Waredaca Brewing Company FeBREWary Tap Takeover

February 21 | 6:00 pm – close | Beer prices vary

Republic | 6939 Laurel Ave | Takoma Park, MD

Waredaca Brewing Company is participating in FeBREWary Tap Takeover at Republic in Takoma Park. Meet the brewers, check out limited edition beers, and more from 6:00 pm to close! Waredaca has also released their new Double Chocolate Porter – specially brewed with Ghirardelli Dutch cocoa powder, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, cacao nibs, chocolate malt, and lactose. A full-bodied and roasty porter, with a silky mouthfeel, this beer has loads of chocolate flavor without being sweet, and the rich chocolate flavors complement the roast beautifully. As always, they utilize local ingredients as often as possible, and this one is no different with a portion of the base grain coming from our neighbors at Mullinix Malting Co.
