Thursday, January 30th is our true anniversary date. So, we'll be tapping into a keg of our 4th Anniversary Quadracycle. Oh, yes we did. We squirelled away a keg of this Belgian Tripel and just dug it out. We're not sure exactly how it's going to taste, but we're banking on delicious.

Also, keep your eyes on Instagram and Facebook for rare beer releases, more Automatic happenings, as well as Tiger!Tiger! events.

5th Anniversary T-Shirts will be available starting Tuesday, Feb 4th. Limited amount of Zip-Hoodies sometime during the week. 

Pre-Anniversary... as in THIS Saturday!
Saturday, January 25th Allagash Flights with Fluxus, Saison Rye, Confluence, Hugh Malone, Interlude & James Bean.

And then THIS Sunday we'll have a very very limited amount of the Barrel-Aged Dark Horse 1st Anniversary Ale.

Hope to see you out during our celebratory week. And thank you, all of you, for we couldn't have done it with ya'!

We've made the Draft Magazine "America's 100 Best Beer Bars"
every year we've been open. That's pretty awesome.
This year feels even better with their new definition 
of what makes a bar "a top-notch beer bar."

"After six years of making this annual list, we had to rethink the definition of a top-notch beer bar. New ones are opening every second, and “good beer bar” no longer equals a zillion taps; there’s just more to it now. We needed to walk out of these places saying, “Now there’s a bar that really, really cares about your experience with beer.” So what does that mean? Having well-cared for, thoughtfully selected beer with an eye toward variety, trends and tradition, in the kind of place you’d want to stay awhile, delivered by someone who knows their stuff. We don’t want to send you to a place where the server doesn’t look up from her texting when you ask questions, or where you’ll be told a saison “is basically a lager.” (And yes, both of those things happened on our visits.) We’d rather you to go to ChurchKey in D.C., where beers are smartly grouped by flavor (citrusy, woodsy, etc.), rather than just by style. We want you to go to Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, Ore., which cares so much about beer freshness, the digital menu says when each keg was tapped and how much is left. We want you to go to all 100 of these places, because they really are a cut above the rest." - Click here to see complete Draft Magazine 100 Best Beer Bars 2014
