Despite Christian Heurich's valiant effort to fight the temperance movement that has taken hold of this country, Senator Sheppard's newly introduced "Bone Dry Act" could force Prohibition on the District before the year is out. In preparation for this calamity and in celebration of his award-winning beer, Heurich's Lager, Mr. Heurich invites you to a celebration at his Dupont Circle mansion on Thursday, March 24, 1916 from 8 to 10 pm.
Mr. Heurich has secured the best jazz band to play from his musician's balcony and Mrs. Heurich has directed that all hors d'oeuvres be crafted with Heurich's Lager. Element Shrub has prepared the highest quality non-alcoholic mock-tails. Come dressed to impress in your best 1916 fashions. Gents, break out your top hats, gloves and canes. Ladies, get those hats and dresses ready! Heurich's Lager will be available for a limited time only; don't miss this opportunity to taste history.
For twenty of the most adventurous and important of guests, DC Brau head brewer Jeff Hancock will be available for a private tasting hour before the festivities begin.
Heurich's Lager is a historic re-creation of the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co.'s Lager Beer. The beer is brewed by DC Brau, the first production brewery in DC since the closing of Heurich's brewery in 1956. Heurich's Lager Beer was brewed from 1872-1956, the entire life of the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co., and one of their flagship beers. All proceeds from this event benefit the care and preservation of Heurich House Museum, the historic home of DC brewmaster Christian Heurich (1842-1945) and family. Your support ensures the museum is able to stay open to the public and can continue to provide educational programs. Experience this venerable institution of DC history firsthand. Guests must be 21 and older.
VIP admission include food, drink, souvenir glass, a one hour guided tasting with DC Brau head brewer Jeff Hancock and entrance to the museum at 7 pm. General Admission includes beer, food, souvenir glass and entrance to the museum at 8 pm.

About the Heurich House Museum: The Heurich House Museum preserves the legacy of Christian Heurich and enriches the cultural life of Washington, DC. The mansion was built from 1892-94 by German immigrant, local brewer, and philanthropist Christian Heurich (1842-1945). He and his family lived in their Dupont Circle home from its completion in 1894 until his wife’s death in 1956. Recognized as Washington, DC’s most successful brewer, he ran the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co., the city’s longest-operating brewery (1873-1956), until his death at 102. The mansion is notable for its fireproof construction, original interiors, and family collections. The museum, located at 1307 New Hampshire Avenue in Dupont Circle, is open for regular public events and public tours Thursday through Saturday at 11:30 am, 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm.
