New, 1 comment

BALLSTON—So, this is probably going to be neat: the Neighborhood Restaurant Group's expert beer director Greg Engert is launching a Beer Academy in 2012 that involves two-hour-long classes held once a month at Rustico, all discussing various beer-related topics. It gets underway on January 21 with a class titled, "Tasting Craft Beer: Examining the Flavor Spectrum across the History of Beer." Class passes are $24 per person, though there are also packages available for would-be students who would like to enroll for three, six, nine or 12 months at a time. For reservations, call 571-384-1820. [EaterWire]

OPENING REPORTAccording to a Don Rockwell thread, a new independent coffeehouse by the name of Lot 38 has opened up in Southeast DC serving Illy coffee.
