Brandon Skall, founder of DC Brau and Luke Livingston of Baxter Brewing met a couple of years ago at the American Craft Beer Festival in Boston. Their breweries were founded about a year apart, and both can their offerings. Both breweries are even close to the ocean. Why not collaborate?
The result is a unique recipe, more like a dark IPA than a stout, brewed with precisely the same ingredients at both DC Brau and Baxter. Except that the DC version uses locally sourced Rappahannock Oyster Co. Olde Salt oysters, and the Maine version uses oysters from Glidden Point Oyster Company in the Pemaquid (ME) area.
The duo spent time each oysters on the water in Boston during their time at the festival. A perfect way to remember their meeting was to add oysters to the collaboration. 800 pounds worth, to be exact. DC Brau/Baxter Daughters of the Poseidon will be available in 16oz cans for a limited time.
