Seems everyone is in the holiday mood around town, and yet another free beer tasting is on the calendar!  This particular tasting is in Falls Church (yes, a little outside of DC), but totally worth the trek when you hear what they’re pouring.


On December 17th, the guys from Red White & Bleu will be serving up tastes of Otter Creek’s Quercus Vitis Humulus (the latest in the Imperial Series), Russian Imperial Stout, Pale Ale, Copper Ale, and Wolaver’s Organic Alta Gracia Coffee Porter.

It’s a family affair with Wolaver’s and Otter Creek Brewing, from Vermont as these two companies work together.  In May of 2002, the Wolaver family purchased Otter Creek Brewing.  Otter Creek remains a family owned Vermont company and produces all Otter Creek and Wolaver’s brands for distribution throughout the country.

Additionally, they use natural Vermont water, locally sourced ingredients, and all Wolaver’s beers are made with at least 98% certified organic ingredients.  These pioneers have set an impressive standard for sustainable brewing.

Red White & Bleu is located at 127 South Washington Street, in Falls Church, VA, just down the street from the State Theatre.  This tasting is from 5-8 PM on Thursday, December 17th.
