Shine up those shoes and pick up your dry cleaning - the 2010 Brewer’s Ball is just around the corner! On Saturday, March 6th, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will sponsor the 6th Annual Brewer’s Ball event, to be held this year at the United States Chamber of Commerce.
During this brief break between snowstorms, you might want to venture out over the tundra to Churchkey and meet up with the founder of 21 Amendment, Nico Freccia. The San Fransisco brewmaster will be in town to discuss five of his beers that Churchkey will be graciously pouring on draft.
2009 was a great year for beer in DC with Founders, 21st Amendment, and Duck Rabbit making their presence known. The trend continues in 2010 with the debut of a new brewery to the DC market.
