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.

The Beauty of the Beer Variety Pack

One box, so much potential. The variety pack was my bane and my savior when I used to buy beer in my home state of Pennsylvania.

Still Drinking? Reach for a Session Beer

Yes, of course you're still drinking. Maybe not right now — or, maybe coffee right now — but today is just Day 2 of (at least) a four-day weekend, one bookended by gluttony and friends and football and friends, respectively.

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 […]
