It's DC Beer Week and there are a lot of interesting activities going on around town where you can enjoy some great craft beer. It's a cool annual event, but not normally something that we would cover on Boundary Stones.

But, as kegs were tapped and bottles were uncorked from coast to coast, one place was left out of the party: Washington, D.C.
