DC Breweries Tour Recap

DC Breweries Tour Recap

This past Saturday, despite a continuous deluge of wintry mix in the Washington area, a car full of good friends drove across our nation’s capital to see five different breweries: DC Brau, Atlas Brew Works, Chocolate City, Right Proper, and Bluejacket. A testament to the success of craft beer right now, the longest drive between breweries was 15 minutes. The fun breweries paired with almost everyone being a bit sleepy and hungover made for a … Read entire article »

Aviator Brewing Company

Aviator Brewing Company

In late October I had an opportunity to check out a few local breweries in the greater Raleigh area. Before I left for my trip, I scoured around to see which ones I could visit. One of the closest to where I was staying was Aviator Brewing Company – a brewery I had never come across before. Having only “gotten off the ground” in 2008, it was relatively young in comparison to most of the … Read entire article »

Tröegs Brewery Tasting Tour

Tröegs Brewery Tasting Tour

Most breweries offer tours of their facility – but some truly go above and beyond.  On Friday, October 26, The Beer Circle writers Kenton Martin and Garrett Miller, accompanied by friends and guest writers Alyssa Cook, Brian Reitz, and Kelsey Bailey, took a tour of Tröegs’ still-new Hershey, PA location – which represents a considerable amount of brewing capacity.  The Beer Circle has stopped by here on a previous beer tour (and even got to … Read entire article »

16 Mile Brewing Company – Georgetown, DE

16 Mile Brewing Company – Georgetown, DE

Recently I drove out to the DelMarVa (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia) Peninsula and visited 16 Mile Brewing Company in Georgetown, Delaware. The name “16 Mile” itself is an homage to local Sussex county history. In the late 1700’s the county government was looking to move the capital from Lewes, located in the north-east of the county on the coast. Since interstate highways were still about 200 years away, the legislators needed to find a location that was more … Read entire article »

Dogfish Dash Weekend

Dogfish Dash Weekend

The sixth Dogfish Dash was held on September 30, 2012. The race consists of both a 5k and a 10k, with all proceeds going to the Delaware chapter of the Nature Conservancy. The Dash is by far the biggest source of funds for the conservancy. Each year the Dogfish Dash beats fundraising expectations. The 2012 edition of the race raised $38,500 which, considering that the combined registration was limited to 1900 runners and the 5k … Read entire article »

Allagash Brewing – Portland, Maine

Allagash Brewing – Portland, Maine

Tom and I had a wedding in New York State a few weeks ago, and we decided to turn it into a longer vacation by visiting his college roommate (and his wife, dog and cat) in Durham, NH.  Durham is the home of the University of New Hampshire, and about 20 minutes from Portsmouth. I’ll talk about Portsmouth Brewing in another post, but one day when Erick and Dana both had to work, we decided … Read entire article »

Yuengling Brewery Tour

Yuengling Brewery Tour

It amazes me that until recently I had not visited the Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville despite living just a shade over an hour away from it. As Yuengling Lager was a college staple for me and still is a solid fallback beer, I decided to rectify this situation. The tour attendees are gathered in the gift shop where there is plenty of historical memorabilia to peruse before the tour begins in the tasting room. If you’ve … Read entire article »

Lost Rhino Brewing Company – Ashburn, VA

Lost Rhino Brewing Company – Ashburn, VA

Several of us here at The Beer Circle now call Northern Virginia our home, and making it a point to visit all the breweries in the area is rapidly becoming high on our priority list.  Despite having lived in Northern Virginia for quite some time now myself (well over a year), there’s still quite a few breweries in the area that I still haven’t yet to made it to. So, last Saturday, with nothing else going … Read entire article »

Flying Dog Brewery Tour – Good Beer, No Shit

Flying Dog Brewery Tour – Good Beer, No Shit

Some friends and I went to Flying Dog for a brewery tour this past weekend. The tours are extremely popular and fill up quickly so we had to sign up 90 days in advance, the earliest possible. Reading below, you’ll see exactly why the tours are as popular as they are. The tour costs $5 per person and includes a Flying Dog tasting glass and six sample tokens. I started with their Gose, a draft-only release … Read entire article »
