DC BRAU - Washington DC's First Brewery Since 1956
The Stone of Arbroath / Stone of Arbroath Abbey™

Stone of Arbroath has a rich, sweet malty aroma with mellow notes of plum and brown sugar. The mouthfeel has a "mineral-like" softness with highlights of deep caramelized malt derived from a 90 min boil which encourages caramelizing of dense wort sugars complemented by a subtle roast character that finishes with a mild acridity that pleasantly coats ones mouth. Coming in at a warming and subdued 8% ABV it will definitely ruffle many a kilt this spring.

The Stone of Arbroath Abbey takes this one step further! The first modern development in Arbroath was the Abbey which was founded in 1178. As a tribute to the history of Arbroath we barrel fermented 120 gallons of “The Stone of Arbroath” in oak casks and pitched our house Abbey Ale yeast strain.

Both The Stone of Arbroath and The Stone of Arbroath Abbey will be available in 22oz bottles - though the barrel fermented version will be limited to 638 bottles only.

Bottle Factoids:

  • 2012: "For centuries the Drosten Stone has remained shrouded in mystery. Scholars can not agree on the ancient origin of the rock. The inscription “DROSTEN: IPEUORET [E]TTFOR CUS is just as much of an enigma as the stone itself. This beer, as well, is such a conundrum. Please don’t ponder it’s existence for centuries as you would assuredly go insane. Just be happy that it exists."
