Look for a classic grainy lager aroma with sweetly floral hops and a touch of German mustiness from the use of German yeast. Expect a smooth brew with medium body and a robust, mouthfilling presence. We found the somewhat lemony-hop profile evoked wheat-like flavors similar to a German wheat beer. The hops are restrained, as a notable grain and bread flavor from the malts take center stage. The finish is characterized by a very natural-tasting graininess with ever-so-light spices from the faintly lemony hops. Enjoy with steamed clams, light on the lemon.
The name “Old Dominion” is a nickname for the state of Virginia, given by England’s King Charles II in 1663 when he added the colonial state to his dominions of Ireland, Scotland, and France. This regally-appointed sobriquet was adopted by the founders of our first featured brewery, The Old Dominion Brewing Company back in 1989, when they officially became the Washington area’s first microbrewery. Despite their success, the brewery still maintains a vehement commitment to producing beer on the micro scale. They’ve managed to enjoy success but retain their “micro” spirit by brewing a large variety of beer styles, rather than mass-producing a few of their products. They actively brew an impressive roster of 31 ales and lagers, including many traditional seasonal specialties. All told, they’ve brought home over 12 medals from the Great American Beer Festival. Ranked one of the 20 best breweries in the U.S. in 1998 by Gourmet Food and Wine magazine, and Smart Money’s choice in 2000 as one of the five best breweries in the country! The brewery is located just 3 miles north of Washington’s Dulles Airport, an easy drive from D.C. With their on-site brewpub, it’s a great place to visit if you are ever in the D.C. area. Hey, a visit to the brewery/brewpub is indeed worth a trip to our nation’s Capital! (Just avoid hunting with Dick Cheney while you’re there!)
