Now You Can Be a Soldier in the ABV Wars

We've been covering the ongoing struggle to brew the world's strongest beer, but until now it's been a battle in a far away land that had little to do with the good people of DC. The instigator of the ABV arms race is Scotland's BrewDog, which insists on pairing its ridiculously high-alcohol creations (Tactical Nuclear [...]

OMG! Yet Another Contender in the World’s-Strongest-Beer War: Start the Future

Prepare yourself. Are you sitting down? Not even a week after BrewDog announced a 55%-ABV beer called "The End of History," Dutch brewery ‘t Koelschip (translation: "The Refrigerated Ship" but in beer terms, a vessel where spontaneous fermentation occurs) has retaliated with a ridiculously huge is-it-really-beer of its own: "Start the Future." Clocking in at [...]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

The big news from last week was not that Spike Mendelsohn again dominated readers' attention — it's apparently humanely impossible to resist the draw of a local celebrity chef — but that Budweiser's Select 55 finally fell out of the Top 5! The Beerspotter's original item had been a Top 5 performer for almost a [...]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Spike Mendelsohn's now-it's-open, now-it's-not pizzeria continued to attract readers in droves to the Y&H blog, probably because no one had any clue when the joint would actually open. It's supposed to launch today. The week was marked by some other high-trafficked items, including the latest food trucks coming to our streets this summer. Take a [...]

BrewDog Declares “The End of History”

This is officially beyond silly, and we're not just talking about the video above, which features cross-species frolicking in the woods. Scotland's BrewDog has released yet another beer qualifying as "world's strongest," and this time they are declaring the act to be the death of beer. If their 32%-ABV Tactical Nuclear Penguin and 41%-ABV Sink [...]

BrewDog Part 3: What to Expect When You’re Expecting…to Meet James Watt

This week we are doing a series on BrewDog, the renegade brewery in Fraserburgh, Scotland, that is pushing the limits of what beer can be. Part 1 had background on the brewery and what founders James Watt and Martin Dickie are out to achieve. Part 2 looked at the innovative ways the brewery presents itself [...]

BrewDog Part 2: A Couple Punk Clowns

Yesterday we posted some background on BrewDog, the Scottish brewery that is pushing boundaries and palates in the U.K. and beyond. Today's second post in this week's series looks at the way James Watt and Martin Dickie, the men behind BrewDog, are converting the masses to their way of thinking and drinking. The terms punk [...]

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 [...]

Drinking Music: What’s on Your Playlist?

Beer and music are an obvious yet overlooked combination. Y&H readers may remember the Beerspotter's listening party on NPR last summer. Brewers like James Watt and Martin Dickie of the Scottish brewery BrewDog hold beer and music pairing events and listen to specific albums every time they brew (and no, it's not all punk though [...]

BrewDog Tactical Nuclear Penguin & Sink the Bismarck! at Max’s Tonight

We were on the fence about heading up to Baltimore for the James Watt event at Max's tonight, mainly because I (Tammy) haven't put much effort into finding a partner in crime (which can be difficult on a weeknight). But that was until we got wind that the BrewDog co-founder will be bringing two of [...]
