DC Brau Presents: JIMMY VALENTINE’S TOTAL VICTORY A special release to commemmorate JV’s 10 year anniversary this is a crisp, smooth & easy pale weizenbock w/ light fruit flavors (think of it like a strong hefeweissen). Soft pear & hints of banana emerge as it warms but it remains a deadly-fast drinker for the 7.8% ABV. Tallboys of this limited release are available now at JV’s (1103 Bladensburg Rd, NE) & Miss Whiskey’s (1104 H St NE), & will hit the rest of DC next week for as long as it lasts. Our good friends at DC BRAU were incredibly kind to make this for us. ALL HAIL BROTHERS BRAU! BACK STORY: Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club has long held a special place in our collective soul. One of the true joys of running our own business is the opportunity to collaborate with friends, and we’ve been close with the folks at that infamous watering hole since before Brau was brewing. Jimmy V’s was born standing up and talking back, and May 28th, 2017, marks their 10 year anniversary. For all of the people that told us we were bananas to build our own brewery, this beer celebrates our lunatic friends who built a tiny unmarked bar past the NE DC frontier. Nothing trumps authenticity. TASTING NOTES: A naturally cloudy, pale-colored, bock-strength Weissbier that stands proud in the can. Full-bodied with an attractive rocky, white head that lends aromas of apricot, clove and faint banana. A creamy mouthfeel with flavors of spice and mild alcohol that warm up the senses in this rare interpretation of the classic German Weizenbock style. Cha, Cha, Cha!
