Part of DC Beer Week

Scion and Crios Modern Mexican will offer 24 different hoppy, bitter beers with a twist: They won’t tell you what they are. Neither the name of the beer, nor the brewery, will be listed on the menu. Guests will choose from 24 beers based solely on minimal tasting notes.

To help with the party, DCBeer.com invited 12 of their favorite breweries, each bringing two of their finest hoppy ales. 

To make it more interesting, each brewery also agreed to participate in a winner-take-all contest, decided by popular vote. They’re asking you, the customer, to help choose a winner by voting for your favorite beers of the night. 

Guests may vote once per hour, maximum 3 votes. Representatives from participating breweries will be in attendance. Each beer will be available in both full and 4 oz. tasting portions.

Here’s a the list of participants: 

  • Ballast Point
  • Boulevard
  • Bell’s
  • DC Brau
  • Elysian
  • Evolution
  • Flying Dog
  • Founders
  • Oskar Blues
  • Port City
  • Victory
  • Uinta
