DC Brau / SKA / Pietasters Tasterís Choice


Brewed by DC Brau Brewing Company
Washington DC, Washington DC USA
Style: Doppelbock | Ratings: 16 | Alcohol: 7.4%
"Tasterís Choice" is a collaborative beer between DC Brau, Ska Brewing and DCís own legendary Pietasters. We decided to brew a coffee infused Doppelbock. This delicate gem has been lagering in our tanks since early January. An incredibly smooth malitness balanced with a subtle coffee a character makes this a standout beer and truly a feather in the cap of both breweries involved. Tasterís Choice registers at a respectable 7.4% ABV. Proceeds from the beer and launch party at the Black Cat will go to the Todd Eckhardt Scholarship Fund, set up to honor the memory of former Pietasters bassist and songwriter Todd Eckhardt, who passed away in 2001. The fund benefits students at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts through the Ellington Fund.

Editorís Note: This entry is for the version brewed at DC Brau.
