“Gimme a Beer”

Something’s brewing in the District.

Beer made right here in D.C. is once again flowing through the city’s taps for the first time in more than half a century. And people in town are raising their glasses to new, local brews.

Beer production in the States is now at its highest levels since before prohibition, and the District is no exception — by the end of 2011, the city will be home to at least four new full-scale production breweries that are already defining D.C.’s local craft brewing culture.

And as these up-and-coming brewmasters will tell you, D.C. is a very thirsty town.
