“American Brewing History: In Your Glass and at the Smithsonian (17121-D)

In The Den @ P&P, on Wednesday, November 15, 8 p.m.


Beer and brewing have always played a central role in America’s culture and cuisine. Now, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History has a new initiative to build an archive of beer in America, with a special focus on the stories of home brewing and craft beer. What can we learn about American history through beer? How is the museum constructing its brewing archive and who will use it? Join the historian of the American Brewing History Initiative to explore the history of beer and brewing in America and discuss the Smithsonian’s work. During our conversation, we will sample four beers of particular significance to America’s recent brewing past.

Beer samples are included in registration cost. Read More


Yesterday we were stunned by the seemingly sudden closures of L’Enfant Cafe, Irish Whiskey and the 1st floor of Policy. The jaw dropping continues today.

Rachel reports:

“RFD closes suddenly as well. None of the staff seems to have been notified in advance.”

“After 15 years, 4.9 MILLION BEERS, & 30k Brick Burgers, @RFDLoveTheBeer & the Brickskeller family are closing our doors. Cheers & God Bless.”

“Tuesday, May 31 – Doors at 11 a.m.
Brewery representatives in house at 5 p.m.
Release of RAR / 3 Stars DOCO District IPA

If you’ve spent any time in Brookland Pint, you’ve seen DC’s own 3 Stars Brewing and the Eastern Shore’s RAR Brewing represented prominently on our draft list.

In honor of Savor Week, they’ve collaborated on a 7.8% IPA that promises to be big and juicy!

We’ll be showcasing six drafts from each brewery, including some new and limited releases:


3 Stars/Millstone Brandy-Lyn
8.5% Graf (Beer-Cider Hybrid) – A blend of bourbon barrel-aged cider (with wild yeast and bacteria) and brandy barrel-aged beer

3 Stars Starsky and Dutch
8.3 Imperial Chocolate Stout – Brewed with Dutch cocoa and finished with cocoa nibs from Undone Chocolate

RAR Marylan
A brewery-only, 5% blond ale hopped like an IPA with an absurd amount of Australian Galaxy

RAR House Roast
A 9.2% Imperial Coffee Cream Ale brewed with local Rise Up Coffee

Full List: Read More



From the fine folks at 3 Stars Brewing Company (6400 Chillum Place, NW):

“Heads up!!!! In case you haven’t seen all the coverage on social media, we are releasing our new Double IPA, #ultrafresh, today at the brewery. This beer is brewed with Glaxy, Topaz and Columbus hops and comes in at a nicee 8.3% abv. Big, juicy hop notes fill your nose and dance across your tongue before finishing with a well balanced bitterness. Doors will open at 4pm and there is a two 4-pack limit per customer. This is a very limited release and will likely not make it out into the market, so get yours while you can. Stay tuned for more details on upcoming releases and events including more info on next Sunday’s BBQ (5/22/16). Thanks for your support and keep drinking great local beer.”
