And, I don't know why, but it sort of annoys me that you can now get Founders Backwoods Bastard all year long.  I used to love the fact that, it only came out in a certain time of the year and it was awesome when it did. Now they have the big bombers, and everything has changed. Welcome to the, new world.

Are the four packs year round, or just the bomber?

Tuesday, January 30th, as ChurchKey hosts the fine folks from Aslin Beer Company. On this night, well showcase 25 different beers from the red-hot brewery from Herndon, VA!

Over the upcoming weeks, Aslin is hosting a series of exciting events in Washington, DC leading up to the grand opening of their brand new tasting room. ChurchKey is honored to kick things off with the first official DC event, featuring one of the largest collections of Aslin beers ever assembled!

Highlights from the incredible list include Cocoa Mapalm, an Imperial Stout finished with cocoa nibs, maple syrup and vanilla; Sorbet, a juicy IPA infused with peach and mango; and Pinkies Up, a quintuple dry-hopped, 18.4% abv Imperial IPA.

If that wasn't enough, we'll also be giving away a limited amount of Aslin x ChurchKey glassware, available exclusively at this event. Make sure to get here early to snag yourself one of these limited release collector's items!

There is no admission charge for the event. All Aslin beers will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.

Additionally, Birch & Barley will feature a 6-course tasting menu paired exclusively with Aslin beers!

This special tasting menu is available throughout our dinner service, from 5:30 PM until 10:00 PM. All Birch & Barley dinner reservations can be made by visiting birchandbarley.com or by calling (202) 567-2576.

As the resident value seeker, I'm going to boast of having attended the Pizza Paradiso/Aslin night, where all beers were $4 for happy hour and you got the free glassware to boot. The draft list wasn't nearly as extensive, but it was way more than adequate.

Speaking of Dogfish, we split a 12 oz Oak Aged World Wide Stout tonight. Lord that beer is a beast.

Looking at that Churchkey/Aslin list, I might just have to do it. I'll have 30 mins before i need to head to the train Wonder how much i can drink and how many glasses i can score?

Haha.

Aardwolf (Jacksonville)
Civil Society (Jupiter)
Funky Buddha (Ft Lauderdale)
J. Wakefield (Miami)
Charles Town Fermentory (Charleston)
Edmunds Oast (Charleston)
Westbrook (Mt Pleasant SC)
The Veil or the Answer (Richmond)

For sure Civil and JWB
even if you don't get the mind blowing pour of a beer at JWB, the Wynwood Arts District alone is worth it for walking around a few hours.

If you like the Belgians...Barrel of Monks in Boca is worth it vs going to funky budda
Odd Breed Just opened in Popano and they make some serious sours, but haven't been

Thanks! BOM and OB both look very promising. May have to do them instead of FB. Staying in South Beach airbnb but yes planning on doing Wynwood for at least one night.
