    It has always been the rule that you need to drink the beer where it was made. Otherwise, this turns into an errandurneering game, which it certainly is not.

    Default Beerneuring #1

    I ended up not making it to Port City this weekend, but stayed closer to home and had a couple of beers at New District.

    The Street Beer that I had first was pretty darned good. It is a jalapeno pale ale and was pretty tasty. However, it was a little lacking on the kick from the jalapenos, but NDBC does tend to brew on the conservative side.

    Since it was their second anniversary, I decided to try the Abbey Anniversary Ale. It was not terrible, but after the Street Beer I had earlier, it was a bit of a let down. I was not impressed with this supposed Belgian Dubbel and thought it lacked, well... pretty much everything. Whomp Whomp. Hopefully next time NDBC...

    #bafs2018 #beerneuring 001: Milk stout nitro @ Franklin's Brewery in Hyattsville MD during the #proteusbicycles #saturdaysocialride. It was deluxious! And better than the frozen protein bar that I had in my goretex jacket pocket!! This is a limited time batch, so hurry on over, cuz once its gone, there ain't no more!!

    I also wanted to try the Rubber Chicken Red Ale, but I chickened out cuz it was too frickin' cold outside, so I need to go back soon to get another beerneuring point!

    (Q: Does wine [or cognac] count if its consumed with the beer?)

    i finally stopped by Saints Row Brewing in Rockville today! i think they just opened about 4 months ago so they're pretty new, and the owner and bartender were both super friendly.

    is Sweaty Pineapple Pants. it's a pineapple sour and it's awesome. if you like a funky sour with pineapple, this is your guy. i also don't know how to rotate the picture so... turn your head i guess?

    i also tried two others, but my stupid phone went from 26% to dead in 15 minutes, so no pictures.

    i also tried Return of the Space Cowboy, which is an american IPA made with candied fruits and pear. honestly it tasted more like blueberries to me, but i still liked it.

    finally i got a Behind the Cape and Cowl, which was awesome. a Double Black IPA that tasted like a chocolate stout had a baby with a strong IPA.

    oh. well... sometimes when a beer loves... well, likes a beer a very much... i mean they kind of like each other sometimes, they'll come together and take their... labels off and... a stork will deliver them a baby beer that's like a mixture of them?

    Be sure to go visit their brewing vats, upstairs in the loft (visible in the fuzzy background of my beer pic), next time you visit!

    The All American IPA from Star City Brewing in Berthold CO.

    This beer, and all I have had at Star City, have been okay but not outstanding. I still go to Star City because they have great music, many bluegrass and folky acts, that are trying to break into the Lyons music scene. Planning to go there again tonight (driving) to see this act: https://www.reverbnation.com/hotfoot

    6.5% ABV | 79 IBU
    American IPA brewed with a handful of elusive USA hops: Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic and dry hopped with Citra hops. 2016 US Open Beer Championship – Silver.
