what the schmuck wrote:Good tip on Astro Lab. Family vacation (really just my wife has a conference and my son and i are being dragged along) to DC area next month and we'll be staying with my wifes sister who lives in Silver Springs. Will def try and hit that up.

I really have no expectation of having any 'me' time to do anything so if i have just 1 place to hit up and it's close it'll be a win.


If you have the chance to do anything else, check out the Right Proper location in Brookland. Quick Metro ride from Silver Spring and it's the other best brewery close into the city. Very chill spot (and baby friendly).

I'd say hit me up since I live in Silver Spring, but I'll be gone most of May...

the two Modern Times member stouts I've tried so far - Dragon Mask and Beastmaster - were both outstanding, I'm excited for the rest of the year

I haven't really been messing with modern times shelfies here cos there are so many other solid craft shelfies available in this market (Philly). Tonight i.e I thought about finally trying booming rollers but went for the usual half acre and oxbow cans instead.

Also oxbow might be my favorite American brewery anymore. Luppolo is an incredible pils, farmhouse pale ale is a great shelfie saison and all their smaller run draft offerings are decent to amazing. Can't think of a lousy beer I've ever had from them.

I am now a Horus member 8-)

Their stouts were stupid good in 2018, and I think they might start barrel aging stuff this year. Between this and modern times it is bricker’s Year of the Pastry Stout

90 Minute IPA and Three Philosophers were the two gateway beers I first had at a craft beer bar.

My parents live in Milton, so I go to Dogfish a fair amount. I appreciate them, and I understand why they did this move at this specific time. Rarely drink their stuff when I'm not in Delaware but they make pretty good shelf beers.

Feel free to say no, but I'd enjoy doing a HPN QBT share day sometime. We could open bottles outside Barbara's then do Barbara's and HPB Chinatown.
