Barrel-Aged Beauties: Volume 1
Wednesday, July 18, 2012 - 6 pm-10 pm
ChurchKey1337 14th St. NW
Washington, DC, USA 20005
From time to time, through some careful hoarding and some stars aligning, we find ourselves with a bevy of barrel-aged brews just begging to be unleashed on the DC craft beer scene...
This coming Wednesday will see the tapping of no fewer than 10 exciting, exotic and esoteric ales recently woken from a oak-induced slumber. Beginning at 6 pm we’ll pour a myriad of barrel brews, each showcasing singular nuances from their time in the wood: some sour, some funky,some oaky...all delicious!
DC Brau is sending the works, with 3 barrel-aged drafts and 1 barrel-aged cask on the roster. Goose Island has kindly sent a KEG of Bourbon County Stout, and we have have a couple Zymatore Series Sour Oak-Aged Ales set aside as well (Grado Plato Strada San Felice and De Glazen Toren Saison d’Erpe Mere both matured in Italian Piazzo Fortified wine barrels...and the d’Erpe Merpe will be poured via an oak clad gravity keg!).
All barrel-aged beers will be served in 4 oz. taster pours and full glass pours. There is no admission for this event.
