Drink This: Beer #1 @ Snallygaster 2017 (9/23/17)

What beers will you enjoy at Snallygaster?

The sixth edition of Snallygaster hits DC on Saturday, September 23 at The Yards (right next to Nationals Park).

This year you can find over 400 beers! While you wrap your head around that, start preparing. If you like specific beers or breweries (over 100 different ones), or want to find your ‘whale’, then draft a game plan. I say draft because you’ll probably use it for a few beers and toss it aside as you immerse yourself into the whole Snally experience.

Use the Snallygaster beer list to create your own game plan here.

You can also download the official Snallygaster app, Pombe, from the App Store on iPhones (or Google Play on Droid devices) and find Snallygaster under the ‘Event List’.

Here on the blog, we’ll try* to post a couple of times this week on beers we are looking forward to. Find the first day’s entry. (*We are traveling.)

Jeremy’s Beer #1: 3 Stars Raspberry Dissonance (Berliner Weisse w/ Raspberries) ABV 3.6%
For me, Snallygaster is usually about trying new beers, or revisiting hard-to-find beers. And I like to try all the beers from our local breweries. This year there are 26 beers available from DC breweries – DC Brau (4), Hellbender (2), 3 Stars (4), Atlas (4), Bluejacket (6), District Chophouse (4) and Right Proper (2). There are also 6 ciders from two of DC’s three(!!) cideries – ANXO (4) and Supreme Core (2). I’ve had the 3 Stars Pineapple Dissonance at their tasting room, and have enjoyed all the sour beers I’ve tried by them thus far. This raspberry version should get me back into the swing of sours and be a good place to start the day! I may also swing over to try Boulevard’s Love Child No. 8 (Barrel-Aged Sour Red Ale) ABV 9%, since I recently visited the brewery in Kansas City and it’s strong.
