Sip: Ginger Shandies


It’s going to be an exciting Super Bowl this Sunday pitting brother against brother. And, oh brother, you need a party drink that’s not high maintenance. (Don’t want to miss a second of the game mixing drinks, do you?) Enter Ginger Shandies. A delightful blend of ginger beer and a light Hoegaarden which is sure to please both Ravens and ‘Niners fans alike! Cheers!


Sip: Brewsky Sangria


Not sure how I feel about this. I have not tried the Brewsy Sangria so cannot speak to it’s drinkability, but it seems to be rather interesting based on the ingredients. The pear adds a bit of a fall flair that might be a quite refreshing backdrop to the beer. If anyone gives this a go, please share your thoughts! Cheers!!

Depart DC: DC Funky Fresh Foodie Fest

I don’t know about you but those of us with kids heading back to school Monday are lamenting the return of the crazy fall schedule. The 1st Annual DC Funky Fresh Foodie Fest on Saturday August 25th from 1-9PM at the DC Fairgrounds is just the cure! How cool to combine food trucks in one locale with beer, cocktails, music, giveaways and Nats Park next door!
