Garrett Peck, author of "Capital Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in Washington, D.C." discusses the history of brewing in the nation's capital. D.C.'s beer heritage dates back to 1770 and claims some very innovative brewers. However, the local beer market changed tremendously after Prohibition and the city was left without a hometown brew for decades before a recent resurgence.
