Crash the Brewers’ Party Tonight at Birreria Paradiso

The night before SAVOR has traditionally (three years' worth anyway) had two big events in D.C. The Lupulin Reunulin at RFD, which is hosted at the Brickskeller this year and called ReunuLess in honor of the absence of several key Lupulin competitors, is as formal as a beer panel and tasting/roast can be with brewers like […]

Czech Republic: One Country, Two Beers

For all its storied beer history, the Czech Republic has essentially two beer styles: dark and light. It’s a spartan selection even in comparison to Germany and its Reinheitsgebot.

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 […]

My Top 5 Desert Island Beers. What Are Yours?

A sixer of Dale's to go — on your desert island I've had, and still do have, a proclivity toward lists and the ranking of favorites. High Fidelity inspires desert island-record discussions. Fantasy football drafts are a drug. And as tykes, my brother and I would sit cross-legged in the living room, surrounded by sorted mounds […]
