling their remaining stock at a steep discount. Of the Houston brewers, Karbach has become my go-to (especially Love Street during our long, hot summer), but I imagine I'll branch out a bit more now. Bummer.
  3. While not located in Philly, or really even near Philly, Troegs is a good ending point to a day at Hershey Park, located a mere 5 minutes from the park on the same street. They have great beer (and if you are lucky they will have an interesting beer from the scratch series on tap), and really really really good food. The tasting room/dining area is impressive and big. The bar is huge. They fill growlers and crowlers of anything on tap to take home. towards the left side of the bar is the ordering for the kitchen. You place your order, they give you a pager, you find a table, get drinks and wait for the food. I had the lamb falafel, served on naan, which was really interesting, served with a harissa chutney and tahina. It was one large "falafel", which was a mixture of lamb, and perhaps chickpeas and a side of thick hand cut fresh fries. It all worked well together. My wife got the seafood roll, which was chock full of shrimp and crawfish in a light mayo sauce--think lobster roll, also served with a side of fries. The highlight of the night though was the grilled cheese, which was made with 4 types of cheese, sandwiched between two huge/thick slices of brioche, served in a bowl with tomato soup on the bottom. Cheese oozed out the edges with a caramelized crispy cheese on the cut side of the sandwich. Top the food off with a nice beer, and it is a great cap to a really fun day at the park.
  4. Astro Lab Brewing announced the brewpub will hold its grand opening this Friday, Oct. 19, 2018 from 4 p.m. to midnight at its location at 8216 Georgia Avenue: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/business/astro-lab-brewing-grand-opening-set-friday/
  5. I'm sure you know this, but others may not: Manor Hill Brewery is based right there in Ellicott City. The Marriner family also owns Victoria Gastro Pub, and will be opening another restaurant, FoodPlenty, hopefully later this year.
  6. Brewers Art's dining room a couple of weeks ago had gone downhill since the last time I went. And the service was excruciatingly slow. It was somewhat early in the evening in the dining room, and there were only two other small parties there, yet it was almost 45 minutes before the first courses arrived. Our waitress must have been going up and downstairs a whole lot - she looked frazzled. The haricot vert and tomato tartare concoction was mushy green beans and diced hothouse tomatoes. My shrimp salad would have been returned even if I'd received it the day before. I requested the lamb cassoulet off the lounge menu, which, granted is not usually done. I had to hunt for the few bits of lamb, and they were dry and tasteless. The black-eye peas weren't bad. I didn't know at the time that there had been a change in the kitchen. Maybe that's why. And if you eat in the bar or the adjacent lounge area, expect a serious amount of cigarette smoke wafting by. It's in a beautiful old townhouse, and it has got awesome home brew. I'd go just for that. And they make really good rosemary garlic fries too.
  7. Baying Hound Aleworks is a small independent nano-brewery in Rockville, Maryland. The brewery produces small batch beers and uses only the highest quality ingredients. Our beers are unpasteurized and contain no additives or preservatives. Instead of forcing carbonation, Baying Hound ales undergo a secondary fermentation and are conditioned under a controlled environment. The origin of the name "Baying Hound" is a tribute to my dearly departed bloodhound Marmalade. She was my brewing hound, always at my side and careful to clean up any spilled malt. When she died, I wanted a way for her to live on and be remembered. Tours and tastings are available on Fridays and Saturdays by appointment.
  8. Looks like they're planning a November opening for Mad Fox Brewery on W. Broad St in Falls Church. From the Washington Business Journal's Missy Frederick:
  9. Although not food (google Monk's diet), it is important to note that Flying Dog Brewery now can serve pints for consumption on site, and they have built a really nice outdoor beer garden.
  10. Good thing that Starbucks retains lots of lawyers to prevent anyone from mistaking beer for one of their products. Exit 6 Brewery and Pub responded to a cease and desist letter in the finest way possible (Humor, lots of humor and pathos, and don't forget, a check for $6).
