"To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Barrett Lauer and I am the Brewer at The District ChopHouse and Brewery. I am writing here for two reasons. First and foremost, I would like to thank all of the "beer folk" for their support and interest in the craft brewing industry. Secondly, I feel I need to respond to the posting left by 2brew due to the personal nature of his review. This is the first extremely negative review I've received and felt I had to respond.
I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal and the service at our establishment. I'm sorry you thought my beers were weak and not "hoopy"(I think you meant hoppy). All of my beers have an O.G. of 13 degrees Plato or higher, except for the Light Lager. When you visited my beer selection this: O.G.
Light Lager 9.2
Amber Ale 13.0
Nut Brown Ale 14.0
Oatmeal Stout 15.5
Bourbon Stout 15.5
Velvet was not serving on that day
If one likes hops one would order an IPA. Also the Amber you had is a NW Style and is generously hopped with over .75 lbs per barrel, though most of the hops are Cascade and are heavily loaded toward the back of the beer(Aromatic). The Amber Ale has 43 IBU's. That's pretty hoppy for an Amber Ale.
I have 8 serving tanks and very little room for kegs, hence the "limited selection". I still find almost everyone finds a beer that they enjoy in the line-up. If you ever come to the ChopHouse again or go to any other brewpubs I would recommend ordering a "Sampler". Most brewpubs do this. The customer gets a small amount of the beers on tap. This way one can try them all. In fact at The District ChopHouse a first-time customer gets a "SAMPLER FOR FREE !" This helps "amateur beer drinkers" like yourself pick a "hoopy" beer like the IPA.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. If you have any questions I will be more than happy to answer them. I have been brewing professionally for over 10 years and hope that if you are in D.C. you will give my beers another taste.
