Four of the top breweries in DC have been barrel aging an ale for a minimum of one month. On Tuesday the 27th, these breweries will unveil their concoction at the Boundary Stone. There will be judges and a popular vote to calculate who will take home the trophy, as well as win a dedicated line for a year on our back bar. Admission is $20 ahead of time or $25 at the door, which will get you a 5oz tasting from each brewery, and a pint of “5-Spot”!
The breweries battling will be DC Brau Brewing Company, Atlas Brew Works, 3 Stars Brewing Company, and defending champs Port City Brewing Company.”
“The Pub & The People has just hired rising star sous chef Ben Schramm from one of DC’s top restaurants, Proof!
Schramm studied culinary arts at L’Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, MD, and launched his culinary career at Proof, rising from salad station worker to executive sous in that time, working closely under executive chef Haidar Karoum. Schramm is thrilled to join the P&P team, and has big plans for the Pub’s menu, adding inventive food while still continuing the inclusive, neighborhood atmosphere. Schramm is excited to pair his love for his own local watering hole with his passion for creativity in cooking.”
