    We're going to be in the DC area from Friday-Monday.

    I'll be in Washington too so I'm going to go to places in Adams Morgan and Georgetown as well, but I'm definitely looking for some places to get good IPA's. Retail is a must visit because I'll have my car and I'll be able to put it in the trunk and take it home.

    Aslin is open for can sales I think everyday now in the summer. Avoid rush hour (go before they close at 8) and it will only be a half hour drive.

    I don't think I'll be able to make it to Aslin unfortunately.

    Is there any way to get Aslin in the city on tap? I just want to try it

    In Arlington, go to The Brew Shop, Arrowine and K-1. In Falls Church (about a 15-20 minute drive away), go to Dominion Beer and Wine. On the Arlington/Alexandria border hit up Dept of Beer and Wine. These are the best bottle shops close to you.

    It's usually on tap at Churchkey, which I hope is on your list of stops in DC.

    Yea I'll be up in that area as well. I went on my last trip and it was out the door.

    As previously stated, ChurchKey typically has it on tap. Similarly the other restaurants in that group like Meridian Pint, Brookland Pint, and Red Apron Butcher among others. Untappd and beer menus are pretty reliable to find Aslin in DC.

    Norm's Beer and Wine is an excellent, family owned bottle shop in Vienna, not far at all. Great prices, selection and people

    You should be able to find some Rar, Equilibrium, Veil, Solace, etc around town however i would rely on BA/Untappd for ratings.
