Laetare Beer Tasting: DC Debut
Monday, March 4, 2013 at 6:30 PM (EST)
UPDATE (2/23): The tasting has been rescheduled for Monday, March 4th.
We monitor our beers closely and extract samples throughout the fermentation process that ensures that the product is at its highest quality when the time comes to bottle or keg the beer. In the past week we have watched closely as our fermentation was a affected by what we call "lazy yeast." The yeast (which actually ferments the beer) took more time than usual to become activated and begin the fermentation process.
We are so proud of our beers that we did not want to jeopardize their flavor characteristics by pouring beers that we did not believe were at their peak.
Founded in 2010, Laetare Brewing Company is the brainchild of Brian Donohoe and Casey Cavanagh. Laetare boasts hand-crafted beers drawing from traditional recipes with a new-age flair.
After beginning their careers in DC, the two have continued to brew and strengthen the vision of their brewing company.
Join them as they debut their beers in the District.
