Take Flight At Flight Wine Bar

On Tuesday night the San Antonio Spurs, aged like a fine wine, will be coming into DC to take on the Washington Wizards. So we will be checking out the new-ish Flight Wine Bar on 6th street on the darkside of Verizon Center.

Flight is a wine bar offering, get this, flights of wine. They have an extensive menu of choices and a full food menu as well. If you are a beer drinker like me don't worry, they offer a nice little selection of craft beers on draft (as well as more bottles). Flight even has a pretty nice little happy hour with food & drink specials which we will be checking out on Tuesday.

In terms of beer, Flight offers their 4 draft beers (that seasonally changes) for $5 a glass. Right now they have 4 good choices including 2 local:

    Port City Brewing Company, Optimal Wit, Virginia
    • Belgian-style, steeped in coriander, orange peels, and grains of paradise. 5.0% ABV. 

    Eggenberg, Hopkenfonig Pilsner, Austria
    • An herbal pilsner brewed with Saazer hops (Bohemian red hops). 5.1% ABV.
    Lagunitas Brewing Company, India Pale Ale, California
    • Made with 43 different hops, this IPA delivers strawberry notes and a grassy flavor. 5.7% ABV.
    Baltimore Beer Works, The Cask, Maryland
    • Bavarian-style double bock, full bodied & robust, 8.0% ABV.

    They also offer one red and one white house wine for $7 a glass during happy hour.

    In terms of food specials your choices of small plates range from $5-$7 and include the following:

    • Olives
    • Bread basket
    • Duck and steak sliders
    • Zucchini fritters
    • Chocolate bon bons

    The specials look pretty neat and it will be a nice little escape from our typical hangouts before games. Hope you can make it out! See you out there and Go Wiz!!!
