Vibrant Floral Label Designed by Local DC Watercolor Illustrator Marcella Kriebel

Washington, DC – As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers. But in DC Brau’s case, this month’s latest release is a playful purple hued potion with a puckering punch of lemonade. The brewery’s new Lavender Lemonade Berliner Weisse will be available beginning Saturday, May 18th at the brewery.

“At a very drinkable 4.5% ABV, this purple sour is perfect for picnics, patios & parties throughout the summer,” says DC Brau Brewmaster & co-founder Jeff Hancock. “I’d pick up a pack pronto!”

Brewed with Chico yeast and Falconers Flight hops, this approachable sour ale gets its kicks from bucketsful of dried lemon peel and lemon puree. Perfect when paired with salty and savory snacks, like popcorn, pretzels or pickles, the Lavender Lemonade Berliner Weisse will be packaged in 4-packs of 12 ounce cans designed by local DC watercolor illustrator Marcella Kriebel, as well as on draft within the District of Columbia and at the brewery.

DC Brau has been producing award-winning craft beer at its brewery in Northeast DC since 2011. For more information, visit, and follow on social media @dcbrau.
