Beer story of the year for Washington, DC?

Recommended Posts

Friday, June 18 was the last day for Bill Madden as head brewer of Capital City - Arlington, VA. Bill was won multiple medals at the GABF and Chicago Real Ale Festival.

The former exec chef for the original Capital City brewpub in DC, and a good friend of Bill, recently bought the Founder's brewpub in Alexandria, VA, and promised Bill a stake in the ownership if he came on as head brewer.

That's bad news for Cap City but great news for Alexandria. This should improve the chances of this brew pub surviving where previous occupants have struggled, and Cap City will survive I'm sure.

I just hope he took his Imperial Pale Ale recipe with him!

Cheers!

It's on King Street in Old Town. It used to be the Virginia Beverage Company.

It's just good beer karma, is what it is. Nice!
