Beer mashups must be all the rage. Earlier today we posted about Port City’s Revival Stout, a beer brewed with oysters. And tonight in Adams Morgan, Stillwater Artisanal Ales and Bols Genever are presenting their new genever-flavored collab brew, Kopstootje. “Kopstootje,” which translates to “little head butt,” is the word the Dutch use when they want to order a beer and a shot of genever—a malty ancestor to gin that is a staple spirit in the Netherlands. (In Holland, they lean over the bar and take a sip of the genever, then pick up their beer and toast, thus the head-butt thing.) 

Stillwater brewer Brian Strumke and Bols Genever reps Tal Nadari and Jacob Grier will be at Jack Rose Dining Saloon tonight to debut Kopstootje, a beer brewed with rye, wheat, corn, and barley, plus juniper, the classic gin/genever botanical, and five other spices. Rachel Sergi, Jack Rose’s very good bartender, will be making genever cocktails. There will also be other Stillwater brews on hand. Stop by at or after 6 PM.
