Octoberfest isn’t until, well, October but that’s not stopping us from putting out our annual beer issue. This week we’ve got a report on beer from Russia, the rise of brut IPAs and the fusion of beer and bike culture at Split Rock Tap & Wheel in Fairfax. If beer isn’t your thing, we’ve got the latest in music, film stage and of course trivia and the Advice Goddess. My advice: read this week’s issue for more!
