The first brewery within the Washington DC city limits since 1956, the DC Brau Brewing Company features an eclectic selection of brews available both year-round and seasonally.
Barcode is happy to offer DC Brau’s January 2012 seasonal offering of ‘Thyme After Thyme,’ a strong, Belgian winter ale.
It features a zesty orange rind and herbal aroma; white grape and subtle, herbal character; mild warmth on the tail end of the finish; and added orange peel and thyme. The 9% alcohol, draft-only brew is a well balanced spiced ale perfect for lounging.
DC Brau offers nine different brews, three of which are served year round. Located in NE DC near NY Avenue, the brewery hit it big during St. Paddy’s Day 2011 and hasn’t looked back since!
Lost Rhino, located in Ashburn, VA, brings its Rhino Chaser Pilsner (5.6%) to Barcode this winter. Formerly at Old Dominion brewery, Rhino’s founders moved a mile down the road and started their own thing when the original plant moved to Delaware.
A rich, golden lager with a creamy head and sweet backbone, the Rhino Chaser Pilsner features grassy, fresh aromas, no bitternes and a smooth aftertaste.
Lost Rhino currently offers 5 distinct brews and sponsors community events through Northern Virginia!
