Young and Hungry

This Week: Schlafly at The Big Hunt, Indian Food at Little Miss Whiskey’s, BrewDog at ChurchKey & Magic Hat at The Melting Pot

Our bodies are reeling from last week's SAVOR-related mayhem. Those of you who took advantage of all the great beer in the District may want to consider putting your post-SAVOR detox plans on hold a week when you check out the rundown of this week's events. For further details on any event, click on it in the calendar.

Monday St. Louis Beer Company co-founder Dan Kopman will be at The Big Hunt for a happy hour featuring several of his award-winning Schlafly beers including Schlafly Kölsch, a 2010 World Beer Cup Gold Medal Winner. As a delicately flavored, low-ABV beer style that originated in Cologne, Germany, a Kölsch would be an excellent choice for anyone still hurting from last week's revelry. Also available will be Schlafly APA (American Pale Ale), the just-released Schlafly AIPA (American India Pale Ale), and bottles from the Schlafly Reserve series.

Tuesday at Little Miss Whiskey'sMike Farahbakhshian will be preparing curries and grilling lamb saagmalai kofta and other Indian treats. The bar has a nice bottle list (which we lauded during Snowmageddon) with several beers that will pair well with the spicy dishes. If you want to give your brain as much of a workout as your taste buds, stick around for "Big Curry Trivia" which starts at 8PM.

Wednesday you can meet BrewDog co-founder James Watt and sample his boundary-pushing beers from Scotland. On draft will be BrewDog / Stone Brewing Company collaboration Bashah, BrewDog / Mikkeller collaboration Devine Rebel, and BrewDog's Tokio, Punk IPAZeitgeist, 5AM Saint, and Dogma. On casks straight from Scotland will be Hardcore IPA, Paradox Smokehead, Paradox Isle of Arran, and Paradox Springbank. Odds are James will bring in a few big guns to share as well.

Friday, if your body is ready for it, you can treat yourself to a four-course beer pairing dinner at The Melting Pot with Magic Hat. The menu of fondue dishes prepared with Magic Hat beers includes Lucky KatMagic Hat #9Circus Boy, and Wacko.

    Does anyone else find it sad that Magic Hat, a once great local brewery, is pairing their four most widely distributed beers (and least interesting) at a chain fondue restaurant?

  • The State Theatre

    Yes, Heff, but read on to see a much better option!

    This Saturday night at the State Theatre, come celebrate Magic Hat Brewery's summer formulas..Wacko- the "liquid song of summer", Odd Notion ginger ale, Blind Faith IPA "ale of enlightenment", and, of course, the enigmatic #9. You'll get a serving of each of these to taste along with lots of delicious foods, taken right from the Magic Hat cookbook. Start off with Odd Notion Ginger chicken satay, then tuck in to the Wacko marinated salmon with Blind Faith spicy lentils and a side of Circus Boy Slaw! Then, sate your tummy with a heaping portion of delicious Peach Cobbler made with #9. All this followed by stand up comedy from some local favorites. So delicious! So easy! So fun! Yours for just $45!

    Where is the BrewDog founder going to be on Wednesday? That sounds tasty.

  • Tammy Tuck and Bruce Falconer

    Monica--Unfortunately you missed James Watt (he was in DC on June 9), but as of this weekend ChurchKey still had several BrewDog beers on draft and cask, so you can still go experience some of the tastiness.
