From DC Brau:
ll you metal fans will have a new beer to savor when Darkest Hour hits town this month. In honor of the band's 20th anniversary & the release of their 9th studio album, we teamed up with the guys for a collaboration we're calling SAVOR THE SWILL. This German-style Helles lager will be released on Saturday, February 11th in the tasting room during a Meet & Greet with the band!
Savor the Swill is a light, golden German lager with lively, natural carbonation that touts aromas of lightly-kilned malt, grain & cracker with a subtle herbal hop presence. A clean fermentation profile, low alcohol content (5% ABV), and a perfect ratio between the Czech Republic 2 Row Pilsner malt & Hallertau Mittelfruh hops contribute to this well-balanced, meticulously crafted, domestic interpretation of one of Germany's most delicate lagers.
The beer will be available in
limited release in can & on draft in the District only starting on Saturday, February 11th. Members of Darkest Hour will be at the brewery during growler hours to help introduce the beer with a special meet and greet. We'll have special STS glassware & t-shirts available during the event, and Mike Schleibaum will be curating the playlist in the tasting room throughout the afternoon.
