DC Beer

ChurchKey says, “Je t’aime, bière françaises”

France is famous for its wines, and justly so, but people seriously sleep on their bière.  The French are all about gustatory satisfaction and if you take a quick gander at a map, you’ll see that the nation is in some good geographic company beer-wise (here’s looking at you, Germany and Belgium).

On Friday, August 24th at 6pmChurchKey is showcasing a Gallic star: Brasserie Bourganel.  The top notch, little-known producer will be making its DC debut and its Export Manager, Hubert Pommier, will be on hand to hold court and generally dish knowledge.  From the press release:

Bourganel is a small, independent craft brewery from the Ardeche nestled in the Rhone-Alps region north of Provence, and one that has been turning heads since its inception in 2000. In addition to crafting outstanding lagers, Bourganel is careful to incorporate a host of the very finest ingredients grown-locally in the Ardeche, including some of the most sought-after Chestnuts in the world…unsurprisingly, these beers are knock-outs when it comes to food pairing!

No admission fee for the event. All Bourganel brews will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasters.

The Brasserie Bourganel Draft List:
Bourganel aux Marrons – Amber Lager brewed w/ Local Chestnuts & Vanilla; 5% abv
Bourganel au Nougat – Blond Lager brewed w/ Locally-Produced Nougat; 5% abv
Bourganel au Miel de Chataignier – Blond Lager brewed w/ Local Chestnut Honey; 5% abv
Bourganel aux Myrtilles – Amber Lager brewed w/ Local Bilberry Juice; 5% abv
