This session of the monthly event is Thursday, June 20, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Heurich House Museum (1307 New Hampshire Avenue NW).
The History & Hops series takes place on the third Thursday of every month and features beer tastings from different local craft brewers while offering tours of the museum. The museum itself is the former home of Christian Heurich, DC’s most famous brewer, making the pairing more than perfect.
June’s Featured Brewery: Heavy Seas
According to the website for the Heurich House, “Heavy Seas founder/Maryland brewpub pioneer Hugh Sisson and Brewer Chris Mallon will present their signature Loose Cannon Hop3IPA in a firkin (cask), along with their just released Holy Sheet Uber Abbey Ale, which has been aged in brandy barrels. Other beers on deck will be Small Craft Warning Uber Pils, and Powder Monkey – a British style Pale Ale with a slight American twist in its hop profile.”
And on top of all that beer tasting and museum touring fun, all proceeds from ticket sales go towards conservation efforts at the museum. So you can enjoy this beautiful summer weather, taste some great local beers, tour a fascinating home/museum and support a local institution at the same time. It is truly a beautiful combination of things.
