Freigeist Bierkultur Beer Dinner Hosted by Founder Sebastian Sauer!

We are ecstatic to welcome on of the hottest new international craft brewers around--Freigeist Bierkultur from Cologne, Germany--to Washington, DC with a huge beer and food dinner at Birch & Barley! Sebastian Sauer, the young and inimitably inventive brewer behind Friegeist will be on hand to regale us with stories about his fantastic ales, while Birch & Barley Executive Chef Kyle Bailey and Pastry Chef Tiffany MacIsaac showcase their craft with a 5 course dinner paired perfectly with 7 of Sebastian's brews. The dinner menu features dishes inspired by the cuisine of Cologne, Germany and will also showcase some tipples from a new line of beer Sebastian is calling The Monarchy. July 1st just happens to be Sebastian's birthday, so you do not want to miss out on this very special Freigeist/ The Monarchy Birthday Beer & Food Experience!

The 5 course dinner will feature 7 different Freigeist/ The Monarchy brews and will begin at 7 pm. It is priced and $73 exclusive of tax and gratuity.
