DCBW 2013 Events: Meridian Pint

DC Beer Week 2013 returns from August 11-18. Although we have day-by-day line-ups posted, it may also be helpful for the #DCBrews community to check out what some venues that are going above and beyond will be offering. Here are the events for Columbia Heights' Meridian Pint. For more of DCBeer's DCBW coverage, click here.

Sunday, August 11 from 4:00-10:00 PM – DC Brau / Stillwater / Pizzeria Paradiso / Meridian Pint Release “Exquisite Corpse” – A Disjointed Collaboration – Meridian Pint – 3400 11th Street NW

To celebrate DC Beer Week DC Brau, Stillwater, Meridian Pint, & Pizzeria Paradiso came together to assemble a beer based on the old Surrealist parlor game "Exquisite Corpse." The game, invented by Surrealists, has players write, in turn on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of the writing, and then pass it to the next player for a further contribution. This technique produces a disjointed, surreal collaborative effort.
 
The recipe follows the rules of this game. Each participant chose his respective part without the knowledge of the others’ choices. Greg Jasgur of Pizzeria Paradiso chose the grain bill, Sam Fitz of Meridian Pint the hops, and Brian Strumpke of Stillwater the yeast. Brewed by Jeff Hancock at DC Brau, the resulting beer is a session-able, Mosaic dry-hopped, rye Saison.
 
The beer will debut Sunday, August 11 at Meridian Pint and Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont Circle. To celebrate the collaborative beer the two restaurants will produce a four course beer dinner exemplifying the Exquisite Corpse technique. Patrons can chose to start at Meridian Pint or Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont Circle for their first two courses, one paired with a Stillwater beer the other with The Exquisite Corpse. For the next two courses patrons will then venture to the other restaurant for another round of pairings, one with a DC Brau beer and the other with The Exquisite Corpse.

And don't worry, you can fight that sour belly with free antacids available at the bar.
