Two local favorites are teaming up in a new deal.
The beer is best enjoyed with smoked and barbecued foods, Voltaggio said. It's made with malted barley that's been smoked over a cherry wood fire.
Until early June, it's available exclusively at VOLT Restaurant. On June 3 and 4, it'll premiere in D.C. for SAVOR: An American Craft Beer and Food Experience. That's a food and beer pairing event put on by the Brewers Association at the National Building Museum.
After that, Backyard Ale will be sold at select retailers in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia.
