Drink of the Week: DC Brau The Public Pale

When we tasked contributing editor Joshua Bernstein with selecting a single beer to represent each of the 50 states for our current cover story, we knew we’d generate some suds-soaked banter with our readers. And one major topic of discussion has been the omission of a beer from Washington DC. So in honor of our nation’s capital, we give you today’s Drink of the Week—the Public Pale from DC Brau. The flagship ale of the District’s first brewery since Heurich shuttered in 1956, this canned beer is a thirst-quencher through and through, with fresh citrus aromas backed by subtle piney bitter and caramel malts on the finish.
