Beer and baseball

What goes best with beer? Baseball of course!

Last night, Chris, Liz, Don and I went over to RFK for the Nationals v Diamondbacks game. The hometown team didn't give us much to cheer for, managing only 1 hit through 8 2/3 innings and trailing 7-0, but a late charge, started by Ryan Church with a 2-out solo shot to right-center got the Nationals on the board, and he was followed by a couple of hits, but that would be the beginning and the end of the scoring. 7-1 final, Diamondbacks.

However, the ballpark did have a "Beers of the World" stand, where Brace located some Old Dominion Ales for us and, as you can see from the photo, it was a nice dark ale with a fantastic head that only seemed to keep growing and growing. As Brace put it, it was "the head that kept on coming". They also had Redhook Longhammer IPA, but we stopped after the one beer with the 6:45am visit to the gym the next morning looming. More to follow from DC!
