Crabs & Kellerbier at Gordon Biersch, Rockville

  • Gordon Biersch - Rockville 200 East Middle Lane Rockville, MD 20850 USA

On Saturday, August 17, come on over to Gordon Biersch in Rockville to celebrate with Chesapeake hard-shell crabs and Kellerbier!

Kellerbier is unfiltered lager.  There is a small amount of yeast in suspension and often lower carbonation, resulting in lagerbier that is often richer in flavor.  Hoppy kellerbiers are hoppier than their filtered counterparts while malty Kellerbiers often have a softer and richer mouthfeel.  But they are all crisp and refreshing—a perfect complement to sweet succulent crab meat and great foil to the salty spiciness of crabs Old Bay seasoning. 

Crabs will be served from noon to 5 PM. We will have four Kellerbiers served along with a traditional Chesapeake crab feast.
