For only the second time since Jones was born, Beer Geek and I went away for TWO nights. Woohoo! And we went all the way to DC, a distance of about 5 miles LOL.
Each brewer had brought 2 beers for a total of 12 beers to taste. As per usual, they’d brought some unusual and/or hard to find beers. I finally got to taste the Fritz and Ken’s Ale and OMG it was every bit as good as Jamoosh said. The beers were all quite good and the brewers were as entertaining as usual (Greg Koch amused us with a word for word rendition of his quite wordy Arrogant Bastard label.)
You might, however, notice the sheen of sweat we are all wearing and the fact that my hair is pretty much plastered to my head. I’m not sure what the issue was, but the air conditioning was not sufficient for the number of people in attendance. The combination of beer and heat seriously dehydrated me. In fact, when we headed back to the hotel, I ended up drinking a glass of nuun (and probably should have had more.)
Saturday morning, we got up and went to the International Spy Museum, the American Art Museum, and the Petersen House (where President Lincoln died). Unfortunately, Ford’s Theatre was closed this weekend. After playing tourists in our own town, we headed to Gordon Biersch for lunch.
