DC Beer

Pretty Things Beer expanding to D.C ! (@PrettyBeer)

Pretty Things is a gypsy type brewery that has a huge popularity surge over the past few years. Their motto is “Good Time Artisanal Beers” and everything I have tasted from these guys supports that mantra.

We learned just yesterday, that Legends Limited has finalized plans with Pretty Things Beer of  Cambridge, Massachusetts, and will bringing Pretty Things into the Washington, DC market very soon. Pretty Things is a gypsy type brewery, meaning they move from brewery to brewery to brew their beers. Their motto is “Good Time Artisanal Beers” and everything I have had from them supports that mantra.

As early as next week, we can start expecting limited offerings from Pretty Things. Initially expect to ONLY see bombers of Baby Tree and St. Botolphs.

Baby Tree is a big Belgian quadruple with plenty of raisin, fig, and Belgian esters.

St. Botolphs is English brown ale with malt and coffee and a balanced minimal hop presence.

By early July, we can expect to see their phenomenal  Saison, Jack D’ Or, in bombers as well. Not word on if and when draft offerings will be available.  But for now, enjoy the Baby Tree and St. Botolphs.

Given their lack of home based brew house and limited production capability, expanding into our marker is a huge vote of confidence, not only in Legends Limited, but in the D.C. beer market as well.  Pretty Things will be a great contribution to our ever-growing craft beer culture here, and I expect to see their popularity continue to grow as it has over the past few years.
