DC Brau has teamed up with Colorado’s Oskar Blues Brewery to release a limited-edition seasonal brew called Smells Like Freedom. The American IPA will be available for the first time tonight at 5 p.m. at Meridian Pint. The beer is an ode to Initiative 71, which legalized marijuana in the District. Smells Like Freedom has notes of “resiny, piney, earthy, sticky cannabis and white pepper with aromas of cannabis, tangerine, and sugar-coated ruby-red grapefruit.” There are only 120 barrels, which will be available in the can and on draft at bars and restaurants where DC Brau is available.
