From a press release:
DGS Delicatessen and DC Brau will collaborate on a new summer beer, the “Golden Calf.” The Belgium IPA will blend DC Brau’s Yonder Cities and DGS’s slivovitz plum mash. Slivovitz is a plum brandy with a rich history in Eastern Europe that DGS Beverage Director Brian Zipin crafts in the restaurant. Yonder Cities has a bright juicy grapefruit candy palate that is animated by the richness of the spiced plums. DGS Delicatessen partner Nick Wiseman says, “We are super excited to work with the guys at DC Brau. What could be better than putting beer and slivovitz together?”
The release party will take place on June 27th at DGS from 8-‐11pm (1317 Connecticut Avenue NW), during which there will be a celebratory tapping of the Golden Calf firkin. To complement the collaborative beer, Chef Barry Koslow has crafted a special food menu for the evening, including all beef hot dogs topped with DGS pastrami chili and DC Brau beer mustard alongside half sour pickles fermented in a Catoctin Creek whiskey barrel.
