The Brau Team will be here to rap about their beer and give away swag that is some of the best this bar has ever seen!

    Meh. An $8 “Oktoberfest” beer from a brewery located here in DC or $6 or $7 for one from Germany where they actually know what they’re doing (and the beers taste like water because they’re supposed to, not because they’re watered down)… If this brewery ever adjusts it’s prices to match their subpar quality maybe then I’ll be interested.

    • It would be nice to know if DC Brau was overpriced because of high operating costs, or just because they know people in DC will pay $12 for a 6-pack of local beer.

      • Economics my friend. As well as personal taste. Further understanding of these concepts will provide the answers you may or may not seek.

        It’s certainly more expensive to operate here than say Kalamazoo, Michigan, but that hasn’t stopped almost every other DC brewery who isn’t trying to mass market themselves from producing a better product for the same price (or less).

  • DC is so enamored with it’s (crappy) local brewery. I haven’t liked a single DC brau beer I’ve tried and don’t know many others that like them. Too bad they can’t tap a good MD beer like Flying Dog or Heavy Seas.

  • More like beer logic.

  • Brewers don’t set the price of beer, distributors and retailers do. Per unit costs scale on volumes sold, so smaller volume brewers will cost retailers more. Deschutes and Stone are much much larger operations. The fact that you are getting their beer in regular grocery stores thousands of miles from their “home turf” should tell you they are operating at a different scale than the local guys. Distributors hold most of the cards in the transaction, so blame them for prices and blame the brewery if you don’t like the beer.

  • DC Brau beer is garbage. I’d never go out of my way to buy it. All of their beers are very average and not exciting. 3 Star is easily the best brewery in DC. Port City is also a very close second. The one beer I do give DC Brau credit for is OTWOA. Everything else is Meh.

    • Gotta say I’m a huge fan of both BrauPils and the Tradition, if they still make the latter (please!). Stone of Arboath (sp?) is pretty good as well.

    • I like DC Brau but I have to agree 3 stars is brewing some really amazing beers. Love the saison.

  • DC Brau, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE put the umlaut over the “a” in your Brau!!!
