A few weeks ago everyone went crazy for Great Lakes Brewing Co.’s beer coming to DC. Well if you still haven’t had the chance to try them and be converted, tonight is the night.
Tonight at The Wine Specialist they will be pouring four of the Cleveland, Ohio brewery’s beer.
The beers will include:
Commodore Perry IPA: This India Pale Ale won a Gold Medal at the 2008 World Beer Championships. It’s a medium-bodied and well hopped beer with a dry, fruity aftertaste.
Elliot Ness Amber Lager: Also a gold medal winner, this one is an amber lager with rich, fragrant malt flavors balanced by crisp, noble hops.
Burning River Pale Ale: Ah industrialism, what a time to be alive. This beer is named after the infamous 1969 burning of the Cuyahoga River–once the most polluted river in the USA. The beer, hopefully not made from the river water, is an assertively hopped American Pale Ale with citrusy and piney Cascade hops.
Edmund Fitzgerald Porter: This one is a complex, roasty porter with a bittersweet, chocolate-coffee taste and bold hop presence.
Wine Specialist is at 2115 M Street in NW DC.
