Unleash the Fury: Our Stanley Cup Champs are Playoffs Bound!

Our Washington Capitals just clinched the NHL Playoffs, and we can’t wait to watch our hometown Stanley Cup champs Unleash the Fury. As you plan which hockey games you’ll be attending, don’t forget about your pregame or postgame eats and drinks. 

Being just blocks away from Capital One Arena makes Farmers & Distillers the ultimate place for all of your pregame or postgame needs. We’re hosting a CAPS Hour at our Farmers & Distillers bar with specially priced select draft beers, Founding Spirits highball craft cocktails, and Bar Bites for home game playoff ticket holders. Find out more here.

We also have some of DC’s favorite scratch-made food and drink on our regular menus to make for a winning night of Caps fever with friends or a great date night to Rock the Red with someone special. Make your reservation today to make game night a breeze.

Red, Red Wine. What better way to Rock the Red than with a fruit-forward pinot noir or a full-bodied cabernet sauvignon from our extensive wine list? We’re proud to offer selections from vintners who align with our values and follow sustainable, organic, and biodynamic practices. If you’re with a larger group, check out the winning line-up featured on our Director’s List for bottles specially chosen by our very own Jon Arroyo.

Get Your Cold Beer, Here! If you are more of a beer person, especially on hockey game nights, our beer program has something for everyone. With multiple taps, choices from light to bold, lagers to ales, we make it easy to choose one of your favorites or try a new brew. 

Winning Cocktails on Ice. It only seems fitting to cheer on our hometown heroes with our award-winning Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro. Distilled and bottled at our in-house distillery, our cocktail menu is chock-full of unique amaro craft cocktails like the Amaro Daiquiri or Negroni Swizzle. 

Snack on Some Starters. Our beef & pork Meatballs are must-haves. Ground in-house and made from scratch, our Meatballs are topped with our delicious, homemade red sauce. And on the assist, try our Parmesan Garlic Knots, served with a savory roasted tomato-basil chutney, with whipped ricotta. Or feast on a selection of our famous Farm Breads, FF Glazed Bacon Lollies, or Ahi Tuna Bites. 

Indulge in a House Favorite. It wouldn’t be a sporting event without a fresh n’ juicy burger. Try our All-American double patty burger or enjoy our Baby Macs, Shake & Fries. But, let’s remember… anything can happen in post-season hockey. Conquer the no-longer-impossible (since we already brought home the Stanley cup, after all) with our IMPOSSIBLE Burger, made entirely from plants for people who love meat. And don’t skip out on our house-made fries and chips, we promise they won’t disappoint. 

Save Room for Dessert. Donuts + Cherry Pie = Win. There are other choices too, but for game night, we’re thinking these are our favorite picks.

Come join us. Farmers & Distillers is an easy walk to Capital One Arena. We’re close by two metro stops (Gallery Place-Chinatown that serves the red, yellow & green lines + Mt Vernon Square, serving the green & yellow Lines). Or if you drive, parking is easy at Farmers & Distillers in our neighboring garage

We’ll be Rocking the Red all post-season long, and hope you will too. Cheers to good drinks, great food, and our Stanley Cup champs. Unleash the Fury that is DC hockey.

Exclusive Pilsner Urquell Brew at Farmers & Distillers

Last night, we shared a very special unfiltered brew created by the expert brewers at historic Pilsner Urquell. This exclusive brew, Pilsner Urquell Nefiltrovaný, was flown all the way from the Czech Republic especially for us. We are the only bar in the DC metro featuring this remarkable Pilsner Urquell brew. 

The free tasting featured lots of beer samples and special pours, beer expertise, and even branded mugs and additional swag from our Pilsner Urquell partners. But most important of all, guests got an exclusive taste from the legendary pilsner giant. 

The 175 year-old Pilsner Urquell brewery, located in a remote town in the Czech Republic, is widely known as the creator of the very first pilsner lager, the most popular golden brew on the planet, which has been adopted and adapted over the years by breweries around the globe. If you like lager, you can thank Pilsner Urquell. Our Beverage Director, Jon Arroyo, made the trek to the brewery and said, “I can die now,” after tasting their lager directly from the cask in the cavern where it’s brewed.

It goes without saying that Jon and his team are delighted to be able to share this special, original taste with our guests.

This spectacular pilsner is still available at Farmers & Distillers, as long as our special delivery lasts.

Of course, Farmers & Distillers is usually known for its distillery, Founding Spirits, and our tasty craft cocktails, but we have a pretty rockin’ beer program as well. With multiple taps, our program is styled from light to bold, lagers and ales, making it easy for guests to not only navigate their favorites, but also try something new. We serve our beer upon order, by the glass, generally ranging from $8 to $10 for a 10 oz to 16 oz pour. 

Stop by for a taste of the special pilsner, while supplies last… or any of our tasty brews.

Farmers & Distillers Unique Beer Program

At Farmers & Distillers, and across our company, we have a unique and robust beer program. Developed with our source-matters, high-quality, earth-friendly mission in mind, we most often partner with like-minded breweries that care not only about great tasting beer, but also about the importance of their ingredients and operating sustainably.

Our Beverage Director, Jon Arroyo, and Assistant Beer Director & Bar Manager, Melinda Koepke (both pictured), are always on the look out for new partners and tasty new brews. We work to provide an array of brands, some highly recognizable and some not. We have cultivated long-term partnerships with Devils Backbone and Flying Dog who also pursue responsibly minded business practices. Their brews can usually be found in our taps. In addition, we serve selections from the brew masters at: 

  • Sierra Nevada, including an as yet to be rescheduled Sierra Nevada beer dinner, which will feature five of the brewery’s favorites perfectly paired with our delicious, scratch-made food. 
  • Hellbender, noted as the first brewery on the East Coast to invest in a mash filter, which radically increases efficiency, allowing this smart brewhouse to brew around 25% faster from start to finish, while using about 18% less grain and 30% less water per batch than most breweries in the world.
  • Warsteiner, an impressive ninth-generation, family-owned premium brewery, world renowned as the originators of the Bavarian Purity Law, a major turning point in beer brewing history and most notably the founding family of Germany’s famed Oktoberfest. We feature their Konig Ludwig Weissbier beer, one of the first “hefeweizen” beers ever brewed. 

Our bar houses multiple taps, styled from light to bold, lagers and ales, giving guests some ease in navigating their go-to beers and inspiring them to try something new and different. Beers are served by the glass, generally from $8 to $10 for a 10 oz to 16 oz pour. 

Farmers & Distillers may be best known for our craft cocktails using small-batch spirits from our very own in-house distillery, Founding Spirits, but we think our beer program is pretty awesome too. 

Come in and check out our beer menu (and our fun bar-specials chalkboard) or ask our bartenders and servers what we have on tap. And stay for a meal. We promise, you won’t be disappointed. As always, we recommend making a reservation.
