    DC Brau prides itself on being the first of its kind. For decades, our Nation’s Capitol lacked a brewery to call its own. DC Brau opened its doors in 2009, and was the first to brew and distribute beer within city limits since 1956. It didn’t take long for the trend to catch on. In the past few years, the city has become a verified beertopia, as brewers like 3 Stars, Atlas and Denizens moved to town. And those are just the breweries.

    Beer has become a fine art in this city, and restaurants all across DC are catering to young residents hungry for ever more unique and flavorful craft beers. From brewpubs like Biergarten Haus to large operations with in-house brewing like Bluejacket, Washingtonians now have an unprecedented amount of options when it comes to choosing a beer.

    But the District’s 50-plus-year dry spell ended four years ago, when friends Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock opened DC Brau. And the business ignited Washington’s brewing boom as others soon followed.
