Sheik Yerbouti but not your beer

There is a mall in the area of Washington, DC (Actually, it’s in Arlington, VA, but the two places are pretty much the same in my head) where I travel quite a bit. The entrance to this mall has been under construction for years. Recently, I finished a meeting and found myself with time for lunch before heading towards the airport. And at the front of the mall is a brand spanking new area of the mall that has finally finished construction with a new place to eat called Shake Shack.

Well, it certainly seemed like a worth while place to check out for lunch.  So, we headed on over.  As we approached the building, something caught my eye.

I’m pretty familiar with Brooklyn Brewery, and I was pretty sure that Shackmeister had to be something specific to Shake Shack.  Turns out I was right.  I got a really good burger, some excellent ice cream, and (most important) a new beer with lunch.

Obviously, I didn’t get a bottle out of this visit.  But, it made for a cool afternoon and a more relaxed metro ride to the airport.

I am a labeorphilist (one who collects beer bottles) looking to discuss the adventures often involved in obtaining the bottles and the challenges that accompany the hobby.
