Bachelorettes Do the Bluejack Brewery in DC

{by alexis}–A few weekends ago, I spent the weekend in Washington DC for a bachelorette party. One of my oldest and loveliest girlfriends is getting married in two short weeks, and so we gathered in her favorite city to drink her favorite drinks before we dress her up in white and push her down the aisle. After a busy Friday night of pub golf, we drenched ourselves in coffee and rolled up to the Bluejacket Brewery in the Waterfront district for a little hair o’ the dog.

First of all, let me tell you this place is GORGEOUS. Its walls are huge, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, which let the light from the unbelievably beautiful day spill in from every angle.

You feel like you’re outside while enjoying a cool beverage in temperature-controlled room with nine hundred foot ceilings. A few of us got a drink before the tour started, including a sample of the sour cherry beer. It was VERY different than anything I’ve had before, and tasty, though I’m not sure I’d love a huge glass of it.

After another drink and snack, we hopped into racing Ubers and made our way back to the hotel for one last night on the town. I can’t wait to see this one get married in a few weeks, and I’ll be sure to share a few pictures of the event (with the bride’s blessing, of course!).

It won’t be long till I’m back, DC. I hope you’re even half as pretty as you were that weekend in October.
