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.

Speaking of fireworks, I always get lots of queries about this one as it’s starting. Good reminder from the Nationals:

“Since Nationals Park opened its gates in 2008, July 3rd fireworks have become a tradition here in the team’s Navy Yard home. Fans are invited to stay after the 6:05 p.m. game to enjoy this year’s edition of the Freedom Fireworks show!”
