Idea brews, comes to a head to let beermakers offer tastings

Mr. Skall said DC Brau would run stringent ID checks and keep a list of guests to avoid repeat visitors on the same day, especially since their brewery tours would be free of charge.

Under the proposed law, breweries must cap their sample size at 12 fluid ounces, or the size of one beer can. DC Brau likely would provide 3-ounce portions of four different beers, Mr. Skall said.

The brewery is adjacent to another warehouse and a railroad bed, making it unlikely that anyone would even see the brewery, not to mention stumble onto private property “on 12 ounces of beer,” Mr. Thomas said.

Mr. Skall offered to meet with Ms. Grant’s constituency, and the pair exchanged contact information during additional testimony.

Mr. Graham’s committee must approve the bill before it is considered by the full D.C. Council.
