Ales from the Dark Side: Volume IV: 20 Rare Brews on Tap

On Tuesday, March 25th, darkness once again descends on ChurchKey.

And it promises to be an eventful evening with at least 20 scarce and salient selections from the dark side on hand. Starting at 6 PM, some of the elusive elixirs that will course their ways through the ChurchKey draft lines include the newest iteration of the Founders Backstage Series: Smoked Porter (a Porter brewed with beechwood-smoked malt and oak-smoked wheat malt). Other domestic treats showcased include the uber-rare Foothills Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout brewed with cocoa, the brand-new 2014 vintage of the classic Stone Imperial Russian Stout, and one of the newest brews from Lagunitas: Fusion 19 American Brown Ale aged in High West Manhattan bourbon barrels!

You’ll also have the opportunity to taste some international gems from De Struise (Black Albert, Cuvée Delphine), BARREL-AGED De Molens (Cease & Desist: Bourbon Barrel, Hel & Verdoemenis: Bourbon Barrel, Hemel & Aarde: Bourbon Barrel + Goths & Vandals: Bourbon Barrels (the last a collab with the rare Swiss brewer Närke), Evil Twin Even More Jesus Imperial Stout, five Danish offerings from Mikkeller (George! Imperial Stout, Man in the Moon Bourbon Barrel, two iterations of Black Stout (Grand Marnier & Sauternes barrel-aged), & Beer Geek Brunch Weasel Imperial Coffee Stout (the elusive & excellent civet cat coffee version!), as well as Rooie Dop Double Oatmeal Stout (and this is the DC debut of Rooie Dop, an exciting new Dutch craft brewer)!

There is no admission for this event and all Ales from the Dark Side will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.
