COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
D.C. United, in collaboration with DC Brau Brewing Company, LLC, announced that their limited-edition beer has been named “The Tradition.” Out of 534 entries in the “Brand the Brew” contest, Donald Wine II’s submission* reigned supreme, with midfielder Chris Pontius, defender Ethan White and defender Dejan Jakovic ultimately choosing the name for Washington, D.C.’s first-ever team-specific brew. While harkening back to the Black-and-Red’s rich history in MLS, “The Tradition” also tips its hat to DC Brau’s customary naming scheme of its beers, which includes “The Public,” “The Citizen” and “The Corruption.”

Can @ The WWGT2D? Tasting. Thanks to Travlr, the worst rater on RB! Great session IPA, this. Gold pour with a small white head. The nose is of white grape. Mellow honey and baked bread. The taste is pretty mellow, more white grape. Pretty bready. Light grassy hop. Pretty dry. Light body, soft carbonation. OK stuff.

A great golden ale, I hope this is not actually a limited edition beer as it states in the brewer description. There are way too few good golden ales bottled (canned) AND widely available on a regular basis. Hope to find this often, will purchase. Great.
