We’re happy to announce that after a hiatus, Chicks Love Beer is back in business and ready for the snow to melt and for craft beer event season to begin! To kick it off, Charlie Fish and I will be headed to the Craft Brewer’s Conference in DC to learn more about brewing, marketing and let’s face…to hang out with our brewer buds. We’ll be keeping you posted on what’s new, what’s happening and what great beer is coming out all over the country! Stay tuned!!
If you’re looking for something to do this weekend and have a hankerin’ for beer and BBQ – check out the DMV (that’s DC/MD/VA – not the Dept of Motor Vehicles) bash on Sunday from 4PM-10PM at Smith Common in DC. $20 gets you in the door as well as a main entree, a side and a sweet treat for dessert. Beverages, alcohol, taxes and gratuity are not included. Breweries include Flying Dog, Port City, Heavy Seas, Stillwater and many others. Brewery reps will be on-hand to answer your many beer questions. Some of the chicks are headed that way, so stop by and say hi!
OK…. so it’s not beer. And I admit, spirits aren’t for everyone, but Catoctin Creek is the real deal. Founded in 2009, Catoctin Creek Distillery is the first legal distillery in Loudoun County, Virginia since Prohibition. And they’ve got it going on! Cactoctin Creek has been winning awards for their high quality spirits. Mosby’s Spirit, an organic rye “white whiskey” that’s as smooth and very drinkable. I’m not a spirits-lover, but this stuff is as smooth as they come!
“So what do birds have to do with booze?” you ask.
This coming Wednesdsay, June 22 @ 6:00pm Catoctin Creek Distillery will be doing a tasting paired with appetizers at Market Table Bistro in downtown Historic Lovettsville! The “Ducks” at the distillery are the works of Market Table Bistro’s featured artist of the month, Gold Feather Photography. This art show and tasting is just one of a fantastic line of events held at Market Table Bistro. Chef Jason Lage will provide appetizers to compliment Catoctin Creek’s fantastic spirits which include Mosby’s Spirit as well as their: Roundstone Rye – an aged rye whiskey said to be “wise beyond their age” and Watershed Gin – a complex distillation with secret ingredients.
