Hop, Cask & Barrel, the liquor store at 1717 Wisconsin Ave. NW that replaced Wagner’s Liquors, asked the Georgetown-Burleith advisory neighborhood commission for the opportunity to extend its hours past 10 p.m. on select dates. Business co-owner Ankit Desai and lawyer Andrew Kline spoke at the Aug. 31 meeting. Kline argued the Hop, Cask & Barrel was a good neighbor and had poured $400,000 into renovation work at the store. (The business group also owns Sherry’s on Connecticut Avenue and Metro Wine & Spirits on Columbia Road.) Desai thanked the neighborhood for its welcome. He is working with community groups on mutual events.
