Holiday Gift Guide (Day 7)

Day Seven of Garden of Glam’s Holiday Gift Guide featuring Mari Rodela of DC Brau Brewing

Mari is the Community Liaison for DC Brau.  DC Brau is DC’s first packaging brewery since 1956 and brews its delicious beers in Northeast DC in a warehouse decorated with murals done by local artists.  I must be honest, I am not a beer person, but have loved every beer I have tried that was brewed by DC Brau.  I think DC Brau is turning me into a person and that really says something! DC Brau is unique, eclectic, innovative and enhances the DC beer and culinary scene with their forward-thinking attitude and approach to microbrewing.  And this is the very reason I knew Mari would be perfect for this Holiday collaboration!

It also happens to be the best cold brewed coffee I’ve tried.” – Mari
