Over at, a post about my neighborhood

“My house is about equidistant from the Young’s brewery and the Fuller’s brewery. This is no accident.”
— Michael Jackson

Unlike Michael Jackson, it’s happy accident that my neighborhood is in the middle of the first three production breweries in Washington, DC in about 60 years. My wife and I bought a house in Brookland eight years ago, and now we live about ten minutes from Chocolate City, DC Brau, and 3 Stars, and yes, I’ve timed the drives. This probably isn’t a reason to move to Brookland, but consider it a contributing factor. Read the article here.

* Neighborhood boundaries in DC, as in many cities, are contentious. My apologies if this map, from, offends you.
