H Street Launch Party Recap


All these snowy streets are giving us deja vu.... wait... Wednesday night actually did happen despite a few mid-week flakes! We warmed up with Atlas brews, including brand new Pumpernickel Stout flavor, great music, and good ol' fashioned fun with friends. 

If you were house-bound due to the traffic nightmare in and around DC, check out some pictures from the event and you'll feel like you were right in the mix. Plus, it doesn't hurt to cheer up your Monday after a weekend of cabin fever!

DC Beer Week


With DC Beer Week well underway here in the Beltway, we wanted to share some of the awesome events going on at our partner restaurants the rest of the week.


Head over to RFD’s 3rd Annual Coast to Coast Tap Takeover tomorrow, Wednesday August 12 from 3-11pm. This tap takeover will feature 20 breweries representing North, South, East, West, and Midwest- and beers are all $5. Beer lovers can also enjoy live music, and some peace of mind knowing that the $5 cover is benefitting St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital- it’s a win-win for everybody! 

Closer to Adams Morgan? Check out the DC Beer Battle for Charity at Roofer’s Union DC at 6pm. Enjoy Atlas and DC Brau beers as they compete against other local breweries! 

Wednesday’s packed full though, so you don’t want to miss Heritage Brews Takeover & Bubble Soccer at Penn Social DC at 6pm either. You can get some exercise in with the Bubble Soccer demo team, then refresh yourself with a few local beers!


Love Crabs? So do we. Stop by Smoke & Barrel’s All You Can Eat Crab Feast with Rar and Evolution. It’s all you can drink along with unlimited Maryland blue crabs (plus all the usual fixins- corn, potatoes, and hush puppies) from 6-8pm. 

Penn Social is hosting a Blue Moon Pie Eating contest at 7pm. If eating isn’t your sport of choice though, check out cornhole at Penn Social as well. The Harpoon Brewery Cornhole Tournament will kick off around 7pm.

Becoming a total beer enthusiast this week? Roofers Union is hosting founders and brewers from three local breweries who distribute their products throughout the district. Hear all about self-distribution and experiences bringing beer into the Capitol from 6-8pm.  


Drop in for “Deutschland in Dupont” at Sauf Haus Bier Hall during the Devils Backbone tap takeover. Enjoy some of the signature pretzels and sausages along with a huge portfolio of German-style beers and a great rooftop atmosphere. 

Have energy left for one last celebration? Head over to Old Ebbitt Grill from 8-11pm for BrewHaHa. Enjoy great local beer from DC Brau, Port City, and more along with food from Clyde’s Tower Oaks Lodge, Smoke & Barrel, and other great local restaurants!

Foodie And The Beast

If you were still fast asleep on Sunday morning and missed Spotluck’s debut on talk radio, have no fear! Foodie And The Beast featured Managing Director, Dave Moran, from Clyde’s Restaurant Group; Proprietor, Claudia Rivas, and Executive Chef, Brad Race, from Claudia’s Steakhouse; Beverage Director, Tom Kahoe, from Nage; and our very own CEO and Co-Founder, Cherian! 

Cherian sat down with Foodie And The Beast’s David and Nycci Nellis to chat about how the app connects users to awesome local spots. Not only does Spotluck bring yield management to the restaurant space, but it also helps Spotluckers discover delicious local spots across the city. 

You can hear a recap of Spotluck’s visit to the Foodie And The Beast studio, and more about how the app works below.
