American Craft Beer Week – DC Brau at Smith Commons

Thursday, May 19, was billed as “No Fermentation Without Representation!” night at Smith Commons. DC Brau founders Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock debuted their Corruption IPA and took a few minutes from meeting the masses to talk about their long-yet-rewarding journey to being DC’s first production brewery in a generation.

I’d like to thank NHK for the light, and the Red Sox for distracting everyone from Brandon and Jeff. Enjoy the video.

American Craft Beer Week at Smith Commons

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeaaaarrrrr…….

American Craft Beer Week is upon us. Fifty states, and The District, will feature special tastings and events throughout the week.  Smith Commons will be hosting DC’s celebration. Each event next week will spotlight a different American craft brewer and feature a different local tie-in.

Now, I could sit here and just rehash the schedule but that wouldn’t be much fun. Go check out CraftBeer.com’s ACBW section. And while you’re on the SC site, check the menu. You’ll be happy you did.

Ok, I’ll give a hint. You’ll be able to drink from Cleveland, Kalamazoo, Lyons, Milton, and DC itself. There might even be a surprise or two.

Reservations will be needed for event-specific enjoyment on Wednesday and Saturday.

Cheers!
