Beer of the Series: Giants @ Washington DC

101_2451

First, a semi-related tidbit. via WaPo:

In the days after Harper’s quote, Denver Beer Co. brewed a small, special batch of Canadian lager, and named it, "Clown Question Bro." They tapped the first keg Monday afternoon, in time for the Nationals’ arrival in Colorado.

Harper learned from local news reports about the killing of Officer Celena Hollis, a veteran policewoman who was raising a 12-year-old daughter on her own. Harper had recommended Denver Beer Company donate a chunk of the proceeds to a memorial fund that will support Hollis’s daughter.

I've been swamped this week, so this'll be a bit of a short one. Which works out, because I know fuckall about Washington DC so nothing of value was lost.

Thankfully, I know a few people who've gone somewhat regularly, so I know- now that Brickskeller is but a memory- that Churchkey is the beer bar of record for The Washington DC metropolitan area. (No relation to the Churchkey in North Beach.)

Their draught menu is unfortunately borked, but the bottle list resembles the one in that Bud Light commercial where the dudebros walk onto a beer bar and smugly order Bud Light and don't get laughed at by the bartender (which is how that shit works at Toronado). There're also five casks, which is a rarity. I mean good god; last month they hosted a Sierra Nevada night and had fifty-five Sierra Nevada beers on tap (and yes, they do make that many). As much as I hate to say it, from everything I hear from my far more traveled and knowledgeable friends, Churchkey blows away anything we have in the Bay Area. I don't feel too bad, since we MAKE all the good beer around here. :)

They also have what may be the best "Directions" tab of any bar site I've ever seen: Click "Location" and then click the subway stops to the left of the map. The good folks at Beer By BART would be proud.
