    A third of the top 20 beer brands sold in this country are unspectacular, cheap, socially acceptable alcohol delivery mechanisms classified as generic light lagers. I get it, you’re looking for something that you don’t need to think about and refreshes you easily. In this case, why not try DC Brau’s Brau Pils, a very drinkable brew featuring light carbonation and a slight hop profile that should meet your needs.

    DC Brau prides itself on being the first of its kind. For decades, our Nation’s Capitol lacked a brewery to call its own. DC Brau opened its doors in 2009, and was the first to brew and distribute beer within city limits since 1956. It didn’t take long for the trend to catch on. In the past few years, the city has become a verified beertopia, as brewers like 3 Stars, Atlas and Denizens moved to town. And those are just the breweries.

    Beer has become a fine art in this city, and restaurants all across DC are catering to young residents hungry for ever more unique and flavorful craft beers. From brewpubs like Biergarten Haus to large operations with in-house brewing like Bluejacket, Washingtonians now have an unprecedented amount of options when it comes to choosing a beer.

    WASHINGTON — It may be hard to believe, but just a short time ago, there were no breweries in D.C. There hadn’t been one since 1956, when Christian Heurich Brewing Company closed its doors.

    But the District’s 50-plus-year dry spell ended four years ago, when friends Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock opened DC Brau. And the business ignited Washington’s brewing boom as others soon followed.
