DC Brau and Union Craft Brewing Team Up for CBC

Even more beer for the CBC! DC Brau proudly teams up with Baltimore’s Union Craft Brewing to bring the 4th installment of their Craft Brewer’s Conference 2013 lineup – Yonder Cities. This Farmhouse IPA means more to the two breweries than just another beer.

“Soon after returning from CBC 2011, DC Brau were one of the first breweries we reached out to when we were in our start-up phase and they received us with open arms, offering us great advice and friendship. Like our neighboring cities, our breweries are kindred spirits and we are very proud to have brewed this amazing beer with them. As both breweries continue to grow within our own cities, we look forward to many more exciting partnerships with our beltway brothers.” – Jon Zerivitz of Union Craft Brewing.

Other beers in DC Brau’s CBC lineup include Beggars and Thieves Anti-Imperial Ry Lager collaboration with Devils Backbone and The Brewer’s Art; Taster’s Choice collaboration with SKA Brewing and The Pietastes; and Colliding Hemispheres collaboration with Briess Malts and Hop Union. A draft only preview of Yonder Cities will be available March 16th at DC Brau and then city-wide in Baltimore and DC during CBC 2013.

This December, DC Brau (Washington D.C.) will begin canning On The Wings of Armaggedon Imperial IPA. A beer like that just doesn’t get tapped. It requires a “ceremony”.

DC Brau To Can “On Wings Of Armageddon”

DC Brau Brewing Co. (Washington, DC) will be canning On The Wings of Armageddon in December. Perfect for the end of the world right?  According to Mayan and Hopi calendars the “transition from one world age to another” will happen on December 21, 2012.

At first glance, it has an orange hue in the glass with a viscus, rocky head that refuses to dissipate. Upon first sniff there are dominate aromas of citrus, white grapes and grapefruit with light bread and biscut notes. After the first sip we taste a mellow bitterness that only grows as more is consumed. Moderately carbonated, deceptively smooth, refreshingly dry and extremely heady for a beer at 9.2% ABV.

Expect these bad boys shortly after the end of days. If we are still here that is…

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: Arrived in September, 2012 in 22oz bombers, Draft
Can Arrival: TBA

9.2% ABV
