The wait is finally over! Red Bear Brewing has officially opened its doors!
Red Bear is starting off strong with everything you can want in a brewery, from a tasty draft list, to a lovely patio area where you can catch some fresh air with your pooch, to delicious food! Their kitchen won’t be open for another couple of months, but don’t you worry. Your tummy will be happy with all the amazing pop-up vendors they will host in the meantime.
Red Bear won’t be distributing for some time, so stay in the know on the craft beer scene by visiting them at 209 M Street NE, right near the uline arena. Growlers, Crowlers, and kegs will all be available for purchase on site along with positively alluring swag.
Have that pesky friend that doesn’t like beer? Well even they are in luck, as Red Bear will also have locally sourced wine, mead, cider, and soda on tap. They will even be serving a few craft cocktails! What better place to spend a happy hour with your pals?
Red Bear Brewing will be contributing more than just board games and tasty drinks, but will also be adding to diversity of ownership in the craft beer scene. That’s right, Red Bear is DC’s first brewery that is 100% redhead owned!
The name of the brewery was born as a culmination of the owners’ love of the outdoors, as well as references to their red hair and a slang term that slyly shows their pride as an entirely LGBTQ-owned brewery. They have been gracefully negotiating their place as trailblazers for a more inclusive craft beer community, even reaching out to other marginalized communities beyond the LGBTQ+. Their dedication to creating a safe space for all is truly heartwarming, and their dedication to creating delicious brews is truly bellywarming!
You never know what you’ll find at the first gay owned brewery in Washington DC, so check out all the upcoming shenanigans on their website calendar for more info, or follow them on social media for fun pics and interesting updates!
