The next session of History & Hops features Heavy Seas Beer from Baltimore, a brewery that produces a wide range of extrARGHdinary beers and is also the country’s cask ale leader.
Heavy Seas founder/Maryland brewpub pioneer Hugh Sisson and Brewer Chris Mallon will present their signature Loose Cannon Hop3IPA in a firkin (cask), along with their just released Holy Sheet Uber Abbey Ale, which has been aged in brandy barrels. Other beers on deck will be Small Craft Warning Uber Pils, and Powder Monkey - a British style Pale Ale with a slight American twist in its hop profile.
“With a personal family history as Maryland’s first brewpub, to be holding an event at the home of DC’s most noted brewer has particular significance and resonance for Heavy Seas. We are thrilled to be part of History & Hops at the Brewmaster’s Castle, and hope that everyone will be able to join us in enjoying some great beers while we tip our caps to the Heurich legacy,” says Sisson.
Heurich House staff and volunteers will provide tours of the Brewmaster's Castle with a focus on its owner and the history of the historic Chr. Heurich Brewing Co.
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.
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.
