“Boundary Stone’s sixth annual barrel-aged beer competition will take place on​ Tuesday, September 10 from 6:30pm – 9pm, with VIP entry at 5:30pm.​ After five years of pitting local breweries against each other in a DC Beer Week competition to see who can create the best barrel-aged brew, the Battle of the Barrel-Aged Beer is getting an extra kick this time around by pairing each of the six participating breweries with a liquor barrel from a local distillery.

General admission tickets for the event will be $30 in advance and $35 at the door and include a ​four ounce taster of all six beers in the contest, a voting token, and a full-sized draft beer from last year’s champions 3 Stars Brewery.

From the Neighborhood Restaurant Group:

“Shelter will be one of two bars in the 12,500 SF space (the other, of course, being Show of Hands). It will have many of the key design elements that one would expect from a Greg Engert beer bar: a large number of taps (50 to be exact), a temperature-controlled system, rigorous line cleaning, and extensive glassware – all important elements that ensure the beers we’re serving taste exactly as they would if the guest were to enjoy them at the brewery from which they came. With near frenetic-rotation, Greg plans to pour close to 1,000 different beers annually on draft. Read More

From a press release:

“The seventh annual Awesome Con returns to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from Friday, April 26, to Sunday, April 28. Before then, guests can visit outstanding area restaurants and bars, including The Capital Burger, City Tap Penn Quarter, Espita Mezcaleria, Iron Horse Tap Room, Jackpot, Lost & Found, Morris American Bar, Moxy Washington, DC Downtown, and Penn Social.

Hop Bot is generously hopped with funky Citra and juicy Mosaic hops. Atlas adds wheat malt to the grain bill of the pale ale to give the beer a robust body and silky mouth feel that perfectly complements the floral and citrus flavors from two of the brewery’s favorite hops. The blend was derived to play off the iconic robot face that has become emblematic of Awesome Con since it began in 2012 and will be used on the cans and tap handles at participating locations.

“We’re so excited to partner with Awesome Con on this exclusive beer,” said Atlas Brew Works Founder & CEO Justin Cox. “Atlas can’t wait to host attendees at the brewery and for the DC community to try this stellar collaboration.” Ron Brister, Vice President of Events at LeftField Media, LLC, producer of Awesome Con, added that, “This convention has always been about the local fans of all kinds of pop culture. It seemed appropriate as we keep growing to partner with an outstanding brand like Atlas to bring some local flavor to the fans.”
