April already and the blues festival is right around the corner! I can hardly contain my excitement over who's performing Friday at the State Theatre or Saturday at Cherry Hill Park or who'll be jamming at the Blues Brunch on Sunday -- or any of the other All Blues, All Weekend happenings All Over Town! This is my first blues blog and I don't know where to begin. OK, let's start with - what will we drink??? We'll Begin with Beer! Mad Fox Brewing Company, Falls Church's very own brewpub, will provide libations (for purchase) at the Tinner Hill Blues Festival on Saturday, June 9, 2012 in Cherry Hill Park (located at 330 Park Ave in Falls Church, VA.) Not only will Mad Fox be on hand to serve ice cold beer, the new Tinner Hill IPA (Indian Pale Ale) will be available. Just a couple of weeks ago the award winning brewing company introduced the new beer and titled it Tinner Hill IPA. The beer will be sold at the blues festival! Yes, you heard it right! The new ale - will be on available for purchase at the blues festival! Beer, BBQ and Blues, can life get any better than this? Only if you happen to have a beer named after you! Tinner Hill IPA s a light beer - golden, smooth and rich with a bit of a kick to it.
But hold it, you don't have to wait until June 9th to satisfy curiosity or your need to indulge. Head over to Mad Fox Brewing Company (located at 444 West Broad Street, Suite I, Falls Church, VA 22046. Phone 703.942.6840) and order a pitcher (or two). They're open: 11am - 11pm Monday - Wednesday, 11am - Midnight Thursday - Saturday, 10am - 11pm, Sunday, Brunch 10am-3pm. Visit their website for more information about beer than you ever imagined and see what's cooking on their menu or check. You know the food is good, when I admit that their shrimp and grits actually hold it's own -- that is a really strong recommendation coming from the creator of "Miss Nellie's Grits and Gravy"!
