Pumpernickel Stout + Hot Chicken = You Are Warm

Winter does not stand a chance, not against the forces of Atlas Brew Works' new Pumpernickel Stout and Maison Dixon's Hot Chicken.  

On Saturday, Capitol Lounge at 229 Pennsylvania Ave. SE will turn over its taps to Atlas for the launch of its newest brew, Pumpernickel Stout. The brainchild of Atlas Head Brewer Will Durgin, the new brew is made with rye, blackstrap molasses and is designed "to help us through the coldest days of winter," Atlas chieftain Justin Cox said. "This is whole grain belly warmer to see you through until spring."  

As accompaniment, pop-up food artist Adam Cox returns to the Lounge with his Maison Dixon vittles in tow: Nashville Hot Chicken, grilled pimento cheese sandwiches, chicken 'n waffles and smoked fried pork chops.  

If that doesn't beat back the cold, nothing will.  

From 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. No cover charge, but it would be kind to RSVP to reservations@maisondixondc.com to make sure they have enough grub for the crowd.
