Sour Week at the Partisan!

  • The Partisan 709 D Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20004 United States

When it comes to our preferred pint, we tend to slant sour, and for good reason. These tantalizingly tart beers are the perfect accompaniment to Nate's inimitable charcuterie & Chef Harvey's meaty fare. And what better way to celebrate our love of funky ales than with another edition of The Partisan's Sours Week?

From September 24 through October 1, a menu of 10 sours hand-picked by our beer director Greg Engert will be on available at The Partisan. This time we’re going deep into our cellar to highlight some of our favorites selection from our bottle list. Expect some exceptional beers from Cascade, Jolly Pumpkin, Avery, Mikkeller & more!

The sour selections will be available a la carte or--better yet--in flights of 3 or 5 with charcuterie pairings like Tete a Pho Pig Head Terrine, Thai Basil Bresaola, and 24 month-aged Culatello. The beer & charcuterie flights will range from $25 to $35.
