We had some time to kill on a Sunday afternoon before picking up our little ones so we decided to explore the DC beer scene. Our introductory brewery was Right Proper Brewing located in Brookland which is in NE DC near Catholic University. They also have a location in Shaw.
We arrived about 4:30pm which was perfect timing because that place was jumping within an hour of our arrival. Unlike wineries, beer tastings are by the ounce so a 4oz tasting was $2. We ended up trying about 9 beers. I tended to go to the lighter crisp side and Kelley was in the middle with the “hoppier” beers.
The standouts for us were the White Bicycle and the Astral Weeks. The White Bicycle is a light, crisp beer and the latter is a nice tropical beer. You can really taste the tropical notes.
Two great thing about Right Proper are they are open until 9pm (even on Sundays!) and they have a deal right now that Mondays-Wednesdays you can get your growler filled for $10. The regular price starts at $14. Sweet deal! Kelley stopped by on a Wednesday and picked us up a growler and got it filled with White Bicycle for $15. Two days later we had it with homemade pizza. Totally hit the spot!
