On Sunday, Georgetown Brewing Company hosted a party at the brewery and we were fortunate enough to attend. Although they’ve been in the new digs on Denver Avenue for some time now, and have actually been brewing there for well over a year, this was dubbed a house warming party. Like everything Roger, Manny and the G-town crew produce, the party was awesome. Great music, great beer, great people, and the weather even cooperated.
The bands performed on the loading dock, while the crowd was assemlbed in the parking lot, which is conveniently fenced off for security. The party spilled over into the retail space and even into a portion of the brewery itself. The crowd was comprised of industry insiders and various other types of friends. Georgetown Brewing has a lot of friends and it seemed that they were all at the party yesterday.
Food was provided by a hot dog vendor, a taco truck, and Hallava Falafel. We opted to wait in line for a shwarma sandwich from Hallava Falafel. We’d heard stories about the amazing food served by this little yellow grub-truck, which can most often be found on a corner in Georgetown but always seems to to be closed when we’re in the neighborhood. The sandwich was worth the wait.
A tent in the parking lot was pouring Roger’s Pilsner, Manny’s Pale, and Lucille IPA. More beer was available inside at the retail bar. The servers were all representives of the Great Nabob (the bar on lower Queen Anne). They did a great job and seemed to be truly enjoying what they were doing.
