ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Hellbender Brewing Company, Washington DC, District of Columbia 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.Duration: 1 hourStop At: DC Brau Brewing, Washington DC, District of ColumbiaRanked 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 hourStop At: 3 Stars Brewing Company, Washington DC, District of ColumbiaKnown as “the lab”, back in 2009. What started as a homebrewing hobby evolved into a business, and they were able to open their doors at 6400 Chillum Pl in 2012. Doubling their production every year since they have been opened, 3 Stars Brewing has kept to their roots of “The Lab,” brewing experimental batches, and pushing the envelope on innovating new drinking experiences, like their popular Peppercorn Saison or Southern Belle Imperial brown ale with toasted pecans.Duration: 1 hourStop At: Port City Brewing Company, Alexandria, VirginiaTucked 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 hourStop At: Right Proper Brewing Company, Washington DC, District of ColumbiaRight 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.Duration: 1 hour
