New and Now Availables is a weekly(?) feature here at DCBeer.com. In an effort to keep readers informed about the newest beers (local and otherwise) appearing in the market and on beer menus, we’ll be sharing the beer submissions we get from breweries and brewpubs. These may be brand new beers or they may be beers returning to rotations (e.g., seasonals, limited releases), or they may be one-offs. Notably, this list isn’t comprehensive, but really how could it be? It relies on submissions from breweries. Are you a brewery with a beer you’d like to see here? Use our form. Cheers and thanks for reading!
