Of all of the breweries readying to open in the District, none has the buzz of Bluejacket, a collaboration between the Neighborhood Restaurant Group (the owners of ChurchKey and Rustico) and brewer Megan Parisi, formerly of the Cambridge Brewing Co. The brewpub won't open in a space near the Navy Yard until 2013, but Parisi and ChurchKey beer director Greg Engert have been crisscrossing the country to create Bluejacket beers in collaboration with some of the country's top breweries, including Florida's Cigar City and California's the Bruery and the Pizza Port. You can try the first five Bluejacket beers at ChurchKey this week, including a Scotch ale from Pizza Port, a Belgian quadruple ale made with plums at the Bruery, and Black Berliner Techno Weiss, a sour Berliner weiss made with dark roasted malt. Want to try them all? Make sure you order four-ounce taster glasses instead of full pours.
