WASHINGTON - It slaps your tastebuds silly, and (with a potent 10 percent alcohol by volume) can knock you on your keister.
Each year, beerheads -- none that we know personally, of course -- race out to buy as much Bell's Hopslam as they can, hoarding it in closets and garages and trunks of cars. (Again, someone told us this. We wouldn't do such a thing ourselves.)
After your first sip, you'll most likely start to understand ... and here now is Brennan Haselton, talking with Food and Wine Sommelier of the Year Greg Engert, for another WTOP "Beer of the Week".
