Heurich Happenings

On March 1, 2024 from 6-8pm, celebrate the 90th anniversary of the end of Prohibition in DC with a tour, tasting, and opportunity to meet the people that make DC’s local craft beverages. Celebrate the city’s history of bootlegging with Jordan Cotton, owner of DC’s rum distiller, Cotton & Reed, and visit the kitchen to taste a limited-edition cask from Bluejacket brewery. 
If you happened to stop by 1921, a biergarten on the third Wednesday evening of the month during the summer you might have been surprised by what you saw. In addition to the usual craft beverages you might find beads, scissors, mod podge and decorative papers spread across the tables and people chatting away with neighbors they may not have known an hour ago. 

You know what pairs well? Craft Beer + Garden Crafts. This summer at 1921, a Biergarten, join us for a local craft beverage and free crafting every third Wednesday from 4-8pm.

 

From December 1-3, 2023, stroll through the museum’s festive holiday craft market with a Glühwein in hand and find the perfect holiday gifts for your loved ones. This year, Christmas Markt will feature 50+ local small-scale makers, a mini exhibit about our historic revival of the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co.’s Senate Beer, children’s ornament making, tour the historic home decorated for Christmas, and more.

The Heurich House Museum presents it’s 2nd annual Art All Night: Dupont Circle “Mini Markt” on Saturday, September 30, 2023 from 7pm-midnight in the Museum’s biergarten, 1921. Meet and shop from 10 local artisans and makers while exploring turn-of-the-century DC brewing history in our HOME/BREWED exhibit and enjoying a specially curated menu of beers from DC Brewers’ Guild members.

Liberty Apple Cider is back and the new vintage of Liberty is DRY-HOPPED with Citra, Mosaic, and Nelson* hops for the 1st time in over a century, bringing the recreation that much closer to full historical hoppy accuracy. Celebrate with Heurich House and ANXO at the official release party in the museum’s biergarten on Saturday, June 24th from 5-8pm.

Since the 1970s, Dupont Circle has been one of DC's “gayborhoods." Today, it is home to the Capital Pride block party and parade. Celebrate all month long at 1921, a Biergarten  with Pride beers, rainbow crafts, history from Rainbow History Project, music, and games. Use us as a landing place for pre- and post-parade festivities.
On March 16th, I had the opportunity to visit Valor Brewpub, which opened in 2018 on Barracks Row. During my visit, I was excited to speak with owner Gaynor Jablonksi and head brewer Jeff Hancock, co-founder and former head brewer of DC Brau, about the brewpub, the beers they have planned, and upcoming events.

In support of DC Statehood and a more emancipated District, shop from 5 Black owned local small artisan maker businesses while enjoying brews from 8 Black owned local beer brands in the Black Beer Garden. In DC, Emancipation still does not equal representation in the federal government after over 160 years.
