Here's what I 'did' for American Craft Beer Week, 13-19 May 2013.

Stayed local for ACBW Monday. DC Brau (Washington, D.C.) The Public Pale Ale, on draft at the Evening Star Cafe (Alexandria, Virginia).

Allagash Brewing (Portland, Maine) Beer Dinner at Fire Works Pizzeria (Arlington, Virginia).
- Wednesday, 15 May:
For an almost-local ACBW beer today, Victory Brewing (Downingtown, Pennsylvania) Prima Pils, on draft at Lyon Hall (Arlington, Virginia). Floral nose, firm malt, lingering, dry finish. Delicious!

- Friday, 17 May:
For ACBW Friday, stayed 'uber' local with Port City Brewing's Downright Pilsner ... at the brewery (Alexandria, Virginia). Review: here.
