Instead, this month, the SPBW will do a Metro-assisted pub crawl of the District of Columbia's cask-serving bars on Saturday, July 24th. Here's Branch president Rick Bloemke:
The Metro Pub Crawl will be just that, a visit to some of DC’s favorite beer haunts utilizing Washington DC’s Metro train system as transportation. It will also provide our DC and Virginia members the ability to have the SPBW meeting on their own “turf” for a change.
The day will commence at high noon at ChurchKey DC, a great beer and food emporium located in the Logan Circle neighborhood, at 14th Street near Rhode Island Ave NW. There is a possibility that ChurchKey will open earlier and just for SPBW Members if we can confirm enough numbers.
The precise itinerary will be fleshed out once our start time (noon or before noon) is determined, but the day will include visits to ChurchKey, District Chophouse, Pizzeria Paradiso (Dupont Circle), Capitol City Brewing Company (Union Station), Rock Bottom (Bethesda) and end at Commonwealth Gastropub at 7:00 p.m.
Basic Travel Arrangements:
→Each participant will need to purchase a Metro 'One Day Pass' ($9)
→Members in DC or Virginia, make own way to Church Key.
→Members driving from Maryland meet at Greenbelt Metro Station (Green Line).
→Members in the Baltimore area may use a public transport option. Light Rail to BWI ($1.60), then B30 Airport Express from BWI to Greenbelt Metro Station ($6).
Note: You do NOT have to be an SPBW member to join the crawl, but theannual membership is a measly $10 a year.
