The Red Hen Collaborating with DC Brau and Linden Vineyards to Offer Limited Release Draft Beer

1st and Seaton Pl, NW

From a press release:

On Tuesday, June 11th, The Red Hen will tap its first keg of “Sailing the Seas of Lees,” a limited release draft beer made in partnership with DC Brau Brewing Company and Linden Vineyards.

Sebastian Zutant, co-owner and beverage director for The Red Hen worked with long-time friends Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock of DC Brau to create a unique, farmhouse ale, aged for six weeks in oak barrels provided by Winemaker Jim Law of Linden Vineyards in Linden, VA.

“I’ve known Brandon and Jeff for a long time, and have been a huge fan of their beers. It was only a matter of time until we’d find a way to work together,” says Zutant. “Given my predilection towards wine, I thought it would be interesting to find a role for it in the beer making process. Jim Law at Linden has been a trendsetter for Virginia winemaking and we knew he’d be a natural fit; we were all excited to see how a local wine/beer collaboration would turn out.”

As part of the experiment, they aged the brew over Law’s hardscrabble Sauvignon Blanc lees. The result is a juicy, citrus-flavored Saison with a minerality that resembles a cider, or dry white wine.

The limited release “Sailing the Seas of Lees” will be available at The Red Hen beginning June 11th for $7 per glass, and will be offered until all eight sixtels of the brew are gone.
