The BarleyWine at the Strong Beer Tasting in D.C. was great. I can't wait to taste it from Brand New Oak Barrels! Nice Job.

Ale Hound,

Fact: 2Brew disappears and you arrive with similiar style. Coincidence, maybe.

Fact: The beer you had on both visits was the same. Why the difference of opinions or ratings?

Fact: I am real and use my own name not a moniker.

First of all,I apologize if you are not 2Brew. I had a few beers in me and found similiar styles between the two of your posts.

I am a complete supporter of free speech and opinion. This board and ones like it are a very useful tool to the beer community. I think this is the purpose of this board and I like it. Even though you improved your review, I just don't think I could get online and "give a less than positive review" on a place that just opened and also request cheaper beer prices. It would be like judging someone you just met. As for my posting, all I did was "reply" to your review. That is why "reply" is there. I wish I could just "reply" to you but that is not the case.

In closing. Sorry about the name calling and hope you enjoy many more tasty premium malt beverages at Growlers in the future.

Cheers, Barrett

Ale Hound= 2Brew= TurboDoucheBag

This guy keeps bashing and then loving this place. I hope the owners ignore his "Happy Hour" requests. Keep this board positive and keep brewpubs alive.

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 HefeWeizen 14.0 IPA 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.

Cheers, Barrett
