It be proper to my eyes

I travel to Washington, DC quite a bit.  Sometimes I get the chance to branch out and look for breweries in the area.  On my last visit, I dragged some co-workers to Right Proper Brewing Company in the historic Shaw neighborhood.

The place looks pretty unassuming from the outside.  But, once you get through the front door, you are treated to a smorgasbord of interesting and hip murals.

My favorite mural has pandas and foxes with laser eyes.

And the hip humor doesn’t stop there.  Oh, no.  I got a growler and (as a collector of unique bottles) was please to see that it was a wine bottle growler that features a squirrel with a flame thrower.

The only confusion I had was when I saw the menu that listed the place as both Right Proper Brewing and Shaw Brew Pub.

A quick chat with the manager set me straight.  Right Proper Brewing has two locations.  A large brewery and distribution center in Brooklyn, NY and the smaller brewery and kitchen in Shaw.  I did make sure that the beer I got in my growler was brewed at the Shaw location where I was hanging out.

In the end, I had a great time in a cool place and walked away with a unique bottle for the collection.  How can you ask for anything more in life.
