‘Twas a time when lawmakers wouldn’t dare show their faces at a local watering hole in the middle of a workday. Luckily for HOH, things change.

“I am proud that the District is as much about U Street, Shaw, and now our local breweries, as it is about being the nation’s capital,” the District Democrat said in a statement touting the rise of the craft brewing scene.  

The rest of the city can pay tribute by participating in the 7th Annual DC Beer Week , a celebration of barley, hops and local flavor scheduled to take place Aug. 9-16.
