From a press release:

“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. VIP tickets are $60 and include all of the above as well as a Brewers Meet & Greet with complimentary snacks from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, a t-shirt with original artwork and a commemorative glass.

Ed. Note: Last week UrbanTurf reported:

“For more than two years, appeals have kept the planned-unit development (PUD) in limbo. However last week, the DC Court of Appeals, in its final decision on the PUD, affirmed that while the original PUD order offered insufficient justification for several provisions of the development, the response that the Zoning Commission issued on remand adequately addressed any outstanding concerns.

Between this decision and the time extension granted earlier this year, the development team has until March 2021 to apply for building permits.
