Revisiting Old Friends, a Beer Tasting @ CCWS | Arlington | Virginia | United States

Today we are revisiting some old friends on the Tasting Bar! These are beers from some of the oldest craft breweries around, either some of their new releases that you shouldn’t pass up, or some of our old favorites that we don’t you to lose the race to grab the newest thing on the shelf. Come out and get reacquainted with some old friends today from 5-7p …

The Beers:

  • Devils Backbone Vienna Lager: This old favorite is a perfect beer for summer. Not heavy but with a nice toasted caramel flavor without much bitterness. 5.2% abv, 18 IBUs
  • Sam ’76: Sam Adams and the Boston Beer company is often seen as the stuffy old uncle in the corner of the Craft Beer room trying to play with all of the cool kids new toys. On the other hand, their size and resources allow them to do things that smaller breweries cannot do. Sam ’76 is the result of over a year of test batches to determine when to combine the co-fermentation of lager and ale yeasts to get just the right flavor profile before dry-hopping during the, still active, fermentation. The result is a nice low abv, sessionable beer, that twists the divide between ale and lager. 4.7% abv, 12 IBUs
  • Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout: Duck-Rabbit has been around since 2004 and our owner, Thad, has been drinking their beers since some of their first batches! It was on many of their dark beers (since they are “The Dark Beer Specialist”) that he cut his teeth in the craft beer world. This milk stout was one of his favorites and that preference has never really left him. A traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar), it has a subtle sweetness and fullness of flavor balanced by the highly roasted grains that give this delicious beer its black color. 5.7% abv
