Beer and live music go together like beer and sports, beer and cheese, beer and…everything good and right in this world.  Tonight, DC 9 is bringing together bands and beers from DC and NY – think of it as a two city lovefest for your eardrums and taste buds.

From 6:30 to 8:30, $20 gets you a taste of 10 fine offerings from DC Brau and Brooklyn Brewery:

DC Brau Public
DC Brau Citizen
DC Brau Corruption
DC Brau Penn Quarter Porter
DC Brau Wings of Armageddon
Brooklyn Lager
Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
Brooklyn Local Two
Brooklyn Sorachi Ace
Brooklyn Brewmasters Reserve

At 9 pm, check out a sneak preview of the SXSW DC/NY band showcase (March 17, 2012 at the Frontier Bar in Austin, TX) for just 8 bucks.  Playing are Brooklyn’s Deadbeat Darling and DC’s own Another Brother and Urban Cartel.
