Jim Rebar / Wednesday, January 23, 2019 / Categories: Items of Interest Cheers to SIOP Annual Conference! SIOP Administrative Office Hop on board for the SIOP 2019 Brewery Tour and see two of National Harbor's breweries with City Brew Tours. The tour includes: Hellbender Brewing Company DC Brau Brewing Company Hellbender Brewing Company Made fresh with a Belgian-made mash filter, the Hellbender Brewing Company brews beers using less water, grain, and energy to reduce their impact on the planet. The brewery says the mash filter is super efficient. "A normal brew system will extract 70%-80% of the starches from the grain. The mash filter will extract 98%, thereby needing on average 15% less grain, 20% less energy and 30% less water to make the same amount of beer!" Learn more about the mash filter process during this stop of the tour. DC Brau Brewing Company When DC Brau Brewing Company opened in 2011, the brewery became the first packaging brewery inside the District of Columbia since 1956, blending North American and European techniques and ingredients. This award-winning brewery's signature brews include The Public (Pale Ale), The Corruption (IPA), and The Citizen (Belgian-style Ale) but with 26 beers, there's something for everyone.
