Draft at Snallygaster DC on October 13th, 2012. A guy who works in distributing handed me a pour of this one - I never had heard of Union Craft Brewing. Was pretty impressed. Nice dark color, good malt aroma, light bitter taste. Looking forward to trying more, especially the one with duckpin in the name.
