These beers will help you to celebrate or drown your sorrows today, Inauguration Day.

Inauguration Day Beers

Still trying to figure out what to tipple on Inauguration Day? Depending on what side of the aisle you fall on, you might be reaching for champagne or cyanide. Thankfully, a couple of breweries are providing another option that promises not to be the last thing you ever drink.

On Friday, January 20, Surly Brewing Co. will tap Thanks Obama, a winter rye IPA. The hop bill includes Warrior and experimental hop variety 06297 and clocks in at 6.5% ABV. According to the brewery drinkers can

“expect a complex, spicy malt character with candied grape and vanilla cream hop aromas. Add a little honey and malt sweetness to round it out, and there you go.”

Surly assures that the beer is non-partisan and can be enjoyed by “red and blue folks alike.”

At ground zero, Washington D.C.’s Bluejacket released People are People, a “bone-dry” Belgian-style Saison. The 6% ABV ale is brewed with

“raw wheat, hopped with American, European and Southern Hemisphere hops, and fermented with a blend of Farmhouse yeasts.”

Proceeds from the beer will go to the Immigrant Justice Legal Service Grant Program, a non-profit organization providing immigrants with legal services.
