    Default jrenaut #18: The Public Option

    I had a Winter Special, which was a little spiced but not overwhelming. And also an IPA #7, which is fine. And then the wife and I split an Oat Pale. I love The Public Option. It's one of my favorite places in the city. It was busy today - almost too busy. But happy to see them successful.

    Beerneuring #6 Portner's Brewhouse

    Keeping to my goal of beerneuring at breweries I have not visited before. I headed out too late to want to make the jaunt to Forge/FairWinds. so figured this was a good day to visit Portners. Handy bike parking in front.

    I ordered a flight - three pre-prohibition recipe beers (they were out of the Vienna Lager, so the Tivoli Cream Ale, the Hofbrau Pilsener, and the Porter. To round out the flight the St Asaph's Tripel.

    The best was the Pilsener, which is made with corn and rice adjuncts, but as a pre-Prohibiton style (classic American Pilsener?) was tastier and hoppier than a macro lager (but quite different from the typical craft pilsener) I didn't like the Cream Ale much, not my style, and the porter and tripel were serviceable examples of the styles (the porter more than the tripel) though not the best of the style I've ever had, by far. Nice enough atmosphere. this could be a spot for a happy hour maybe?

    Beerneuring #6 - Isley Brewing in Scott's Addition, RVA

    I had a taste of their Mos Eisley Brown Ale and their The Bribe Oatmeal Stout and settled for a half pour of their Ruby Red Slippers Grapefruit Pale Ale (twice as strong as a grapefruit radler). Yep, they all tasted like beer.

    Beerneuring #7, just a couple blocks further on as Väsen Brewing. I had a taste of their Highlander Abbey, a Trappest style ale and a half-pour of their Whiskey Walrus stout. Yep, tasted like beer.

    Beerneuring #9, backtracking a little to Castleburg Brewery and Taproom where I enjoyed their Castleburg Cream Ale which also tasted like beer.

    Beerneuring #10 and final one for today was Hardywood Park Craft Brewery where I had their Baltic Sunrise Coffee Porter. Yes, still tasting like beer. Their are two more breweries in Scott's addition I may try tomorrow before heading back to Arlington.

    Default Beerneuring #14

    I had to cut out early on Pete's gravel ride on Saturday to meet up with Dane and a realtor. So, on my way back to Leesburg, I swung by my favourite Purcellville brewery, Adroit Theory, to grab a quick beverage.

    This was the Dial In: Batch XX-06, which was a Black IPA. It was rich, malty, with a good balance of hops. Quite tasty.

    It has been a while since I had been out there and was surprised to see that they have changed their brewing patterns. It used to be that you could not find a beer there that was under 8% ABV. Now they have a ton of lighter sours and gose beers that are 3.5-5%. I am sure they are delicious, but when I go to Adroit, I want my socks knocked off.

    Looks like I still have some catching up to do!

    Default jrenaut #19: District Chophouse

    Took a long lunch with the wife and hit a couple of Ruby Tuesdays Breweries. First on the list, where we had lunch, was District Chophouse. When we walked in it looked way too fancy, but we sat at the bar. We were going to do two flights because I don't like to share but the bartender suggested we start with one, which turned out to be a good idea.

    I was pleasantly surprised by their light lager, which was crisp and flavorful and much better than I expected. Their bourbon stout was not good. The rest of the flight was solid - what you'd expect from technically proficient but unimaginative brewers, or brewers constrained by a clientele without a sophisticated beer palate (if you want to be charitable).

    Default jrenaut #what do you mean you don't brew on site: Cap City DC

    Nothing brewed on site. We had the IPA, which had notes of pepper on top of pepper. Also pepper. This is not a [expletive deleted] merlot, there is NO NEED for that much pepper.
