American Craft Beer Week started Monday and ends this Sunday, May 20. To celebrate, one nearby brewery is bringing the suds to DC during the month of May.

DuClaw Brewing Company, based in Bel Air, Maryland, is expanding its selection to the District and Northern Virginia, and is hosting a launch party at the Big Hunt on May 24. The Big Hunt bartenders will be pouring from the tap and the DuClaw crew will be on hand to answer questions and give away prizes.

Additionally, DuClaw just named the winner of their 2nd Annual H.E.R.O. Homebrew Contest. Vincent and Suzanne Powers of Nottingham, Maryland clinched the title with their Chocolate Chipotle Stout, which will be brewed and available this fall everywhere DuClaw is sold.

The brewery is now searching for the charity to receive all the proceeds from the sale of Chocolate Chipotle Stout. Anyone is free to nominate a charity or organization by June 30 by emailing hero[AT]
