The destruction of beer reminds me of the time when Coors was only available in certain parts of the country, there was such a demand for  it people were illegally transporting it across states.  A load of land it landed in the Grosse Pointes of Michigan and then confiscated by the authorities, who proceeded to steamroll the cans in a local parking lot...

if only the modern bootleggers had only remembered to transport the stuff across the river...

This is what I was thinking too. I think people forget that all of that insanity in the film is based around getting beer to a nascar race on time.

The bad news is the Bruery retail store in Union Market is closing. The good news is:

Rumor has it The Bruery is not done with the DC-area, however. They may be looking at either Alexandria or Arlington for a tasting room, with retail and distribution components as well. We’ll monitor this situation and keep you updated

welp not totally dead as they are thinking of reopening somewhere else

New District Brewing Company

After a great run, we are sad to announce that New District Brewing Company will be closing our location in Shirlington at the end of May. While we're still optimistic about reopening in a new location, for the moment we are saying goodbye.

Astro Lab closing, space taken over by Third Hill. That's surprising, I thought Astro Lab was supposed to be the best of the bunch in Silver Spring.
