Join us for the first History & Hops of 2016 as we feature Right Proper Brewing Company's new Brookland Production House! Located in Northeast DC, their tasting room offers a view of the brewery in a cozy space filled with reclaimed cherry wood and a slightly disturbing chalk art mural. The newest home for their soulful, balanced ales, the production house has increased their capacity from 5 barrels in their Shaw brewpub to 15 barrels. Head brewer Nathan Zeender and assistant brewer Ethan will be on site to serve:
Being There (Kellerbier) 5.0%This bready, floral, unfiltered beer is inspired by age-old German tradition. The beer is matured while the yeast is still active, producing a light effervescence with balanced malt and hop flavors present in the dry finish.
Baron Corvo (Biere de Garde) 7.0% This strong provisional farmhouse ale is fermented in 45 hl French oak foudres with house mixed-culture of wild yeasts. Amber-hued, vinous and malty with yeast derived fruit and spice.
Ornithology (Grisette) 3.9%This wheat-based ale is akin to the farmhouse brewing tradition from Southern Belgium. Lighter and more delicate than most saisons, Ornithology is the same recipe as the popular Ornette served at the Right Proper Shaw Brewpub & Kitchen, only it is fermented with house mixed-culture of wild yeasts in 45 hl French oak foudres that add a rustic complexity to the delicate flavors and aromas found in Ornette.
Admission fee includes tastings, snacks, and tours of the historic home of DC's most successful brewer, Christian Heurich. Guests must be 21 or older.
History & Hops is a monthly series at the Heurich House Museum, the former Dupont Circle home of D.C.'s brewmaster Christian Heurich (1842-1945). Every third Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, the museum partners with a local craft brewery for house tours and beer tastings. Guided tours through Heurich’s well-preserved Victorian mansion will discuss his brewery and the D.C. region’s rich brewing history. All proceeds benefit the preservation and growth of the Heurich House Museum. Guests must be 21 or older.
No refunds. Please be advised that we may refuse service to anyone who appears intoxicated upon arrival or during the event without refund.
