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:
Solidarity Brew 2019 – Kellerbier
Controlling Interest – Golden Ale
For The Company
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.
“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.

I’d like to share with you my latest masterpiece… I call it “Porta Potties of the Sky.”
Artist Notes: October, 9 2019. Digital photography. I was walking to work this morning along I St SE when four porta potties soared majestically through the air and landed on the roof of a building under construction. Unfortunately my camera phone lens was a bit foggy and I had only a quick second to catch the spectacular event (and I was talking to my mom on the phone and had to cut her off mid-sentence–sorry mom!), so it didn’t turn out as oddly beautiful as it was in real life (I’m a huge fan of sunrises and clouds–some of the prettiest pictures I’ve taken have been of the sun rising on M St. SE in the morning and the afternoon clouds walking home from work. We do live in a beautiful city). Read More

“SAD news. Bardawg has passed away. He had a tumor pressing on his spinal cord. Leading to a fairly rapid paralysis of his back half. Hope everyone remembers the good times with Bardawg! He had a good life hanging out with all his friends (you folks) over the past 7 years! RIP.” Read More

From a press release:
“La Famosa, a tribute to the vibrant, flavorful cuisine of Puerto Rico, will open in the Navy Yard neighborhood of Washington, DC. The all-day, “fine-casual” restaurant will serve lunch and dinner alongside an extensive coffee program and full bar. The brainchild of Chef Joancarlo Parkhurst, La Famosa is a nod to the Caribbean island where he was born. Located at 1300 4th Street, SE in The Bower, the restaurant is expected to open in Spring 2020. Meaning ‘The Famous One’, La Famosa is the name of the Puerto Rican canning food company which Parkhurst’s family founded in 1921. It’s famous for Coco López, a key ingredient in the piña colada.
