There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Stone Levitation Ale
Where Spotted: Axis Bar and Grill, 1340 U St. NW
no need to switch to water: In the ’60s and ’70s, the ever-classy Schaefer billed itself as “the one beer to have when you’re having more than one.” If you’ve tried that dad’s brew, you know it’s not the tastiest pie at the fair. But with Levitation, Stone delivers a hopped-up low-alcohol beer (they call it an amber ale) that pairs as well with dinner as it does with the six-pack you just polished off.
No need for the swedish bikini team: Functionally, Levitation is a light beer. But unlike with watery light beers, your $6 goes toward quality ingredients instead of buxom lasses on billboards and Super Bowl ads. Think of the wonders if we applied this principle elsewhere: we could save the U.S. auto industry, end Soulja Boy’s career, and have a Five Guys in every McDonald’s!
