DC Brau/Chocolate City in cans?

Hi all,

I'm driving to Tennessee for Thanksgiving and would like to take some DC beer with me for my family to try. Can I currently buy local beer in cans anywhere in the District? I could also do NoVA, since I'll be renting a car at Reagan.

The Chocolate City Copper Ale is my favorite, but I'd also be happy with some DC Brau.

  1. I saw one of the partners from Chocolate City speak at 6th & I earlier this week, and I believe he said that they only sell their beer in kegs, but that there is some very small release of bottles coming up in a few months. Their operation sounds very small (the bottling has to be done by hand).

    1. Yes, DC Brau is around, I've had it in cans. Can't remember where I got it, but Whole Foods springs to mind.
