WE MAKE
WHAT WE LOVE

You never forget your first sip

Both avid music fans, frequent bar goers, and enthusiastic men-about-town in the early 2000s, we were acutely aware of the empty tap handle & store shelf where a local beer ought to be found in our nation’s capital. So, in 2009 we combined our years of experience in brewing and beverage distribution to found the DC Brau Brewing Company. In the years since, we’ve crafted beer that we want to drink, and we hope you continue to enjoy every last sip. Cheers!
