Valor Brewpub, Capitol Hill’s new Veteran-inspired restaurant and brewery debuts its first batch of in-house brews to the public on Friday, May 3.
Valor launches its in-house beer program with four core beers:
A German-style ale that is a light straw-colored brew with slight bready notes and a crisp earthy hop character.
ABV %5.0 IBU 18
Deep Dive Northwest IPA
A well balanced and not bitter North West style IPA that has a strong malt backbone but bursts with juicy hop flavors. Citra, Amarillo and Galaxy hops lend to aromas and flavors of pineapple, orange, and guava. ABV %6.0 IBU 60
Two Tank Vienna Lager
This German-style amber lager showcases rich malt flavors of caramel, toffee and a touch of chocolate and just enough Saaz hops to keep it balanced.
ABV% 5.5 IBU 20
An American style Brown Porter featuring roasted malt flavors mingled with bittersweet dark chocolate. Centennial and Cascade hops help accentuate the malt flavors and round out this tasty brew.
ABV %5.5 IBU 24
Renowned Brewmaster and veteran Greg Maddrey who has earned medals for his beers in the World Beer Cup, Great American Beer Festival, and the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild Awards leads Valor’s beer program. He says, “I spent my Navy days as a Hospital Corpsman so I like to say I’m providing a different kind of medicine. I’m glad to finally be bringing my own type of ‘healing’ to Valor.”
Valor’s first in-house brews are available to the public Friday, May 3. Weekly beer specials launch the following Monday, May 6. Every Monday select beers costs $4. On Tuesdays, it’s a burger and a beer for $12 featuring a burger of the month, a veggie burger and the popular Valor burger, made of Halpern Farm Ground Beef Blend, Smoked Cheddar, Local Tomato, Arugula, Smoked Bacon, Mushroom, and Griddled Onion.
