BLUEJACKET FACTS
WHERE CAN I FIND BLUEJACKET BEERS? DO YOU SHIP?

•••

OUR BEERS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE ON DRAFT AND CASK AT OUR HOME RESTAURANT AND BAR—THE ARSENAL—WHICH IS LOCATED WITHIN THE BREWERY. WE ALSO OFFER A ROTATING SELECTION OF OUR BEERS IN CORKED & CAGED 750 ML. BOTTLES AT THE BREWERY IN CORKED & CAGED 750 ML. THESE BOTTLES ARE SOLELY INTENDED FOR OFF-SITE CONSUMPTION. DUE TO VARYING STATE ALCOHOL LAWS, WE ARE UNABLE TO SHIP OUR BEERS DIRECTLY. WE DO HAVE PLANS TO DISTRIBUTE OUR KEGS AND CASKS THROUGHOUT THE REGION, SO STAY TUNED!

DO YOU FILL GROWLERS?

•••

WE DO NOT SELL OR FILL GROWLERS. THE TWO MAIN FACTORS INFLUENCING OUR STANCE ON GROWLERS ARE THE QUALITY OF THE BEER AND THE CUSTOMER’S ENJOYMENT OF OUR BEER. ONCE ANY GROWLER IS OPENED, THE BEER BEGINS TO LOSE ITS LUSTER AND SHOULD BE CONSUMED IN ONE SITTING TO BE ENJOYED IN ITS FRESHEST STATE. SIXTY-FOUR OUNCES IS A LOT OF BEER TO CONSUME AT ONE TIME WITHOUT WASTE. WE BELIEVE THAT THE 750 ML. BOTTLES WE OFFER FOR RETAIL PURCHASE PROVIDE A MORE REASONABLE VOLUME OF BEER TO BE ENJOYED BY OUR CUSTOMERS WITHOUT WASTING ANY BEER OR MONEY, WHILE PRESERVING THE QUALITY OF OUR BEER.

I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY (I.E., A NUT ALLERGY). CAN I STILL DRINK BLUEJACKET BEERS?

•••

FOR THE MOST PART - YES! WHEN WE BREW BEERS THAT CONTAIN ALLERGENS OR ITEMS WITH HIGH SENSITIVITY LEVELS THAT FALL OUTSIDE OF THE NORMAL RANGE OF BEER INGREDIENTS, WE WILL LIST THEM IN THOSE BEERS' DESCRIPTIONS SO THAT NONE OF OUR CUSTOMERS FIND THEMSELVES DRINKING SOMETHING THEY SHOULDN'T.

ARE ANY OF YOUR BEERS VEGAN/VEGETARIAN?

•••

AGAIN, YES! MOST OF OUR BEERS ARE VEGAN. WE DO NOT USE ISINGLASS FININGS (WHICH ARE DERIVED FROM FISH) TO CLARIFY OUR BEERS. CERTAIN BEERS, HOWEVER, MAY NOT BE VEGAN BECAUSE OF A SPECIALTY INGREDIENT SUCH AS HONEY OR LACTOSE (MILK SUGAR). THOSE BEERS WILL HAVE THEIR INGREDIENTS CLEARLY LISTED SO THAT OUR VEGAN FRIENDS CAN MAKE THEIR BEER DRINKING CHOICES WITH CONFIDENCE.

ARE ANY OF YOUR BEERS GLUTEN FREE?

•••

AT THIS TIME, NONE OF OUR BEERS ARE GLUTEN FREE.

I HEARD YOU HAVE A RESTAURANT. SO BLUEJACKET IS A BREWPUB?

•••

BLUEJACKET IS A THREE-STORY MICROBREWERY LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE CAPITOL RIVERFRONT NEIGHBORHOOD OF WASHINGTON, DC. UNLIKE A BREWPUB, WE BREW BEERS FOR OFF-PREMISE SALE AND CONSUMPTION.

FROM ITS INCEPTION, BLUEJACKET WAS DESIGNED TO BE A PRODUCTION BREWERY. WHEN WE DISCOVERED THE OLD BOILERMAKER BUILDING WE NOW INHABIT, WE FELL IN LOVE WITH THE SPACE AND SOON REALIZED THAT IT COULD FIT NOT ONLY THE BREWERY, BUT ALSO A RESTAURANT AND BAR. THE ARSENAL IS THE NATURAL COMPLEMENT TO BLUEJACKET. IT’S THE GATHERING PLACE FOR OUR FRIENDS TO ENJOY OUR BEERS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ELABORATE BREWING SYSTEM USED TO MAKE THEM, PAIRED WITH DISHES CREATED BY OUR CULINARY TEAM USING LOCAL, SEASONAL INGREDIENTS AND WITH THE FLAVOR PROFILES OF OUR BEERS IN MIND.

WHAT ARE THE HOURS OF OPERATION FOR THE ARSENAL?

•••

THE ARSENAL DINING ROOM IS OPEN SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY FROM 5:30 PM - 10 PM AND FRIDAY AND SATURDAY FROM 5:30 PM - 11 PM. LUNCH, MONDAY TO FRIDAY 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY 12:00 PM -2:30 PM. THE BAR CLOSES AT 1:00 AM.

DO YOU OFFER HAPPY HOUR?

•••

WITH BLUEJACKET BEERS SPANNING A VARIETY OF FLAVORS AND STYLES, WE ABSOLUTELY WANT TO GIVE EVERY GUEST THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY OUR BREWS AND FIND THE ONES THEY ENJOY MOST. WITH THAT IN MIND, WE OFFER 4 OZ. TASTING POURS AT A LOWER PRICE THAN FULL POURS. UNLIKE HAPPY HOURS, THESE TASTING POURS ARE AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES, PROVIDING EXCELLENT VALUE AT ANY HOUR, AND THEY'RE A GREAT WAY TO GET ACQUAINTED WITH OUR BLUEJACKET ORIGINALS AND AUTHENTIC CASK ALES.

WHERE DOES THE NAME BLUEJACKET COME FROM?

•••

WE ARE LOCATED NEXT TO THE NAVY YARD IN DC, AND WE OCCUPY A BUILDING THAT WAS ONCE USED TO MANUFACTURE BOILERS FOR NAVY SHIPS, MUNITIONS, AND OTHER PRODUCTS. THE NAME BLUEJACKET IS A NAVY TERM FOR AN ENLISTED PERSON (ENLISTEES RECEIVE THE BLUEJACKET MANUAL, THE BASIC HANDBOOK FOR U.S. NAVY PERSONNEL), AND IT IS INTENDED TO PAY HOMAGE TO THE HISTORY OF OUR BUILDING AND OUR NEIGHBORHOOD THAT WE ARE NOW A PART OF. PLUS, WE JUST LIKE THE SOUND OF IT!
