DC BRAU IN THE MEDIA
- 25 Breweries to Watch in 2013
May 23, 2013 | Ale Sharpton | firstwefeast.com
Washington D.C.’s beer scene is burgeoning rapidly, and inner-city brewing king D.C. Brau has a lot to do with it. “Washington DC’s first packaging brewery since 1956” was established by owners Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock in 2009, and the move to cans has helped them expand their reach considerably in the past year. Skall’s invaluable sales know-how and Hancock’s brewing experience (including a stint with Flying Dog) have made major noise throughout the Capital; their award-winning cold ones include the Corruption IPA, The Citizen Belgian-style Ale, and their highest ballot earner, The Public Pale Ale. Having expanded from 5,000 barrels annually to more than 12,000, DC Brau has had no problem getting surrounding states like Maryland and Virginia to join its brew party.
