Tomorrow: Washington DC Launch of Anchor Humming Ale
Featuring Anchor Brewing Company’s CEO John Dannerbeck
ChurchKey | June 2 | 6 O'Clock

Join us at ChurchKey as we welcome John Dannerbeck, CEO of Anchor Brewing Company, as well as a rarely seen offering from the brewery: Anchor Humming Ale. This will be the first time this wonderful, nuanced American Pale Ale will be available in DC! Originally brewed in 2009 as a commemoration of the opening of their new brewhouse (way back in 1979), this is a sessionable beer brewed with the amazing Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand; this hop offers delicious notes gooseberry and grass, and imparts an earthy, drying bitterness to the brew’s finish. We’ll be handing out a limited amount of free glassware as well.
