Four of the top breweries in DC have been barrel aging an ale for a minimum of one month. On Tuesday the 27th, these breweries will unveil their concoction at the Boundary Stone. There will be judges and a popular vote to calculate who will take home the trophy, as well as win a dedicated line for a year on our back bar. Admission is $20 ahead of time or $25 at the door, which will get you a 5oz tasting from each brewery, and a pint of “5-Spot”!
The breweries battling will be DC Brau Brewing Company, Atlas Brew Works, 3 Stars Brewing Company, and defending champs Port City Brewing Company.”
“The Pub & The People has just hired rising star sous chef Ben Schramm from one of DC’s top restaurants, Proof!
Schramm studied culinary arts at L’Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, MD, and launched his culinary career at Proof, rising from salad station worker to executive sous in that time, working closely under executive chef Haidar Karoum. Schramm is thrilled to join the P&P team, and has big plans for the Pub’s menu, adding inventive food while still continuing the inclusive, neighborhood atmosphere. Schramm is excited to pair his love for his own local watering hole with his passion for creativity in cooking.”

There was a long-standing Korean food cart on K St NW between 14th and Vermont. Six weeks ago it vanished and has not been seen since. I’m hopeful the owners went on a long vacation but I’m concerned they moved or closed.”
“Hi, my friend’s bike was stolen today [Thursday] outside of her office on M and 20th downtown. She just moved to DC for an unpaid internship as a graduate student and can’t afford to replace it, so I was hoping the PoP community might help and keep an eye out for it–especially if it shows up online.
Frankly, I’m shocked that someone could have gotten away with clipping a bike lock in such a high traffic area … the Golden Triangle BID should be concerned about this.”

Leaky Fire Hydrant Causing Algae Growth. The fire hydrant at 15th and U St NW has been leaking (with an out-of-order sign attached to it) for weeks. So long, in fact, that it’s causing algae to grow on the sidewalk.”
Another reader flagged this over the weekend and DC Water has replied:
“This hydrant is in the system pending repairs. Thanks guys.”
Ed. Note: DC Water is very responsive on twitter (and here) so don’t hesitate to contact them should encounter a water issue.
