Our Story

Not too long ago, our nation’s capital was a world-class beer town without a brewery to call its own. Since Christian Heurich had closed the doors to his brewery in the 1950s, Washington DC had no brewery whose products were available in local stores and on tap outside its site of production. There were brewpubs, yes, but no breweries. Enter Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock.

Starting in 2009, the two of them went about filling the glaring void in the local beer market. Two years later, on Tax Day 2011, DC Brau Brewing Company officially tapped its first keg of beer entirely brewed, packaged and sold within the District of Columbia. Since then, the brewery has crafted award-winning beer — utilizing a delicious and uniquely American blend of North American and European techniques and ingredients — with distribution throughout the greater National Capital Region, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and beyond.

Our mission at DC BRAU BREWING LLC is simple: Bringing people together through extraordinary beer, passion for our craft, and pride for our community.

We accomplish our mission by observing a common set of values and professional ethics, by producing the highest quality beer possible, and by partnering with others that have a reputation for quality and supporting the local community. There are no shortcuts; we believe that our goals are accomplished only with a real commitment from each of our employees.

DC Brau’s values are Commitment, Experimentation, and Abundance.
