It was a hot August Sunday afternoon at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. The beer vendors were shouting "Get your Miller Lite, water." With no real pause between the two liquid mentions, maybe the beer vendors were revealing the secret of light beer.
But I was thirsty for a good local beer.
After a hike from Section 106 to Section 130, I found the Beltway Bar beer stand pouring draft Dominion Ale and Fordham Ale ... at $7.50 a pour, with no other local draft choices, and with little signage (most of the vendors had no idea where, or even if, there was local beer).
But it's a start.
And good beer was indeed needed. The Nationals had a team record 10th loss in a row, falling to the Colorado Rockies 7-2.
Go here for an earlier story on the dearth of good beer at the ballpark on opening day.
