Bill Madden will be the inaugural host of a revamped History & Hops series at the Heurich House Museum. On Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 6:30-8:30 pm, the Mad Fox Brewing Company CEO and Executive Brewer will host the Dupont Circle Museum’s monthly beer-themed after-house event, but now with a new twist. Madden kicks off a year of “beer star” hosts that will include industry insiders from throughout the area. During March’s intimate evening, guests will have more personal access to Bill to discuss a variety of beers he has hand-selected. Guests will have the unique opportunity to enhance their local beer knowledge by learning from an expert, while also being able to self-tour the historic Brewmaster’s Castle.
A nationally recognized brewmaster, Bill Madden has operated seven brewpub locations in Northern Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Maryland. He has also won numerous medals at the Great American Beer Festival® and the Chicago Real Ale Festival. His achievements in the brewing industry speak to his finesse and skill as a brewer. Now it is your chance to learn from this beer insider!
“Even though History & Hops continues to be one of our most popular public events, we wanted to give our guests an even richer experience,” said Heurich House Museum Executive Director Kimberly Bender. “We are excited to introduce them to the best beer minds in DC in an intimate and interactive setting. Christian Heurich would be proud that his home is being used to educate people about his craft.”
