History & Hops at the Heurich House Museum continues on Thursday, July 17 when we feature Devils Backbone Brewing Company!
Started in 2008, Devils Backbone from Roseland, Virginia, has quickly established itself as a local favorite and as a preeminent brewery in the United States. Devils Backbone has earned medals at the World Beer Cup and the Great American Beer Festival (GABF), among other prestigious beer competitions. Notably, Devils Backbone won the GABF's 2012 Small Brewpub and Small Brewpub Brewer of the Year and the 2013 Small Brewing Company and Small Brewing Company Brewer of the Year.
The brewers will be serving:
Vienna Lager- Chestnut colored lager with a malty aroma and subtle toasty sweetness derived from a multi-stage mash. A pinch of noble hops gives this refreshing beer a clean finish. Gold Medal Winner at the 2012 World Beer Cup.
Turbo Cougar Blonde Bock- A strong gold lager for the unsuspecting prey, gold in color, medium body, a subtle malt character and a smooth finish you can really sink your teeth into!
8 Point IPA (cask)- Dry hopped with Citra and Centennial hops and aged on lemon peel
History & Hops is a monthly series at the Heurich House Museum, the former Dupont Circle home of D.C.'s most successful brewer Christian Heurich. Every third Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30pm, the museum partners with a local craft brewery for house tours and beer tastings.
Guided tours through Heurich’s well-preserved Victorian mansion will discuss his brewery and the D.C. region’s rich brewing history. All proceeds will benefit the preservation and growth of the Heurich House Museum. Guests must be 21+.
When & Where
Heurich House Museum
The Heurich House Museum preserves local Washington, DC history and educates the public through Christian Heurich's legacy and mansion. The mansion was built from 1892-4 by German immigrant, local brewer, and philanthropist Christian Heurich (1842-1945). Recognized as Washington, D.C.’s most successful brewer, he ran the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. until his death at 102. The mansion is notable for its technological innovations, original interiors, and rich archival collection of one of the most important local families.
The museum, located at 1307 New Hampshire Avenue in Dupont Circle, is open for regular public events and public tours Thursday through Saturday at 11:30 a.m., 1:00 and 2:30 p.m. Private tours and event rentals are also available. For more information, visit heurichhouse.org or call 202-429-1894.
