Via the Washington City Paper‘s Lagerheads comes the important announcement that Chocolate City Brewing Company will, at long last, be launching its beer next week during DC Beer Week.

The event will take place at RFD next Thursday, August 18 starting at 9pm.

According to the Lagerheads’ Tammy Tuck, although Chocolate City has brewed both their flagship Big Chair IPA and ESB, the beers available at the launch party won’t be known until head brewer Ben Matz has a chance to taste them and pass them through quality control.

No matter what beers are on-hand at RFD, Chocolate City beers will be $4 all night, DJ O’School will be on-hand to provide some great music, and the DC beer community will rally around its newest production brewery. Be sure to stop by RFD’s back room and have a pint!
