Has it really only been a year since the city got its first taste of DC Brau? In that time, the spunky startup brewery - the first in Washington in half a century - has gone from a cult to near ubiquity, with its draft and canned beers available at about 300 establishments in D.C. and Virginia. Weekend tours at the upper Northeast brewery are packed, with lines out the door. There's a lot to celebrate on this first birthday, and DC Brau is returning to Meridian Pint, the scene of its first tapping party, for a blowout. Twenty DC Brau beers will be available on cask and draft for $5 each, including IPAs and Belgian ales aged in barrels from Virginia's Catoctin Creek and Copper Fox distilleries and kegs of DC Brau's collaborations with Epic, Stillwater and Oliver Ales. Word of warning: At the last DC Brau event at Meridian Pint, the line for admission ran down the block. Arrive on the early side or you'll miss out on some great brews.
