Meridian Pint first to sell new DC Brau beer starting today

For the first time since the 1950s, DC will have its own production brewery, DC Brau, and the first place that will sell its wares is Meridian Pint, starting today. Nice to see beer finally being brewed and bottled (or canned, in this case) in DC.

The brewers, Brandon Skall and Jeff Hancock, will be on hand to unveil their Public Pale Ale, which will be $4 from 5-8 pm and $5 afterwards. Meridian Pint will be the only place with the beer until Monday.

DCist reports there are other breweries on the way too, including Chocolate City, which some of the folks from Wonderland and Looking Glass are involved with, and Three Stars. I for one support this beer renaissance, and it's good timing that we have a good American beer bar to catch the trend.
