Washington, DC - In celebration of Halloween, DC Brau Brewing Company cranked up the Misfits and brewed a Belgian Quad in their honor. The beer, named Ghoul's Night Out after the Horror Punk progenitors famous song, was brewed with 68 pounds of raw honey from Burnside Farms in Haymarket, Virginia. Besides the honey, the 10.5% ABV beer features rich notes of fig, date, caramel, plum, golden raisins, and toffee. Simcoe Hops are the only variety featured in the beer. DC Brau's house Belgian yeast strain provides a crisp, dry finish.
"We rock out to the Misfits all the time in the brewery; it was only a matter of time before we named a beer after them," said DC Brau CEO Brandon Skall. "And on Halloween, who better to honor than the Crimson Ghost rockers themselves?"
The draft-only, limited-release beer debuted at Spirits in Black, a monthly heavy metal and cocktail party, at Dodge City on October 30th, but will not be available citywide until early next week.
When co-founders Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock opened the doors to their brewery in 2011 on Blandensburg Road in NE Washington, DC Brau Brewing Company became the first packaging brewery inside the District of Columbia since 1956. DC Brau’s signature brews include: The Public (Pale Ale), The Corruption (IPA), The Citizen (Belgian-style Ale), Brau Pils (German-style Pilsner), and Penn Quarter Porter (Robust Porter), with seasonal and special brews available throughout the year including the award-winning On the Wings of Armageddon (Double IPA).
