WASHINGTON — It’s just too bad 40 beers can’t fit on most birthday cakes.
WTOP’s Brennan Haselton is joined by Neighborhood Restaurant Group Beer Director and Food and Wine Sommelier of the Year Greg Engert to talk about Sierra Nevada 40 Years Hoppy Anniversary Ale for the latest edition of WTOP’s Beer of the Week.
