CHURCHKEY DEBUTS SPAIN'S NÓMADA BREWERY - 10 RARE BREWS ON TAP!
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19TH @ 4 PM
Join us on Thursday, October 19th as we host the official Washington, DC debut of Nómada Brewing. On this night, we’ll tap the very first kegs ever in DC from one of Spain’s best craft breweries, a total of 10 different beers in all!
Located in the city of Sabadell, just north of Barcelona, Nómada was named one of the top breweries in the world in 2012 by RateBeer.com. Since then, they have continued to produce interesting, world-class beers while collaborating with some of the industry’s most exciting brewers, including Stillwater, Omnipollo and Freigeist.
Highlights from the evening’s list include Hanami, an India Pale Lager finished with yuzu, cherry blossoms and kombucha; Pasiflora, a passionfruit-infused Berliner Weisse; and New England Juicy Ale, a hazy, unfiltered IPA.
There is no admission fee for this event. All Nómada drafts will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.

Join us on Tuesday, October 24th as we host the official DC release of The Bruery Black Tuesday 2017, pouring for the very first time in DC. On this night, we’ll showcase 16 different drafts from the California brewery, including multiple vintages and variants of Black Tuesday!
One of craft beer’s most sought-after releases, Black Tuesday is aged extensively in Bourbon barrels, developing deep warming notes of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, dark fruit and oak. Perfect for aging, we’re thrilled to pour 4 different vintages of this inimitable brew, going as far back as 2011!
Not to be outdone, we’re also offering multiple variants of Black Tuesday, including PB & Thursday, Vindictive, Grey Monday, two versions of So Happens It’s Tuesday, Mélange #1 and Mélange #3.
Rounding out the list are two beers rarely seen on the East Coast - Loakal Red, an oak-aged hoppy Red Ale; and Off Shoot Conditions, a hazy, New England-style IPA hopped with Citra, Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial.
