Dominion still has it on draft as of now.
From this week's Norm's Beer & Wine newsletter for 20th anniversary events on Saturday, 7 April:
Founders tasting 1:00-4:00 - Katie's pouring Solid Gold, PC Pils, Breakfast Stout, and Centennial IPA...AND KBS WILL BE TAPPED ON THE GROWLER STATION @ 1pm!
They still have CBS, KBS, and westy 12 at black squirrel
KBS 4-packs at Westover. $30
Has 2018 Daylight Cravings bottles shown up in NoVA yet?
Picked some up at TW McLean this weekend. Pretty good beer for 9.99$ a four pack.
16 oz cans?
Yes. 16oz cans
The were a few 4-pks of KBS at TW in Alexandria...
Has anyone seen Waldos in the area?
I am going to check it out on Saturday. Apparently they are selling cans for $11 or so out of their Aslin van in an empty parking lot with a food truck. Cans only, no draft. Closer to the stadium than Bluejacket. Great for out-of-towners who want to try to Aslin.
I think $11 is a lot of cash for a beer. But it is right at the stadium and they are charging as much or more for domestic beers inside. It seems like quite a deal for people that do not get out to Aslin in the burbs. If I was traveling to a ballpark in the northeast and they had the same setup outside a stadium with Treehouse or Trillium or Alchemist, I would not hesitate. And there is no way around it, Aslin makes awesome beer.
$11 for a pint of Aslin in a beer garden setting doesn't sound too excessive. It's on par with the $8-9 12oz pours at bars around town. I realize it's more than $18/4, but they also have to lease the site, lease the furniture, pay for insurance, etc.
On a different note, Calvert Woodley got in some Singlecut Cold Fire that was canned two weeks ago.
Edit - I'm pretty sure they posted a menu pic on ig the other day and cans at the garden go for $8-12 depending on beer.
Has anyone here gone to the beer garden yet? Lines insufferable?
We stopped by before the game on Sunday and there were maybe a couple dozen people there. But it was also freezing out for an 8:00 game that wasn't heavily attended. We walked by after last pitch on Opening Day as well and it was much more crowded, but not at capacity. I think when this catches on there is going to be a line to get in most afternoons.
Cans were $8-11 ($11 for Starfish, the other 3 or 4 available were $8 or $9). Yeah, it's not cheap, but you're paying at least that much for swill the next block over at the Bullpen. Not a hard choice if you aren't going hit Bluejacket or Justin's before going in.
I’ve been twice, Sat and Sun, which were cold days. No line, plenty of capacity, quick service, and I think the prices were fair. You’re mere steps from the stadium and the pints are cheaper than the garbage inside. If that doesn’t float your boat, the good alternatives are BlueJacket, Salt Line, and the new All Purpose Pizza (good taps).
Hit up the Aslin beer garden before last night's game and there was hardly anyone there! I was shocked given how wonderful the weather was. There was literally no line! I'd definitely recommend the Magnify guest beers they have right now. The Peak of Righteousness was especially excellent if you're into nelson hops.
Anyone ever see Waldo's bottles in NOVA or DC? I've seen it on tap, but never saw bottles. Also, any ideas as to when Parabola will be in the area?
Plenty of Waldo's in stock here in NW DC.
Dominion posted having Waldo’s
Does Aslin post their beer garden can list anywhere?
Yes, they post it on their instagram
We have set our grand opening for Rocket Frog Brewing, in Sterling for May 19. We should have 5-8 taps and hope to see you all there.
Anyone hearing anything re. Savor week? I see the Brewers Brunch at CK and remember Jace saying the Pint was doing Fremont on the 31st. I'm hoping for some good events, especially since there hasn't been much in terms of tap takeovers recently.
I did very little looking so I'm sure there are more events, but here are some listed on Savor's "Savor Week" page. https://www.savorcraftbeer.com/key-info/week-events/
Edit: DC Beer currently doesn't have very much for Savor week either. I bet we'll hear about the events in the next 2 weeks or so.
Does anyone know if Modern Times (San Diego) is available in this area?
We see bottles of it in Northern VA more and more regularly.
We get occasional drops in DC, maybe 2-3 times per year. I'm not entirely sure what the deal is honestly. They certainly don't distribute here regularly, but it's also been several drops over the course of more than a year, so ???
Modern Times is sold here by a small distributor and appears roughly twice a year. About a month ago a drop of 4 cans came into town. I'd guess most places are out of them though it appears that you can still order all of them as well as a couple bottles from a previous drop. At this point, the IPA's would be fine but not super fresh so I don't know who'll pick them up.
Odd Provisions still has some Modern Times Ice and Lomaland left in stock. While I'm shilling, fresh Commonwealth drop today of Big Papi and Papi Chulo, should see some Singlecut DDH Full Stack on Friday, Parabola should be Thursday (I'll get full confirmation tomorrow), and whatever other goodies come my way.
I thought the standard stuff was in cans.
I’ve seen some of those as well but I almost always see bottles that’re bigger than 12 ozs. NoVA probably has the cans as well if they’re getting seasonals.
I've seen Orderville and Universal Friend (bottles). There was one other bottle I've seen. Orderville was decent, but not worth the extra $$, IMO. I haven't tried the others. I did also get to try City of the Dead stout at a couple of bars in the area.
Sam Adams NE IPA will be in town Friday for those wondering.
It's already in town...on draft at We the Pizza. Decent, but not noteworthy,
Has anyone seen Parabola in DC or NOVA? If so, where? Or have you heard any ideas of when it is expected to hit?
It’s on the shelf at d’vines in columbia heights, 1per, about 6 left 45 minutes ago. I magine it will land elsewhere in town in the next few days.
They also had 2 bottles of Madagascar in their fridge.
Parabola 2018 is on the shelf at Whole Foods P St. Waldos also.
But Friday is when it will be at Metro, so we should all know about it.
Will this be the next world-class BBA stout to turn into a shelf-turd in 2018?
We can only hope... It's a good time to be a beer drinker.
FWIW, cases of it on the floor of WF Fair Lakes. $21.99 a 4-pack.
