DC Beer Week: Atlas Brew Works Releases Town & Country at Dupont & Georgetown, August 20

DC Beer Week: Atlas Brew Works Releases Town & Country at Dupont & Georgetown, August 20

Town and Country, the first beer from Atlas’ barrel program, is a Belgian Strong Ale aged nine months in Virginia red wine barrels. Developed in partnership with Boxwood Estate Winery in Middleburg, VA, and aged exclusively in French oak barrels which previously held their world-class Bordeaux varietals, Town and Country blends old-world tradition and new-world innovation in a beer which will surprise and delight the palate. Fruit notes are pronounced, a product of both the unique Belgian yeast used for fermentation and the barrels’ rich history. A strong tannic body and significant alcohol foundation provide a sturdy canvas for flourishes of oak, tobacco, grape, and grain.

Visit either of our DC locations to try this release as well as three other Atlas drafts: District Common, Rowdy Rye, and NSFW. Happy hour pricing applies!
