It’s about time someone started respecting the belly instead of claiming it has something to do with “poor health” or “bad eating habits.” So thank you Kyle Bailey and the rest of the Birch & Barley team, for not pointing out our botched New Year’s resolutions and instead just feeding our, well…bellies. But Bailey and his kitchen are not exactly potato chip and frozen pizza people, so they’ve uped the fancy pants ante.

On Monday, January 31st at 7pm, he will be hosting his Beer Belly Dinner. The dinner will consist of five courses that feature the best bellies money can buy. No, not J-Lo’s belly, we’re talking about anything from goat to lamb to fish. Beer Director Greg Engert obviously wants to keep things traditional, because he’ll be adding to your belly with a expert beer pairing for each course.

The dinner will run you $76 per person and includes the beer pairings as well as a belly friendly dessert prepared by their wonderful pastry chef, Tiffany MacIsaac. Reservations can be made by calling 202-567-2576.
