Bete Blanche is the latest in Elysian's Capitol Hill Series – a collection of new and old beers from Elysian’s original Capitol Hill brewhouse – and is the last of six to be released in 2017. Join us on the Hill on Friday, December 8th for a ceremonial tapping of Bete Blanche and toast from Capitol Hill Lead Brewer, Hiawatha Rhyans. All proceeds from Bete Blanche sold during the event will go to Bailey-Boushay House, an organization that provides exceptional care to people with HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening conditions such as ALS, in order to enhance their health, well-being and functional independence. Oh, and did we mention Smokey Brights will be performing? Yes, seriously. No cover. 21+
