Things to Do

A Monday Night for Beer Lovers

Remember when we did the ticket giveaway for The Shins, and our reader Rob won for submitting our favorite event? Well, the ticket-winning event that he submitted happens today, so let’s revisit the exciting activity:

“On Monday, March 26, at 7 pm, Randall the Enamel Animal will be unleashed at Birreria Paradiso (3282 M Street NW), the DC beer lover’s basement bar hidden below Pizza Paradiso in Georgetown. Randall is not some uptight Belgian brew or ancient Flemish-style ale meant to be sipped, sniffed, or snorted from a crystal snifter. Rather, he is a three-foot-long cylinder-filter that is packed with a half pound of whole leaf hops and then affixed to the beer line of a tapped keg of beer. Officially known as an organoleptic hop transducer module, this cool tool was designed by the mad brew scientists at Dogfish Head Brewing Company in Rehoboth Beach, DE. When combined with a high-alcohol brew like the award-winning Dogfish Head 90-Minute IPA, the beer filters through the Randall, grabbing the oils off the hops and inducing the most pungent and glorious fresh hop experience known to man (or woman). Combine that with some of the finest gourmet pizza in DC, and you have an evening of delectable delirium.”

Thanks, Rob! So if you want some excellent beer served through an extremely odd-sounding contraption, along with some of the best pizza in town, head on over to the Georgetown Pizzeria Paradiso this evening.
