Video of the Week: Snallygaster 2012 Beer Survival Guide

We love its tones, its textures, its weight and its flavor. We love the process and we love–absolutely, unequivocally–DC’s recent brew renaissance and embrace of all things wheaty, hoppy, thick and creamy when it comes to the stuff. And we know if anyone understands not only the sentiment but the art behind it, it’s the Neighborhood Restaurant Group.

And so we’re thrilled that Snallygaster, their annual “beer jamboree” and local-eats smorgasbord, is almost upon us. And since the October 13th event features four hours of over 150 beers and ciders, we decided to ask a pro how best to make it through the daunting beer list. (Don’t believe us? Check it out here.) We caught up with Greg Engert, Beer Director for Birch & Barley, on his 2012 Snallygaster Survival Guide.

Pro tips, ticket tricks, the best of each beer category, food, pairings, and finishing with a bang: all within. Godspeed.

Geek Night Comedy @ DC Improv Lounge
Geek Night Comedy is a stand-up comedy show created and run by geeks, for geeks. It includes a unique hybrid of both standup and improv. In its 5-year history, the group has run successful shows at the Virginia Beach & Richmond Funny Bones, here at the D.C. Improv, the Orlando Improv, and Awesome Con, their partners in this year's event! Past shows have received news coverage from local TV stations, as well as print coverage in The Virginian-Pilot, Inside Business and Sirius-XM's wildly popular "Monsters in the Morning." Charity is important to the Geek's Night, and their productions have raised thousands for ALS-TDI, the leading research group in the fight against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and will be doing so once again here at the DC Improv by giving away FREE passes to Awesome Con, along with other great items and collectables from local video game & comic book shops via our $1.00 raffle! A portion of door sales will also benefit this awesome non-profit.
