Washington, DC


label for “86 Years is a hazy double IPA double dry-hopped with Galaxy”

Here’s one from Bluejacket (300 Tingey Street, SE): “The Navy Yard brewery will tap a brand-new double IPA for the occasion: 86 Years. A reference to how long it’s been since a Washington baseball team has made it to the World Series, 86 Years is a hazy double IPA double dry-hopped with Galaxy – it’s a juicy fruit bomb of a brew that shows intense notes of passionfruit, peach and orange, and it goes on draft Tuesday in time for Game 1. Plus, we’ll have the following food + beer specials available during watch parties for all away games:

$5 Cans
Solidarity Brew 2019 – Kellerbier
Controlling Interest – Golden Ale

$5 Drafts
Turning Road
For The Company
Object Lesson
Palace at 4am

Cheddar & Togarashi Popcorn $4
Smoky Onion Rings with curry mayo $5
Fried Chicken Bites with fermented chili aioli $7
Peel & Eat Shrimp with old bay, charred lemon aioli $12
Short Rib Nachos with beer cheese, black beans, pico de gallo, sour cream $10”

Standby for many more. With likely late hours too.

From ABRA:

“Congratulations to the Washington Nationals for sweeping the 2019 National League Championship Series and clinching their first trip to the World Series!

Back in February 2016 I officially proclaimed RAR’s Naticoke Nectar the best beer I’d been drinking. I still love it. And I still love almost everything they put out – especially their one offs. Ed. Note: Nanny O’Briens usually has the rare stuff on tap. Anyway, let’s get right to it, I don’t have a lot here but a very good source tells me that RAR Brewing has signed a lease in Navy Yard – not sure if it’s gonna be a brewpub/taproom or what not but if they are coming – this is very good news indeed! Stay tuned.

In the meantime – Navy Yard is becoming quite the beer hub with Gordon Biersch, Bardo, Bluejacket and Atlas coming too.

“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
