It looks like The Alchemist is now distributing Heady throughout the entire state of Vermont (about 5 years late). Heady shelf turds imminent.

Been wanting to get there for months... Also, Silver Branch just opened in Silver Spring as well.

I haven't been to Denizens in probably four years, but unless things have changed they used to make pretty turrible beer. Astrolab looks promising... Silver Branch looks like I'll be crushing pils (which isn't a bad thing).

Was pleasantly surprised by Astro Lab. Look forward to going back.

Denizens hasn't been good in a long time. Heard mixed things about Silver Branch but do want to check it out.

You are cordially invited to a *different* type of scavenger hunt this Spring: the first annual #DCEasterKegHunt. From Thursday, April 11th through Sunday, April 14th, join us along with our buddies at The Sovereign, Bluejacket & The Partisan for a craft beer-themed scavenger hunt across The District. The hoppy hunt is on...

STEP 1: Starting on Thursday, April 11th, pick up your official Easter Keg Hunt scorecard at any of the participating locations – ChurchKey, Bluejacket, The Sovereign or The Partisan.

STEP 2: Each location will have a different clue hinting at a special beer on the draft list.

STEP 3: Find the secret beer at all 4 locations by Sunday, April 14th, and win a FREE limited-edition commemorative DC Easter Keg Hunt 2019 hooded sweatshirt (retail value $45). Winners will be automatically entered into a drawing for one of five grand prizes:

• Four (4) VIP tickets to the beastliest beer festival of the year -- Snallygaster 2019!

BONUS ROUND: Increase your odds of winning a grand prize package by completing any of the following tasks. Each completed task will receive an extra stamp on your scorecard. The more stamps you have, the more chances you have at winning a grand prize.

• Solve a more difficult clue to find the "bonus" beer at each location.
• Dressing up in costume.
• Find the special "Easter Kegs" hidden at each location.
• Tag any participating location on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #DCEasterKegHunt.

interesting sour.  very wine-like, thanks to the use of grapes.  i have a bottle that i'm going to hold on to, for the next time i have a wine-drinker over that says they don't like any beer.   dark swan will change their minds.
