The Pale Stale Ale with the Foam on the Bottom

Worked in D.C. for a few years with a mix of western PA people and people not from there in the late 1980s.

Were eating one night as a group in a place in Georgetown that had a very broad beer list, a huge display of beer cans*, and at the time was pretty much the place to find “not from here” beers for sale.

One of the non-Pennsylvanians had never had an Iron City. But they currently did not have any Iron City on stock. So someone ordered an Olde Frothingslosh, opened it, sniffed it, said “Iron City Light”, and gave it to the guy to drink.

* - Their display included a lot of various Iron City promotional cans since they did runs with pictures of the current Pirate, Penguin, or Steeler team on them.

Edit: Was the “Brickskeller” in Dupont Circle. Appears to have closed in 2010 or so. Reputation for mediocre pub food, awful service, but a large beer selection.
