Saying one likes foreign movies is a bit of an ambiguous statement because foreign films can mean anything from Kurosawa’s Ikiru to Fellini’s 8 ½ to Satrapi’s Persepolis--they encompass all cultures, styles, and genres. Beer can be similar in that a brewery may express itself using an entire spectrum of styles, flavors, and techniques. Some breweries may act as auteurs and choose one repeating niche in which to express themselves (say, only lagers or English-style ales). Other breweries, though, will continually experiment and explore new styles to conquer. DC Brau is definitely in the latter category. If they were a foreign movie director, they may be Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
One could drink one of DC Brau’s previous offerings, such as On the Wings of Armageddon, Thyme after Thyme, or the Stone of Arbroath and expect DC Brau to make only darker, stronger, more complex films with just a tinge of whimsy. Perhaps, say, like when Jeunet came out with Delicatessen, City of Children, and Alien Resurrection. But that’s not what you get here or with Jeunet. He followed up those three films with the incredibly charming, amiable, and joyous Amélie. And DC Brau?
Pouring Your Favorite Foreign Movie from a growler filled at the brewery, it fills the glass with a pale, hazy straw yellow beer with a thick, moderately persistent head. The nose is filled with lemon, wheat, grass, and an undercurrent of bready maltiness. Its taste is very bright and clean with notes of subtle hoppy citrus but it fades to a malty, bready sweetness before its very clean finish. Its mouthfeel is light and effervescent.
Your Favorite Foreign Movie is, I believe, DC Brau’s beer with the lowest ABV, clocking in at 4 percent. This factor, along with the beer’s very bright and clean taste and incredible drinkability makes it the perfect summer beer for a hot and muggy DC day. It’s a refreshing crowd pleaser that is certain to bring a bit of a smile to the drinker’s face.
In this case, I have to say, my favorite foreign movie is Amélie.

Not sure how to classify this beer but it was light in color, body, and clean but had this yeastiness to it. The classification can be changed. Congratulations to Brian for winning the Meridian Pint homebrew matchup and having this beer brewed by DC Brau as a result. Served on draft at Meridian pint in a tulip.
Beer is yellow and hazy to the point of being white, nice big head of small bubbles, bright white, small and medium, some retention, some lacing, nice carbonation. Looks good.
Aroma is yeasty and bready with a mild maltiness.
Beer is wet start to finish, clean on the back end, a nice easy drinking beer with the strongest component being the yeast on the palate. I could drink a lot of this beer and would have it again if given the opportunity.

On tap at Rustico. Served in a sample snifter. Pours a cloudy light golden. Heavy head and lace. Styrian-type hops and some fruit. Touch of bready malt. Non descript. Light-med body. Easy-drinking, but nothing too interesting. Given the low-ABV, I’d certainly choose this again on the right occasion.
