Deschutes and Cigar City/Funky Buddha Nights @ ChurchKey

ChurchKey Parabola and AbyssTo celebrate SAVOR last year, one of the beer industry’s biggest events of the year held the first weekend of June every summer in the District (now no more! woe is me!), ChurchKey held two separate events serving up great beer from Deschutes and Cigar City. theBeerAuthority took advantage of those opportunities last year and really enjoyed both drafts of Deschutes Abyss and… Firestone Walker Parabola. Pure bliss!

Unfortunately, Cigar City night started out a disorganized mess! Beers didn’t hit the taps until around 7pm (was there since 4pm) and it was massively crowded at the bar. Took awhile for my beers to arrive at my table – due to the chaos, I missed out on the Funky Buddha Maple Bacon Coffee Porter Maple. Though, I was able to enjoy the following Cigar City and Funky Buddha brews: Last Snow, Warmer Winter, Bluefly, Bonita Applebaum, Jean Ribault, Tocobaga and a collaboration beer called Snack Attack! I thought the Funky Buddha beers took the cake that night – I really thought their snack-oriented beers were delicious and interesting. I was bummed that Cigar City didn’t serve up their famous Marshal Zhukov or Hunahpu Imperial Stout beers. That would been awesome!

Churchkey Parabola 3 A special shout out to Deschutes, Cigar City, and Funky Buddha for coming out to DC and sharing your wonderful brews which turned to a memorable night!
