American Craft Beer Week in Gaithersburg
Old Town Pour House - Gaithersburg212 Ellington Blvd., Gaithersburg, MD 20878
American Craft Beer Week is back! We're one of the few Gaithersburg bars / restaurants in Downtown Crown that's celebrating ACBW, and we have chosen to offer special something to elevate your beer and food pairing experience...
We will be tapping Allagash Victor and Victoria limited release beers. From the brewers:
Victor Ale lets us blur the lines between brewer and vintner. The brew begins by mashing in two thousand pounds of Pilsner malt with five hundred pounds of Cabernet Franc grapes. It’s then hopped with Hallertau. The beer is fermented first with a strain of wine yeast, then finished with Belgian abbey-style yeast. Victor Ale presents a pale copper hue, medium body, a pronounced vinous character, and a spicy, tart finish.
Its beer sibling Victoria uses Chardonnay grapes and goes through a similar process. The result is a beer with golden highlights, a fruity nose, and a long complex finish.
