From an email:

“Canteen, NRG’s roving summer beer garden, will return this Friday, June 9th.

This summer, it’s home will be at 9th & U streets in Shaw, where it’ll run Thursdays-Sundays for eight weeks. As you know, Canteen was stationed at 2100 M Street serving the Golden Triangle community last year. We’re excited to bring the beer garden to 1923 9th street NW in Shaw, and make it bigger and better with 20 beer drafts (twice as many as last year) as well as two additional handles dedicated to ciders, a selection of summer sipping wines (white and rosé, naturally), and the infamous bourbon slushy will return.

Last year at 2100 M Street, NW

Guests can expect the very best craft beers sourced locally, nationally, and from overseas. We will be pouring classic German-style lagers, like Mahrs Bräu Kellerbier Ungespundet Hefetrüb; bone-dry Belgian ales, including De Ranke Simplex and De la Senne Taras Boulba; outstanding local hop-driven offerings, The Veil’s Sitdwn and BHUMBL among them, not to mention a fresh, rare keg of Double Dry-Hopped Sungazer, from Charles Towne Fermentory in South Carolina; and some delicious sours, like Grimm Cube: Cuvee #4, J.Wakefield Stush, and Upland Cursed Kettles.

Here is the Canteen opening list so far:

Bluejacket Forbidden Planet (Galaxy Dry-Hopped Kölsch)
Charles Towne Fermentory Double Dry-Hopped Sungazer (IPA)
De Ranke Simplex (Belgian Blond Ale)
De la Senne Taras Boulba (Belgian Blond Ale)
Grimm Cube: Cuvee #4 (Oak Barrel-Aged Sour Blond Ale with Lemongrass,
Chamomile & Motueka Hops)
J. Wakefield Stush (Berliner Weisse)
Mahrs Bräu Kellerbier Ungespundet Hefetrüb (Kellerbier)
Ocelot Loaded Questions (IPA with Citra & Kohatu Hops)
Singlecut Softly Spoken Magic Spells (Imperial IPA)
The Veil BHUMBL (Imperial IPA with Citra & Enigma Hops)
The Veil Sitdwn (IPA with El Dorado & Galaxy Hops)
Upland Cursed Kettles (Oak BA Sour Red Ale with Figs & Black Cherries)

Red Apron will once again curate a few food items, but we’re also planning on having local food trucks join us all summer long. Plus, given the amazing offerings by our new neighbors, we’re encouraging Canteen guests to bring in outside food from spots like Kyrisan, Glenn’s Garden Market, and Haikan.

Canteen will open at 4pm on Thursdays & Fridays and at noon on Saturdays & Sundays.”
