What You'll Get
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Hellbender Brewing Company, 5788 2nd St NE, Washington DC, DC 20011-2524
This handsomely-helmed DC brewery got its name from the Eastern Hellbender Salamander, which is the largest salamander in North America, and the third largest in the world! So, it’s safe to say that their beers boast BIG flavors. But they don’t just brew killer ales, they do it in an environmentally sound, super-efficient way using their hammer mill and mash filter to protect the earth from harsh effects and you from bad beer. Unlike any brewery on the east coast, Hellbender Brewing is able to use less grain and less water for all of its brews but brings you more flavor than you can even imagine. Let us take you on a behind the scenes tour of this brewery’s unique process and walk you through the science of why less really is more, and what makes Hellbender a must visit on any Washington, DC trip. Bonus: You’ll be able to tell everyone you’re a sustainable beer drinker, which basically means you’re imbibing for the greater good. So go on and feel awesome about yourself, you environmentally-conscious inhabitant of earth you.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: DC Brau Brewing, 3178 Bladensburg Rd NE Ste B, Washington DC, DC 20018-2214
Ranked one of the top breweries in our nation’s capital, DC Brau is the OG of local DC beer. They’ve been brewing the area’s best ales since the 1950s, and were the first brewery to brew and distribute beer within Washington, DC. Now, DC Brau has been designated one of the fastest growing breweries in the USA, and their commitment to excellence has been going strong for over fifty years. You’ll taste the dedication as our expert guides walk you through DC Brau’s canning process and how they churn out their award-winning brews year and after. And don’t forget to grab a growler for the after party to keep the fun brewing all night long.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Port City Brewing Company, 3950 Wheeler Ave, Alexandria, VA 22304-6409
Tucked at the western most tip of Washington, DC, Port City Brewing Company is Northern Virginia’s most notable brewery. We know what you’re thinking… Virginia?! I thought this was a DC Brew Tour. And you’re right, but you may not know that Alexandria, VA is only a stone’s (bottlecap’s?) throw away from DC, and they’re churning out some of the most incredible craft brews that we just had to feature them on the tour. And to show us some love for including them, they’ve generously offered our tour-goers special samples and beers that are exclusive to the brewery and pack such a malty pinch, you may even forget you’re on planet earth. In fact, their beer is so good it earned them Best Small Brewery in America in 2016.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Right Proper Brewing Company, 920 Girard St NE, Washington DC, DC 20017-3424
Right Proper Brewing Company started as a vision that centered around DC as a hometown, with each neighborhood defined by a different culture. A vision of heading to your local pub to grab a fresh glass of beer that was brewed on premise. A vision that would be defined by the yeasts used to ferment the beer, as opposed to the hops used to bitter it.
This vision belonged to Thor Cheston, a DC Native who ditched medical school at Georgetown University to follow a passion for beer. After meeting John Snedden, owner of Rocklands BBQ, the two of them realized they had aligned visions, and opened their Brewpub: Right Proper. Right Proper Production Brewery followed, and allowed them to share their beers with DC restaurants, and still be a part of the community!
