Establishment: Founders' Restaurant and Brewing Company, Alexandria, VA

Bill Madden, formerly the executive brewer of the Capitol City Brewing Co. brewpub chain, became brewer and part owner here in June. This is very good news for Founders; to see why, read the reviews of the 'Cap City' in Arlington, Virginia.

It will be interesting to see what happens here and at the other 'Cap City' brewpubs around the Washington, D.C. area in the next several months. They have good brewers on staff, but the chain's Executive Brewer Bill Madden has departed to become the brewer and part owner of Founders, a brewpub in Alexandria, Va. While the current Cap City beers, such as a kolsch and wee heavy made to Madden's excellent recipes, are still being made -- at least for now -- changes are likely.

The rumor about a Charlottesville brewpub, Starr Hill, taking this over as a production brewery is being denied by Starr Hill's owner/manager/brewer.

Don't just rely on the beer list at the bar or on the wall before you choose what to drink but ask if any "stealth beers" are available on tap; Cap City sometimes has an unadvertised offering that you have to know to ask for. These tend to be extreme brews (like their Imperial IPA) or something available in very small quantities (like their barleywine). Their intent in making them "stealth beers" is to reserve such treats for the 'family' and for the appreciative.

Establishment: Shenandoah Brewing Company, Alexandria, VA

The brewery's series of experiments with seasoning its beers in old wooden bourbon barrels have been very successful.

Establishment: Dr. Dremo's Taphouse, Arlington, VA

Dr. Dremo's no longer sells any Bardo beers because of a family feud, so it's turned into more of a multi-tap pool hall.

ABG has stopped brewing; now your beer choices are Bass, Budweiser, Guinness and Miller Lite.

Great Good Awesome! Great Great

Establishment: Dogfish Head Brewings and Eats, Rehoboth Beach, DE

Dogfish Head's brewers are often very 'inventive' -- sometimes these experiments work, sometimes they don't. But the perennials on tap usually include a very good "Shelter Pale Ale," an exceptional "Chicory Stout," and, when the weather's cold, an "Immort Ale" barleywine that are worth a trip to taste. Especially when you can also get a meal from one of the best restaurant kitchens in Delaware (entrees are consistently good, and the salmon sandwich or the pizzas are also exceptional as well as great values if you're on a budget.) Then throw in the eclectic mix of bands performing there which makes it one of the best places to hear live music on the Delmarva peninsula and a friendly staff from the owners on down, and you've got a great place to spend a comfortable evening.

Great Awesome! Good Awesome! Great

Establishment: Cooter Brown's, New Orleans, LA

The kind of place you can walk into for the first time in your life and feel at home, especially if Sam is behind the bar. A superb selection of beers, and (if you don't mind a serious slant toward the seriously unhealthy) a menu offering very generous servings of very good food. I recommend the muffuletta. If you follow my recommendation, I also recommend getting extra napkins.
