Although we’re now in the midst of SAVOR Beer Week, which has brought a bunch of brewers from out of town into our fair city, it turns out that one of the DC area’s longtime beer producers and venues celebrates a milestone this week.

Capitol City Brewing Company will host parties this Tuesday, June 5 and Wednesday, June 6 to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The Tuesday party takes place at the downtown DC location (near Metro Center) from 7-10pm. On Wednesday, the party will move to Shirlington.

From a press release:

As part of this year’s anniversary festivities, Capitol City Brewing Company will host a total of six tapping parties in June, July and August. The downtown DC location will kick off the celebratory tapping party on Tuesday, June 5 and the Shirlington location on Wednesday, June 6 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. unveiling June’s exclusive beer of the month, the Oak Aged Fuel.

The special 20th anniversary beers include:

June – Oak Aged Fuel – The Oak Aged Fuel (9.5% ABV) is Capitol City’s signature Imperial Coffee Stout that has been aged in Jack Daniel’s barrels. Served in a 10 oz. goblet, the Oak Aged Fuel is full bodied with big dark malt flavors and a pleasant coffee aroma that is complimented by the oak and vanilla flavors from the barrel.

July – Rye IPA – Medium to full bodied, the Rye IPA (6.5% ABV) is an American style IPA made with the addition of Rye malt that lends spiciness to the flavor profile.

August – Summer Bock – The Summer Bock (7.5% ABV) is a German style lager with a deep golden color that is lightly hopped. In the tradition of Bock style beers, the alcohol is high but remains a lager with a smooth finish.

Additional 20th anniversary promotions include:
$20 dinner packages
$20 gift card on the 6th visit
20th anniversary shirts and pint glasses available for purchase
