Bluejacket Brewery: Washington D.C.'s Breakout Beer Star Slideshow
June 6, 2014
We toured the gigantic brewery in D.C.’s Navy Yard
Some of Bluejacket's beers are aged in a variety of casks, including some that held wine and whiskey.
In the coolship, the wort is exposed to natural air overnight through the open vents, before the fermentation process begins.
Bluejacket Bar Area
Patrons in the bar area can look up and see their beer being brewed in the floors above them. All of Bluejacket's beers are temperature controlled, so each beer has its own temperature.
The beer menu at Bluejacket is always changing, but always includes 20 beers on tap and five cask ales. Each beer has a detailed description as well as flavor profiles, ABV, and temperature all listed on the menu.
From left to right: Field of Fire (a Scotish ale brewed with Scotch bonnet peppers), Lullaby (a Belgian-style wheat), an unnamed beer brewed in collaboration with Garrett Oliver from Brooklyn Brewery, and Heavy Meadow (an India pale lager).
Garrett Oliver Collaboration Beer
Fresh off his James Beard award win, Garrett Oliver worked with Greg Engert to create this sour beer for Bluejacket.
Patrons at Bluejacket sample beers at the bar.
For $9.50, get this huge bowl of decadent fries topped with their housemade General Satan’s sauce and scallions.
These fries are topped with their homemade (very spicy) hot sauce and blue cheese.
