Monday Night Beer Series

Editorial Review

Another week, another set of good news for D.C. beer lovers: Dan Searing, the bartender/owner of Room 11 in Columbia Heights, has started a new Monday night beer series that involves tapping a fresh keg of some beer that's not usually on the menu. The debut saw Victory's Yamika Twilight, a dark ale that mixes a rich, roasty, malty character with a knockout blow of strong hops. This time around, it's Brooklyn's delicious Black Chocolate Stout, which is as velvety and smooth as the name implies. Searing says he's thinking about pairing it with blue cheese, which sounds like a smashing idea to us. Doors open at 5, and the beer is served until it runs out.
