new web-list of DC/Baltimore seasonal beers

Bob Tupper —he of the temporarily homeless Tuppers Hop Pocket Ale and Pils— has created a page at his website to list up-to-date information on seasonal beers at all local breweries and brewpubs.

Seasonal beers are one of the true delights of living in a vibrant craft brewing area. But I don't know of anyone who regularly keeps track of what's available when. So I'm going to give a try on a page on our website.
His criteria for local is:
what's on tap at the more than 20 breweries that attend Brickskeller Tastings
As an example, the current seasonal at Rock Bottom Bethesda (Bob's real local) is listed as:
Fire Chief, a Dusseldorf Style Alt Bier. Brewer Geoff Lively describes it as fiery red in color, medium bodied, malty up front with a clean bitter finish.. Five malts plus Mt. Hood (our favorite) and Tettnang Hops. 4.9%. We liked the balance of malt and hops.
The page is really in beta form at present: here. But Bob promises updates as he receives them. If the link doesn't work, go to
