DC Brau / DC United The Tradition

Brewed by DC Brau Brewing Company
Washington DC, Washington DC USA
5% Golden Ale/Blond Ale | 27 Ratings | 15 IBU | Special Release |
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.”
