DC Brau Brewing Company
Meet Our D.C. Brewery Partner
Introducing DC Brau Brewing Company, our first ever partner in Washington D.C. We're working together to bring something truly exciting to Washington D.C.'s neighborhoods and to the Great American Beer Festival® this September. Using whiskey barrels all the way from the Jameson Distillery in Midleton, Ireland, DC Brau Brewing Company have created two limited edition brews which you won’t want to miss. Hear from CEO and Co-Founder and Brewmaster Brandon Skall about the brewery, their neighborhood, and the journey to GABF.
"Community, history, craft, friends, collaboration."
Cross Quarter Days
"A beautifully-executed melding of two traditional European styles form a most unique imperial Belgian stout for the curious. A brown, powdery colored head boasts aromas of vinous oak, black pepper, and burnt sugar. Flavors of roasted cocoa nibs, candied date, and a spicy, earthy hop compliment the semi-dry, nurturing warmth of the noticeable alcohol note that hangs on just long enough."
Your Pet Cow
"This imperial coffee milk stout is a playful riff on an American stout. The use of lactose lends itself to an inspirational twist on a classic 'fortified' stout from a bygone era of English brewing tradition, with a more pronounced American hop character."
Try these limited edition releases at The Great American Beer Festival® this September.
"DC Brau is located in the Fort Lincoln neighborhood, a quiet residential area located along a main thoroughfare near the National Arboretum. Washington, DC has its share of government buildings, monuments and memorials, but for those of us who live here, the District is so much more! We’re a close-knit community of artists, activists, and collaborators who celebrate what makes the 51st State so unique. It’s mumbo sauce, half-smokes, and go-go music. We’re the birthplace of Marvin Gaye, the home of Jose Andres, and stalwart fans of the newly-crowned NHL hockey champions, The Washington Capitals. Come for the monuments (they’re best seen at night on foot) and museums (they’re free!), but don’t miss the off-the-beaten path restaurants, clubs, world-class theater, and, of course, the beer!"
- Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition
- DC Brau Cross Quarter Days
"I've always been a fan of the classic paring of bold stouts and hearty oysters. I'd recommend Olde Salts, a local variety grown in Chincoteague, VA by Rappahannok Oyster Co. which is a particular favorite of mine. The salinity of the oyster compliments yet also cuts through the barley roast and chocolate notes of this viscous offering. Cross Quarter Days will complement and pair well with Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition primarily based on some traditional flavors that align between the two fermented offerings. Faint aromas of hay harken back to found memories of barley fields that transitions into symbiotic notes of continental hop spice that lead us to the sublime, yet affirmative, cocoa finale. "
