So on Wednesday (March 26, 2014) night, Brightest Young Things hosted New Belgium’s Snapshot Wheat Launch at Jack Rose (2007 18TH ST NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20009 ). Due to our love of beer and Jack Rose, of course there was no way we would miss out on this.
The event ran from 6pm to 10pm. Perfect time for happy hour, dinner, and a great way to break up the week!
Of course, there was a complete New Belgium take-over happening 🙂
Here’s the menu for the evening. (My favourites of the night were the Spring Blonde and the Yuzu)
Of course, what’s an event without a contest! In previous events at Jack Rose, we’ve won things like magnum bottles of European beer to a beautiful gold decanter bottle of Sam Adams Utopias. This event, there was a New Belgium Fat Tire beach cruiser bike on the line. Super cute! It was a matte red with bronze fenders and black handlebars. BYT created an instagram contest to determine a winner. We didn’t win this time but it was really fun seeing all of the #SNAPSHOTDC photos that were fighting for that winning comment 🙂
Halfway through, foodtime was in order. “ooo yummy snacks give me strength to make it through more beers!”. (I super recommend the garlic fries at Jack Rose. Everything I’ve tried on their menus has been delightful but defHereinitely the fries and their 3 dipping sauces).
Here we are with our good friend Nahem Simon, Jack Rose’s resident beer genius and director (Photo Taken by F. Mahr for BYT). We have Nahem to thank for always putting together super great beer events, traveling the world to keep the beer menu amazing and overall just being an awesome guy to hang out with. The New Belgium event was a lot of fun. It was great meeting the BYT crew, trying all sorts of flavours, mingling with other event/beer enthusiasts and having a fun mid-week night out.
After all the fun, it was back on the metro and on our way home. 🙂
Thanks Brightest Young Things, New Belgium and Jack Rose!
