THE SCHLAFLY IBEX SERIES: THE VARIANT DC RELEASE PARTY
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28TH @ 4 PM
Join us on Wednesday, June 28th as we host the DC release of Schlafly’s The Variant. On this night, we’ll feature a very limited keg of The Variant alongside a slew of Schlafly specialties, a total of 10 drafts in all!
The third release in Schlafly’s Ibex Rare series, and first since 2015, The Variant is a decadently rich Imperial Stout that is partially aged in Port wine barrels, and partially conditioned on fresh cocoa nibs. Released in extremely small quantities, this is one of only five kegs sent to the entire Mid-Atlantic region.
Rounding out the list are a number of Schlafly Tap Room beers that are perfect for the warm summer weather, including Schlafly Peach Saison, Schlafly Berliner Weisse and Schlafly Watermelon Lager.
There is no admission fee for this event. All Schlafly beers will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.
