Come join us on Friday, February 7th at Bluejacket as we celebrate International Clash Day! We are excited to welcome Ward 6 Council member Charles Allen’s office to Bluejacket as they present the city council resolution declaring February 7, 2020 as International Clash Day in the Nation’s Capital. In honor of the occasion, the team at Bluejacket has once again crafted a special release called London’s Drowning, a delicious, juicy IPA, brewed with South African-grown African Queen hops, and proceeds from this solidarity brew will be donated to the DC Immigration Legal Services fund. London’s Drowning will be available on draft and in cans for retail sale beginning at 12pm, the resolution will be presented at 6 pm, and we will be rocking Clash tunes all day and all night. There is no cover for the event and will be first come, first served. More on the history of International Clash Day and London’s Drowning below!
LONDON’S DROWNING – IPA with African Queen – 7.0% abv
Brewed exclusively with South African-grown African Queen hops, London’s Drowning shows intense citrus, black currant, passionfruit and lemongrass aromas. This juicy brew was crafted in collaboration with our friends from KEXP in Seattle, WA to celebrate the 8th annual International Clash Day. All proceeds from this pro-solidarity, pro-unity, and pro-inclusion brew will go to the DC Immigrant Legal Services fund.
International Clash Day began in Seattle in 2013 when KEXP Morning Show host John Richards decided that one Clash song wasn’t enough, and dedicated the rest of his show to the Clash. Over the next few years, the programming grew and expanded, other radio stations started following suit. Ultimately, cities around the world began to officially declare February 7th to be International Clash Day. In 2018, the holiday was celebrated by over 100 radio stations on all seven continents, along with dozens of events and official city proclamations all around the world.
