You may remember that during SAVOR Beer Week, Jack Rose Dining Saloon and Victory Brewing Company teamed up with W. Curtis Draper Tobacconist to put on a cigar and beer pairing event. I was there and had an excellent time.

Congratulations to 3 Stars Brewing Company for launching last night at ChurchKey!
White Birch, New Hampshire's first nano-brewery, is entering the Washington, DC market via Hop and Wine. You may have seen a few bottles at Churchkey thanks to to DC's notorious grey market, but they'll soon be available at finer stores, bars, and restaurants as well.
