Derecho Common®

California Common Beer

A Beer Born of a Storm

ABV: 4.8%

In the summer of 2012, a violent derecho storm barreled through the DC Metro region, leaving our brewery without power for five days and causing the fermentation temperature of a tank of lager to rise. When our brewers pulled a sample, they were thrilled to learn that the resulting California Common was delicious in its own right! Derecho Common is deep golden in color, with biscuity malt flavors. It is medium-bodied with Centennial hops providing a spicy, citrusy hop finish. Derecho Common is our summer seasonal.
