Craft Beer Cellar reports:

“Glorious Friday!

Craft Beer Cellar DC has received their building permit; construction begins on Monday! We can see the finish line, oh yes we can.”

Their website says:

“We are a craft beer bottle shop, whose primary focus has always been the best beer that we can get our hands on. We spend our lives in search of beers made in breweries just down the street or on the other side of the world, that are well-crafted and good examples of either their style or what we think excellent beer should be, keeping in mind that “style” is not everything. We are not snobs, we are beer geeks! We are students of our trade and take great pride in learning everything we can about beer; how it’s made, what the ingredients are, what we should drink it from, what food a beer pairs well or can be made with. We like to tinker with draft systems, tap faucets and kegs, and have been known to brew some pretty ridiculous beer, ourselves. We are your local beer bottle shop and in many states, draft bar for growler fills or in-store draft service. We are good beer, good people, and good times! (more…)
