DC Brau Brewing
August 31, 2012
WASHINGTON, DC - An error in the brewing of DC Brau's celebrated Double IPA, On the Wings of Armageddon, has led to the development of a new beer. The brew, also a Double IPA, is similar in body and taste to its progenitor while differing immensely in color and hop profile. CEO Brandon Skall expressed disappointment that fans of On the Wings of Armageddon would have to wait another few months for the much sought after beer, but in the same breath noted that he was excited to welcome this new brew to the DC Brau family. "Sometimes you have to embrace blunders," said Skall. "In this case, our mistake lead to something delicious and badass, so while we're upset about the error in OTWOA brewing, we're happy it led to Deus Ex Machina."
Deus Ex Machina, taken from the Latin phrase meaning "God from the Machine," weights in at 8.75% ABV and 131 IBUs. It's hopped with Falconer's Flight and Columbus varieties, which come together to create a virtual pine forest of super dank, mouth-coating flavors with underlying hints of delicate sugar-coated fruit. The brew-in-error is a beautiful crystal clear golden orange in color. The brewers noted that Deux Ex Machina would be a limited-release beer, and would be available starting this Saturday, September 1st, during "growler hours" at the brewery from 11 am to 4 pm.
