Unfortunately it’s not all good news today.
As I mentioned earlier I was out of town last week. I had hundreds of emails to sort through when I returned. Without question of all the nausea inducing crime reports I read – this is by far the worst.
Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance in reference to a kidnapping and sexual assault which occurred in the 700 block of F Street, Northwest.
On Thursday, December 29, 2011 at approximately 8:30 pm, officers assigned to the Fourth District responded to the 400 block of Farragut Street, Northwest for a sexual assault. Upon their arrival on the scene, the officers were approached by the victim who reported that she was driving in the 700 block of F Street, Northwest at approximately 7:30 pm with her 15 month old son in the back seat. While stopped in the area, a male subject entered the passenger side of the victim’s vehicle and forced her at gunpoint to drive out of the area. The victim was ordered by the assailant to park her vehicle in an unidentified area in Washington, DC. The victim was then sexually assaulted by the subject.
The suspect is described as a black male who spoke with a Southern accent. He is further described as having a medium complexion, a mustache and was wearing all dark clothing.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099 or 1-888-919-CRIME (1-888-919-2746). Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.

Mieza Blendery Open in Alexandria’s West End
Mieza Blendery, located at 109 Clermont Avenue off Eisenhower Avenue in Alexandria, was founded by Alex Lynch, a DC native, who fell in love with brewing Saison and Sour beer after college. As a home brewer he bought his first wine barrel in 2011 and has been brewing professionally ever since.
All of the beers at Mieza Blendery are blends of multiple beers that are barrel aged, fermented with a mixed culture, and seasonally dependent. While most beers are fermented with a single yeast strain, a mixed culture beer has a variety of different yeasts that provide elements of acidity, dryness, and expressive aromatics. Barrel aging supplies micro-oxidation for the organisms, tannin, or imparts flavors from its previous occupant, such as red wine, bourbon or mezcal. We make blends with local berries and stone fruit in the summer, wine grapes in the fall, and engage in spontaneous fermentation on winter nights. Due to the differences in base beer, microbes, and barrels as well as the variance of each season on the fruit, and the blender’s choices on blending day, each blend has a distinct story.
We have designed an intimate tasting room at Mieza for you to come and enjoy our beers. They are available on tap and in bottles to go. These mixed culture beers age well in the bottle. We plan to offer a membership program after this year’s fruiting season.
