As if we Washingtonians needed any more incentive to crack a local microbrew and take in some televised base-rallying, DC Beer brings word that Port City Brewing Company founder Bill Butcher will be speaking at the Democratic National Convention tonight.

Butcher will be addressing the crowd in Charlotte, North Carolina, from the point of view of a small business owner, reports DC Beer. The site ran a Q&A with the Alexandria-based brewer; in it, Butcher says that if he has the chance to speak with President Obama, he will welcome him to the local homebrewing community—a reference to the recent release of recipes for two from-scratch White House beers—and let him know that he’s in good company!

Tune in to the convention tonight between 9 and 9:30 to hear Butcher speak.
