DC Brau Hell’s Bottom Oatmeal Stout Launches at ChurchKey, 5/16

DC Brau just loves to release new beers upon the welcoming public.  Last Friday, they set loose Ground Wolf.  This Wednesday, May 16th beginning at 6 pm, Churchkey is pouring the inaugural drafts of Hell’s Bottom Oatmeal Stout.  From the press release:

ChurchKey is pleased to be celebrating American Craft Beer Week with their friends at DC Brau as they roll out Hell’s Bottom, a delicious drinkable dark brew for late spring. Named for what was historically one of DC’s most notorious neighborhoods, Hell’s Bottom is an Oatmeal Stout that starts with a heavy roast character, a touch of bitterness, contributed by Northern Brewer hops, a smooth, creamy mouthfeel from the oats. The Hell’s Bottom is a lavish, yet restrained, dark ale that is absolutely perfect for the warmer months.

On Wednesday, six additional DC Brau brews will be tapped including the “Abbey” Stone of Arbroath, DC, made by fermenting the standard Arbroath Scotch Ale in oak barrels with a Belgian Abbey Ale yeast strain.

There is no admission for this event and all DC Brau drafts will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. pours.

The DC Brau Draft List:
Hell’s Bottom
“Abbey” Stone of Arbroath
Ground Wolf Session IPA
Penn Quarter Porter
The Citizen
The Corruption
The Public

I know you have a heaping helping of events to attend during this holy week of beer, but I strongly suggest that you find yourself at Hell’s Bottom.
