On this week's show:
• DC Beer Week is on and one of the cornerstone events is Brewhaha at Clyde’s Restaurant Group’s Old Ebbitt Grill, which is featuring food and drink from nine area chefs and nine area brewers. Clyde’s managing director, Dave Moran, and the Hamilton’s executive chef, Anthony Lombardo, are in with the details.

• Claudia’s Steakhouse on K Street is DC’s new restaurant deliciously melding Latin and American influences. Proprietor Claudia Rivas is in with exec chef Brad Race (formerly of Jose Andres' Minibar, Spike Mendelsohn’s Béarnaise, Nobu and other great restaurants) with lots of sampling from what Foodie and the Beast think is an AWESOME menu!
