The Super (Long) List: March 2010

We have fallen behind on the Super List, our series of each month's favorite beers. But we have big plans to make up for it! Out of the 65 beers we tasted in March (mostly small pours), today's post lists ten that particularly impressed. We'll soon be doing an additional post on some rare BrewDog beers we […]

This Week: Hopslam Cask at ChurchKey, Holy Moses at Black Squirrel, New York Dinner at Granville Moore’s & Flying Dog Casks Galore

This week is National Cask Ale Week in the U.K., and real ale fans all over the colonies are celebrating by drinking hand-pumped beer. If you are looking for an authentic experience (but have no plans to jump the pond) we suggest heading to Pratt Street Ale House in Baltimore. They will be pouring $5 […]

Beer Pairing Tips? Try barleydine

Mmm...hops and colors... My biggest problem with beer is that you can't have it for dinner. That is, it's perfectly acceptable with dinner, but it turns out that a physically sustainable diet requires supplementary sources of nutrition, often in the form of meals. If you, like me, face this problem every day, the blog barleydine […]

News You Can Use on a Snowy Day: H Street Six-Inch Special

I welcome the quiet; it means I can get some sleep instead of staying up to tweet round-the-clock updates on where you hopheads can get your fix. After trying a bottle […]

Is Hopslam Worth the Hype?

As the much-hyped Bell's Hopslam double IPA was set to arrive in D.C. this week, any excitement I had for drinking it was tempered by the dread of staying up 24/7 to maintain the Beerspotter Twitter feed and let all you fiending drinkers know where and when to get this limited brew. Many breweries limit […]

Another D.C. Beer Week? Yes, Please.

Update: Through some legal snafu, Brew at the Zoo will not be technically affiliated with D.C. Beer Week. All events are still on, though. For beer drinkers, this mostly means that you won't see them listed on the same poster. The Lagerheads piqued our interest earlier about a potential D.C. Beer Week in August that […]

The Year in Beer: A Bottle Cap Analysis

It's only half-way through 2009 but since Tammy is an educator, the Lagerhead household tends to operate on a school calendar. Summer break begins this week and the weather is finally starting to feel like DC in June. It seems like a good time to stop and reflect, especially when you have just run out […]
