DC BRAU - Washington DC's First Brewery Since 1956
    September 7, 2016 | DC Brau
    Washington, DC – September, 2016 – After years of cracking crabs and taking over taps during the annual DC Beer Week celebration, DC Brau is throwing down the gauntlet and taking its Marquee event up a notch. On Friday, September 30th , DC Brau will partner with Executive Chef Mike Friedman of Red Hen & All Purpose for a delicious and spectacular journey during an Evening of Magical Mystery. The remainder of the week will be filled with wall-to-wall beer events around the District – from Boundary Stone to the DC Improv to the atrium of the Old Ebbitt Grill. Cheers!

    DC Brau’s 5th Anniversary Festival is this weekend. In case you haven’t heard, it’s going to be a real blowout. Five bands and definitely more than five beers, to start with, and some of those beers will be collaborations brewed in honor of the half-decade mark. These beers will be available on draft at the brewery on Saturday, and they’ll start hitting the market later next week. The beers below will be available on draft and in cans, specifically in a six-pack including one of each and a can of On the Wings of Armageddon. There will be about 1,800 cases of these mixed six-packs (which are being hand assembled) sold between the brewery and the local market. It’s pretty neat, frankly; I’ve never seen a six-pack of six different beers before.

  • Reviving Heurich: A Historic Brew Retakes D.C.
    March 23, 2016 | WAMU / NPR
    For the first time in six decades an original D.C. beer is back in circulation. Heurich lager was one of 13 beers made by the Heurich Brewing Company in the early part of the 20th century. But Prohibition, fires and other challenges at Christian Heurich’s brewery erased the brand from taps and stores citywide. Now, a dedicated band of beer historians and homebrewers have lovingly re-crafted the beer after long hours in the Smithsonian’s archives, educated guesses and years of work with DC Brau. Kojo hears the fascinating story of bringing a D.C. brew back to life.

  • One of the most important names in D.C. brewing is back, with help from DC Brau
    March 16, 2016 | Fritz Hahn | Washington Post
    For the first time in more than six decades, cans of beer from the Christian Heurich Brewing Company are returning to Washington, thanks to DC Brau, the Heurich House Museum and some dedicated beer historians.

    Heurich was the largest brewer in Washington in the early part of the 20th century. The German immigrant opened his first brewery in 1873, and the Christian Heurich Brewing Company closed its giant Foggy Bottom facility in 1956. (Heurich himself died in 1945 at the age of 102.) We might wonder what the beer tasted like, but Heurich House Executive Director Kim Bender says a series of fires at the brewery destroyed most of its archives, including the recipes.
