Bardo Brewpub Rolls Out Even More New Brews Tonight

It may be a rainy day outside, but that won't stop the indoor fun at Bardo (1200 Bladensburg Road) when they introduce six new beers tonight. New releases include: a black sour, an imperial brown ale, an imperial IPA, and a dark IPA, as well as dry hopped versions of the imperial IPA and the black IPA. This brings the total number of Bardo beers offered on tap to thirteen. That imperial IPA is Dremo Tibetan Sasquatch, which the owners (the Stewart brothers) regard as a bit of a flagship beer.
Haven't been to Bardo since they first opened? Then you might be forgiven for not knowing that they now have a renovated indoor space as well. The "newly renovated interior boasts one hundred year old pine floors, brick walls and early century, tin, press plate ceilings," and a couple of animal heads on the wall. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original Bardo Rodeo (a legendary bar in Arlington) the Stewart brothers have temporarily lowered beer prices to resemble what you would have paid back in 1994. That means $3.45 pints and $9.91 pitchers of Bardo brew. They also run a Thursday night special that offers all you care to drink Bardo beer for $20 (ask for it when you first order).
There's a full press release below:
Bardo Brewpub releases next wave of brews Thursday, Sept 25.
Just two months after the debut of their first beers, Bardo is introducing another wave of brews, bringing the total number of beers on tap to thirteen. Black sour, imperial brown ale, imperial IPA and a dark IPA, as well as dry hopped versions of the imperial IPA and the black IPA will be tapped Thursday, Sept 25th.
Bardo is extremely excited about the debut of the GABF bronze medal winning, imperial IPA, Dremo Tibetan Sasquatch. "Dremo started as one of our cult favorites. It gradually became less of a secret and evolved into our flagship beer." commented Bardo Brewpub's Andrew Stewart. "It has been the number one question we have fielded since pulling the brewery out of storage, 'When is Dremo going to be ready?'."
Bardo Rodeo operated in the 90's as the largest brewpub in the country. The 22000 sq. ft. former car dealership included 900 indoor & 700 outdoor seats as well as a 25-barrel brewhouse. As one of the first bars in the Clarendon neighborhood in Arlington VA, Bardo brewed 4000 kegs a year and enjoyed thousands of visitors each weekend.
The decision to put the brewery in storage for more than a decade proved a fortuitous one. Bardo head man, Bill Stewart, had been living overseas for years when his brother, Andrew, convinced him to come back stateside a start making beer again. "I didn't know craft brewing had become cool again. We rode the last wave, we decided to jump on this wave." Bill stated.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of their first brew, Bardo is pricing all beers like it's 1994. For a limited time, you can enjoy $3.45 pints and $9.91 pitchers of Bardo brew.
Bardo Brewpub is the largest beer garden in the city. A newly renovated interior boasts one hundred year old pine floors, brick walls and early century, tin, press plate ceilings. A wide variety of GABF award winning house brews are available in pints and pitchers as well as growlers. Bardo is 100% dog friendly every day with 15,000 square feet in our beer garden to roam off leash. Located at 1200 Bladensburg rd NE, Bardo has cornhole, big screen movie viewings/sports and is available for private parties/fundraisers, large and small, with no charge for the space.
