DuClaw is releasing a new beer called Cup Stand. It’s inspired by the Capitals’ Stanley Cup championship.
The Washington Capitals’ euphoric Stanley Cup championship victory in June inspired hundreds of thousands of local fans to gather at the National Mall for the team’s parade. Since then, there have been Stanley Cup bobbleheads, wine, buckets, pig races, and corn mazes made in tribute.
The latest salute comes in beer form.
In collaboration with local beer shop Downtown Crown, DuClaw Brewing Co., located in Baltimore, MD, is releasing a new pilsner entitled Cup Stand. Featuring a silhouetted Alex Ovechkin doing a Cup Stand on top of the Stanley Cup, the logo utilizes navy blue and white stars from the Capitals’ third jerseys.
The beer will be sold exclusively in cans and on draft at Downtown Crown Wine and Beer in Gaithersburg and Georgetown Square Wine and Beer in Bethesda starting Thursday, December 13.
