Inauguration Week at Brookland’s Finest

During inauguration week, Brookland’s Finest will tap a keg from women-owned brewery Denizens Brewing Company, donating proceeds from the beer to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The bar will also serve $10 White Russians and $10 Orange Russians (fresh squeezed orange juice, simple syrup, vanilla-infused Civic vodka and cream), with proceeds also going to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Additionally, on February 17, the restaurant will offer a three-course dinner menu with beverage pairings from Republic Restoratives, Denizens Brewing Company and Catoctin Creek. The collaborative menu will include items like charcuterie, prime rib with mashed potatoes, and an apple tartlet.
