City Tap House Debuts Their Own Exclusive Beer, Persica Rising

From our friends at City Tap House...

Dave Donaldson, beverage director for City Tap House, the craft beer-focused restaurant located at 901 9th Street, NW, is excited to announce that he has collaborated with Nathan Rice, Mike McGarvey and Dave Coleman of 3 Stars Brewing Company in Washington, DC to create a house beer exclusive to City Tap House. Persica Rising is a dry, crisp Saison with a mild hop bite and a subtle peach finish. The beer is available now exclusively at City Tap House and is priced at $6 per draft and $5 per draft during happy hour. Additionally, Donaldson will work with 3 Stars Brewing Company in the upcoming months to create variations on Persica Rising, including souring, barrel aging and infusing with seasonal ingredients.

“We leaped at the opportunity to create a house brew with 3 Stars,” says Donaldson. “I've been a strong supporter of their beer since they began distributing, and they've been great friends and supporters of City Tap House since we opened in 2013. We're all thrilled with the result and our guests have been equally enthusiastic.”
