Atlas Brew Works, the District’s newest production craft brewery, today announced an addition to its lineup, The 1500 South Cap Lager, made exclusively for the Washington Nationals.
“We are excited to have Atlas in the ballpark this season and even more excited to work with the Nationals on an exclusive beer for our favorite baseball club.” said Atlas CEO Justin Cox, “The Nationals are making a big push to include local food and drink in the ballpark and The 1500 will be a great local option for fans,” said Jonathan Stahl, Senior Director of Guest Experience and Hospitality.
The 1500 South Cap Lager, named after the address of Nationals Park, is a 4.8% Helles lager that will be a great compliment to a sunny day in the stands. “The 1500 is an American spin on a traditional German style pale lager. It features light malt notes and earthy American hops,” said Will Durgin, Atlas’ Head Brewer. The beer will be available at locations throughout the three levels of the ballpark the Red Porch Restaurant in Center Field Plaza.
Atlas Brew Works, founded by Justin Cox and award winning professional brewer Will Durgin, will launch The 1500 at the home opener for the Nationals on April 4, 2014. Atlas will also rotate other beer offerings at the District Draft carts throughout the season including Rowdy, a hop-forward American-style Rye ale; District Common, a California Common featuring Czech Saaz hops; and Home Rule, an India Pale Lager featuring Waimea hops from New Zealand.
Atlas Brew Works is located in the Ivy City neighborhood of Northeast DC and provides fresh, local craft beer to thirsty Washingtonians in taverns and restaurants across the District.
