It’s time for merry shenanigans in the DC area, and that means an overflow of holiday events and the festive beers that come with them. Brandy sits down with friends from Red Bear Brewing, co-owner Bryan Van Den Oever and resident drag queen Desiree Dik. Bryan and Desiree spread holiday cheer as they announce Red Bear’s upcoming seasonal beers and events, including drag shows, a New Year’s Eve Drag Ball complete with go-go dancing, and the first ever Red Bear Brunch that’s hitting DC with a deliciously killer menu.

In other news, Mike, Brandy, and Jake celebrate National Lager Day, talk crazy American beers, and reveal a local DC beer that recently went through chemical analysis and approval to receive a very special title.
