    Default Beerneuring #7: Belly Love Brewing Company, My Bitter X, 1/21

    My ex must not be that bitter. Quite nice. It seems to me that by brewery #4, my Untappd comments are getting shorter and less descriptive. Wonder why that is?

    Default Beerneuring #8: Dog Money, Hostile Extraction, 2/12

    No grapefruit at all. Robyne says floral, but I'm not sure I'm getting that. In other Dog Money beer selections, I commented on the Red Ale, described as a "Great entry into the world of craft beer," by saying ,"I guess I'm not a novice. It was fine." The Barleywine Ale doesn't taste like 11.2%. Goes pretty well with the beer mustard and fries.

    Default Beerneuring #9: Loudoun Brewing Company, Fireplace and a Bearskin Rug, 2/12

    Not chocolatey, but malty. Got it in a snifter, because they were out of stout glasses. It's decent, would have it again.

    Default Beerneuring #10: Black Walnut Brewery, Black Lab, 2/12

    Pretty tasty. Dark roastiness. No smell of wet dog, so the name is a bit of a misnomer.

    Default Beerneuring #DOESN'T COUNT - jrenaut - Rams Head, Annapolis MD


    IMG_20170219_171757767 by Jon, on Flickr

    They definitely brewed this in-house before, but no longer. Bartender said it had been 10 years or so but I think he's a liar. It's not an unpleasant IPA, but it's not going to win any awards.

    Beerneuring #2

    Bluejacket. Washington, DC, Feb. 23.

    During the impromptu happy hour.

    Goldfinch, a belgian style ale (Not elsewhere classified)
    It was marvelously yeasty, spicy and fruity. Another great one from Bluejacket.

    Okay, so I forgot to take a photo till the beer was done. Still count? (Also people,should be wary about leaving water glasses near my feet you have been warned )

    BTW, while my stated goal was only to beerneur at breweries I had never visited before, so far my two entries are both breweries I have been to before, more than once. I hope I can remedy that this weekend.

    Default Hellbender Brewing

    I knew there was a long bike lane on Kansas Ave but never had an excuse to use it until tonight. A friend and I agreed to meet for a drink near Fort Totten Metro, and Hellbender appeared to be the closest brewery. So, after finishing work I headed up 15th and 11th Streets, and then into NE DC on Kansas. It was a pretty chill route even at rush hour.

    Hellbender is in a low-key building, tucked away at a dead-end, and hardly marked. If it hadn't been for the bike rack out front I might have missed it.

    They serve eight beers: four standing and four seasonal. Flights come in sets of four. Do the math!

    My friend and I agreed that the saison was the pick of them. Interesting, because it's not a style I'm normally drawn to. Pictured is half of a red ale, also pretty good.

    They sell bags of potato chips but otherwise there is no food -- supposedly food trucks sometimes park outside. I'm sure they wouldn't object to outside food, pizza delivery, etc. Kid friendly.

    It was criminal to spend such a nice evening at a place with no patio.

    Default jrenaut - #7 - Mad Fox (Falls Church)

    The wife and I took the day off for a little bike ride lunch date and headed out to Mad Fox.

    This is the Defender APA, which they say is hoppy and crisp. It was both of those things, though it tasted more in the direction of a pilsner than an APA.
