The Most Wonderful Ale of the Year

Beer/spirits tasting
Please note: This event has already occurred.
There are a lot of expat Midwesterners in D.C. How else to explain the huge crowds at Great Lakes Beer events, or all the Cleveland Indians caps therein? Of course, it could just be that the East Coast has discovered how good Ohio beer can be. The in-demand Great Lakes Christmas Ale is going on tap at Scion, along with 10 other regular and seasonal beers. All Great Lakes beers are $4 from 5 p.m. on, which makes them a steal. Christmas Ale is fine, but you should also head straight for the limited Blackout Stout and the Engine 20 smoked pale ale, which is usually only available at the Cleveland brewpub. (Sister restaurant Crios will also have a few taps, including Christmas Ale, but the larger and most interesting selection is at Scion.)
