    Hmm... I remember needing a light when we left, as it was just about dark. So maybe between 4 and 5? We had to have been there around the same time. Belated hi!

    Here is the route, by the way:

    Default Beernering #1: New Years Day, 10am, Capitol City, Shirlington

    I can already tell that I have no chance at winning this. But in my defense, I did start early. Cask conditioned ESB with Fuggles and Prime. Creamy head, and the perfect temperature. Mild, and a great choice for my first beerneuring.

    Default Beerneuring #2: Mad Fox January 4

    Cask Defender APA. Loving the cask conditioned ales lately. This has just a touch of the grapefruit I usually don't like but is great here. And it's got a subtle sweetness that really works. Very good choice for beerneuring # 2.

    Default Beerneuring #4

    From Denizens it was back into the city for a quick stop at 3 Stars.

    Mile 21.8 - 3 Stars - Four tasters - Peppercorn Saison, Nectar of the Bogs (Cranberry Saison), Ghost (White IPA), Courting the Squall (Oatmeal Stout) - The only one of these beers I've had before is the Ghost which is a crisp, not very hoppy white IPA. My fav was Courting the Squall which seemed fitting for the day's weather.

    Default Beerneuring #5

    By now the snow had let up and the stops were closer together. From 3 Stars it was a quick trip to Hellbender. It's like a two for one with these breweries they're so close. Hellbender filed for Chapter 11 back in November so hopefully they're able to successfully reorganize because they have a cool process that's more environmentally friendly than your typical brewery operation.

    Mile 22.7 - Hellbender - Nitro - Grompus (Smoked Nut Brown, 6.2 abv) - My favorite beer of the day. Nitro was on point and the smokeyness was nicely balanced with the nuttiness.

    That peppercorn saison is pretty awesome. Might have to make a trip this weekend.

    Default Beerneuring #6

    Continuing south we made our way to Right Proper Brookland. This is their production facility which has a nice, albeit small, tasting room. As Sunyata mentioned, they have some rad murals.

    Mile 25.5 - Right Proper Brewing Company Brookland Production House + Tasting Room (RPBCBPH+TR for short) - HÄXAN (robust porter, 7.0% abv) - Clearly I have abandoned my "sessionable IPAs" plan at this point in favor of darker, more full-bodied beers. Plus this beer just sounds badass. Lots of coffee and chocolate coming through with this one.

    Next stop, The Public Option. Last year during BAFS we were the only people in the place but this year it was packed. I was glad to see that since I think the owners and staff are pretty awesome and every beer I've tried has been very good.

    Mile 26.4 - The Public Option - Sam's Stout (6% abv) - Continuing down the dark, full-bodied beer path, this stout has a roasted maltiness with a nice creamy finish.

    The people on their pint glasses don't look very happy about having a beer!
