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.

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.

Yesterday we brought you our review of Smith Commons. Today, as promised, we bring you the interview with Managing Partner/Beer Nerd Miles Gray. It’s a video that’s only audio (low light, need to learn how to make audio file from video file). Plus transcribing it would not only be a monumental pain in the ass, but wouldn’t accurately or honestly relay Miles’ passion for his job and the restaurant. Enjoy!
