Hellbender Brewing Company
Founded by buddies Ben Evans and Patrick Mulane, these two environmentally conscious brewers create artistic interpretations of existing recipes to fit a homegrown DC approach, and raise awareness about the endangered Eastern Hellbender Salamander in which Evans, a former scientist, had a childhood fascination with. Using an imported Belgian mash filtration system, a sustainable, green process for beermaking and waste disposal, and American grown ingredients, beer nerds should imbibe in the Red Line, a full-bodied American ale, and the Bäre Bönes, a traditional German Kölsch.
