This Week in Beer: Rare Maine Brews at Meridian Pint, Bell’s Dinner at RFD, Sixpoint at The Pug & More
Here's the weekly listing of organized beer fun in and around the District. Click on any event in the D.C. Beer Events Calendar above for more details. My pick is the Oxbow Brewing night at Meridian Pint on Tuesday, which will feature two unique American farmhouse ales brewed by D.C.-to-Maine transplant Tim Adams in a renovated barn near Newcastle, Maine. Rustic! Read on for a rundown of the rest of the week. On Monday, Hank's Oyster Bar in Old Town will host Port City Brewing and War Shore Oysters, both of Alexandria, for an evening devoted to the double Virginian delights of mollusk and suds. On Tuesday, in addition to the Oxbow night at Meridian Pint, Bell's Brewery of Michigan will be the focus of a five-course dinner at RFD. Across the river in Falls Church, Public House No. 7 will be pouring a cask of Heavy Seas Black Cannon, a black, or roasted, India pale ale brewed nearby in Baltimore. On Wednesday, plan to head to Old Town Alexandria again for an Allagash beer dinner at RedRocks Pizza. On Thursday, it's back to the District for a pint night at The Pug featuring beers from Brooklyn's Sixpoint Brewing Company and a seasonal beer tasting with "Beer Activitist" Chris O'Brien at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. On Saturday, the Park Hyatt Masters of Food & Wine tour stops at D.C. to host a variety of interactive workshops, including a beer tasting with Port City Brewing Company founder Bill Butcher. Also, starting this week Smith Commons launches its Restaurant Week menu, which includes special deals on craft beer. Watch out for other suds-centered restaurants and what they will be offering.
