Mike Roy —brewer for Franklin's Restaurant and Brewery— exuberantly describes Ludicrous, his 6.3% alcohol-by-volume sour mashed rye saison, served from a cask.
His was one of 11 local breweries —in the tri-state Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area— to bring cask ales to the District Chophouse Brewery and Restaurant for Cask Night, an event organized by longtime Chophouse brewer Barrett Lauer, as part of a week-long DC Beer Week celebration.
The District Chophouse is located near the Verizon Center (indoor coliseum) in downtown Washington, D.C., in an area that has been re-branded as the Penn Quarter.
