Recreating Christian Heurich's Pre-Prohibition Lager

  • Aired: 08/16/2013
  • 04:29
  • Rating: NR
Washington, D.C.'s Heurich Brewery has been gone for over 50 years and the beer recipes were lost. But that didn't stop Mike Stein, a local homebrewer, from attempting to recreate the brewery's historic brew. Thanks to his research and the help of the Heurich House Museum and DC Brau Brewing Company, Washingtonians can sample a historically accurate pre-Prohibition Lager.
