(Well, with a quick pause in northern Virginia.)
I spent my Saturday exploring, looking for good beer.
My first stop was the DuClaw beer pub in Hanover, Maryland:
The first brew I tried was one that I had not sampled before, their American dark ale. They call it Black Lightning, and I really, really liked it.
For a dark beer, it was plenty hoppy with a very rich kick of chocolate.
DuClaw offered plenty of choices:
From DuClaw, I typed "craft beer" in to my GPS and was directed to Frisco's Tap House:
There, I started with an an-always exceptional Stone offering, their Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. I finished with a Heavy Seas Gold Ale, served cask-conditioned:
From there, I headed in to Virginia, and visited a Dogfish Head Alehouse:
And chose a Shelter Pale Ale.
I apologize for being light on the reviews this afternoon. I am preparing for a trip to Seattle, but I wanted to share my adventure.
While I discovered some outstanding ales this weekend, I'll choose to continue the journey...
