The Inaugural DC Beer Week

Rio Beer
Not from DC... But an international beer!

Yes, you read that right. The INAUGURAL DC BEER WEEK. Starting on Sunday, August 16th and running through the 21st, DC will be hosting its very own Beer Week to celebrate both domestic and international brews, including Abita (yes, my friend Anjali, Abita!!), Allagash, Chimay, Dogfish Head, and Rogue.

Wondering what this week will include? Each day offers a chance to learn about beer, to taste beer, and (for what I'm looking forward to) to enjoying different types of beer with fabulous food. Some of the highlights:
Sunday: "Unity Jam" at Rock & Roll Hotel ($20 for 10 4oz sample pours of rare craft beers).

Monday: Allagash Beer Dinner at Granville Moore's (the place featured on "Throwdown with Bobby Flay" for their mussels) -- five course, six-beer dinner for $75.

Tuesday: Rogue Oregon Oyster and Ale Festival at the Reef (oysters and beer? YUM)
Oh how August is just filled with DC restaurant-ness. The following restaurants are participating in DC Beer Week:

For full details, check out their website. If you check out any of these events, I want a full report (or at least some details of how it was :))!

Prez Obama should've held off until now to do his beer summit. :)
