Busboys and Poets, the Washington area bookstore-cafe with locations in Shirlington and near U St., is running an “Organic Beer Happy Hour” that, according to the article, was inspired by . . . me! Now that’s change I can believe in.
A few months back, Busboys hosted me for a book signing and talk. It seems the talk was received well enough that it inspired them to feature a weekly happy hour every Wednesday featuring specials on organic beers. According to their website, they are offering the following beers for $4:
- Wolaver’s Brown and Farmhouse Ale
- Brooklyn’s Winter Ale (hmm, this one’s not actually organic, though Brooklyn Brewing is wind-powered)
- Peak’s Amber
- Clipper City’s Winter Storm
That last one isn’t organic either, but maybe they meant Clipper City’s Oxford Organic Amber, which I’ve been helping to launch in the regional market through organic beer dinners such as the one being held at Great Sage on June 26, 2008.
Now you have two great excuses to come on out and have an organic beer here in the DC area.
