Beerfest? At a coffee shop? Say yes - to Chinatown Coffee Co. The shop will host a “Summer Beer Fest” event in celebration of its summer menu of beer on Friday July 22nd from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event will feature $2 cans of the DC Brau Brewing Company’s Public Ale and a 25% discount on its featured summer beer list.
DC Brau Brewing Company was founded in 2009, and is the first production brewery to be based in the District since 1956. Co-founders Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock have extensive experience in the restaurant and brewing businesses, and have combined their shared knowledge to create a unique beer that DC can call its own.
Other beers that will be featured in Chinatown Coffee Co.’s Summer Beer Fest include Victory’s Golden Monkey of Downingtown, Pa.; Bell’s Oberon Ale of Kalamazoo, Mich.; Great Lakes’ Eliot Ness of Cleveland, Ohio; and Anderson Valley’s Summer Solstice of Boonville, Calif.
Assistant General Manager Josh Croston said, “DC Brau’s Public Ale is a great beer and is by far one of my favorites. The Public Ale is a smooth pale ale with a nice crispness from its abundance of hops. Chinatown Coffee Co. is always looking for local DC businesses to support and I know we are all very excited to offer DC Brau’s Public Ale to our customers at the Summer Beer Fest event.”
