With Ruby Lager, what’s old is new again!

DC Beer’s fourth 10-for-10 collaboration produces a dark Czech lager with Red Bear Brewing Company.

A beer that hasn’t been brewed in DC since before prohibition, Ruby Lager, is now back thanks to Red Bear Brewing Company. This is the fourth in the 10 beers for 10 years series to celebrate DC Beer’s 10-year history with 10 new beers.

Using Czech malts and hops, Red Bear has produced an immaculate lager; crisp, clean, and refreshing. We are of course biased but don’t take our word for it, get to Red Bear and try it for yourself. It will be available beginning Friday, December 20, when Red Bear opens at 1:00 PM — but join us for the release party at 4:00 pm.

The history of DC and Ruby Lager

The historic Washington Brewing Company, at 4th and F Streets NE, made a beer much like this one less than a mile from where Red Bear now stands.
