Crooked Run does milkshake IPAs, can't say if they are good or not though.
Are you looking specifically for milkshake IPAs or just generally hazy/NEIPAs? I know some people use the interchangeably, and if that's the case here you might as well swing through Ocelot by Dulles as well.
All of Crooked Run's IPA's taste off to me. Maybe they have improved over the last couple months, but I think their IPA's are horrible. They have this super green and play dough taste to me.
Their pilsner, Coast, is awesome though.
can check out crooked run, they sometimes have some. the leesburg location would be closer to aldie but has a smaller tap list. Old Ox is opening in Middleburg this weekend and they might have something as well.
if you make it up to leesburg there are a handful of other breweries (Black Hoof, Black Walnut, BikeTrale, McDowell Brew Kitchen) and some decent bars all within a few blocks of each other.
Wanted to let everyone here know that The Bruery Store at Union Market is hosting a pop-up can sale with Triple Crossing today, starting at 11 am. Brands will include:
Salinity w/ Lime
All Neon Like
Hope to see everyone out at the shop today, cheers!
Oh damn, had no idea
Milkshake. Wife is also big on hazy IPAs but I'm specifically looking for milkshakes. Went to ocelot last time we visited. It was fantastic.
Man from Wisconsin MUST have lactose in his IPAs.
I mean, gosh, my initial post was last week. I can't believe it took this long to get this response.
PSA - Downtown Crown is currently doing an Other Half can sale that was announced a couple hours ago on the DTC IG account. If my fridge wasn't currently full of triple crossing I'd head up there but c'est la vie.
Aslin is releasing (what I assume is) a 'milkshake IPA' today, contains milk sugar anyway. Not sure when you will be in the area but maybe you could have someone in your family pick up a 4 pack for you cause I'm guessing it won't be around more than a couple days.
Does anybody know why Craft Beer Cellar refuses to carry Backwoods Bastard?
My guess would be because it is widely available.
But, it’s their lost, as it is a great beer!
Try again. They just had a Founders tasting there yesterday with all their common beers. Someone asked about Backwoods Bastard and the owner said she refused to carry it but I didn't catch why. The Founders rep said too bad because it's a good seller.
refused to sell it sounds like an objection to the name, but that's pure speculation. It's not like they don't sell similar style beers, that beer has a history of issues, and obviously they're ok with Founders as a business. Not sure what's left.
Or you could just ask them why
Someone asked the last time i was in the store. I couldn't hear the answer. Not sure when i'll be back in he store again to ask...was hoping someone else here had asked...oh well.
DTC still has cases of DDH Mylar Daydream, DDH Double Simcoe Daydream & DDH Ain't Nothing Nice left. With this weekly drops of OH beers in the area, no reason for any of that Aslin swill.
Forgive but DTC?
Downtown Crown in Gaithersburg.
Downtown Crown. Located in Gaithersburg. Same dudes that own Dominion in Falls Church own that place. They have been getting OH drops a couple times a month. The prices are the same as from the brewery as well, so no up charge.
Speaking of, whatever happened with OH opening up in DC (Ivy City). That still happening?
I've heard it's still on, but haven't heard a timeframe or exact location.
I’ve heard late fall/early winter
Are they still going with the brewery/axe-throwing combo?
Agree on the OH drops at DTC, no need to go to Aslin anymore....unless I need a new skate board
Yeah these OH drops are great. The oat cream mash they use seems a lot easier on my stomach than straight lactose.
DTC still has OH cans from the Fri drop. Double Cream Get the Honey is fuego.
When is Dominion going to show us some Other Half love? My June can supply is running low. Might have to start drinking that "swill beer" /s from Aslin.
Yeah, I talked to the guys at Dominion about this last week. Apparently there's a loophole in Maryland law that lets OH self-distribute to DTC. No such luck in Virginia.
Weird, since they were able to sell Equilibrium cans?
True that drops at DTC have been more common but there were OH cans at Dominion a few months ago that coincided with a tap takeover.
Yeah, not sure how they worked around that. Maybe because of the tap takeover? Dunno.
I think the difference is that Equilibrium came through a distributor, and OH isn't aligned with a distributor. That was my understanding anyway.
Shoulda bought more OH last weekend. Hoping for a ldw drop at DTC
In Maryland you can self distribute, and just pay a fee for your brewery to enter the state. In Virginia, aside from paying a fee to enter the state you also need a distributor. In rare cases the brewery will pay to enter the state and do a one time contract with a distributor for special occasions.
Your wish was granted.
What is ldw?
Labor Day Weekend.
