DC BRAU - Washington DC's First Brewery Since 1956
PENN QUARTER PORTER & OAKED PQP™

Penn Quarter Porter was our first in a line of draft and 22oz bomber limited-release beers, and it's a robust porter! Now available in Cans! In the way that The Publicâ„¢ is on the line between a pale ale and an IPA, this is on the line between a porter and a stout - with chocolate notes and a dry, roasted finish.

In addition to our Penn Quarter Porter, we have a very special release, aged for six months in Roundstone Rye® whiskey barrels from Catoctin Creek distilling in Purcellville, Virginia. Catoctin Creek are not only talented distillers, but they are also local producers of some of the finest artisanal whiskey available on the East Coast.

Frequently Asked Questions About PQP

Q: Can I age/cellar Penn Quarter Porter?
A: Despite the lower alcohol volume, we think the complex nature of PQP will allow it to age and develop into something even more special, if cellared properly. Put a bottle away for a year, and see for yourself!

Q: "Why do you call this a 'limited-release' when it seems to be available all year round?"
A: Penn Quarter Porter is brewed in much smaller, tightly-controlled batches than the other flagship beers. PQP production may also change at any time in order to accommodate other seasonal releases.

Q: What/Where is Penn Quarter?
A: Penn Quarter Porter is named for the Penn Quarter area of Washington, D.C., which most notably houses Ford's Theatre, where President Abraham Lincoln was shot. It also is home to numerous bars, restaurants, and museums.
