1330 U Street NW Washington
U Street neighborhood tavern Fainting Goat is calling all whiskey & food lovers for a special industry night celebration with local VA craft distillery Catoctin Creek on Tuesday, October 4. Not just for restaurant industry members and fully open to the public, the evening (7-11:30pm) will feature spirits tastings, cocktail specials, “cheffy” late night bites, raffle prizes and more.
Fainting Goat is excited to once again host Catoctin Creek, the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition, located in nearby Purcellville, Virginia. The award-winning craft distillery produces a variety of rye whiskeys made from local and organic grains, gins and fruit brandies. Catoctin Creek representatives will pour tastings of several spirits and also give away raffle prizes throughout the night.
The Goat’s bar team created several early fall-inspired cocktails showcasing Catoctin Creek’s diverse lineup of rye whiskeys and gins.
Tailored to the industry crowd, there’s also a menu of boilermakers & drink combos, such as the Grand Goat (DC Brau’s “Goat ‘n Brau” + Grand Marnier); Amaro Ranger (amaro nonino + Voodoo Ranger); Miller High Life + Chef Sam’s Caviar Bump.
Executive Chef Sam George will serve a creative menu of Late Night Bites: highbrow-meets-lowbrow, cheffed-up snacks inspired by industry folks’ favorite post-shift grub. Expect Pizza Rolls filled with ‘nduja, mozzarella and rosemary oil; and bone marrow-topped Steak of the Union cheesesteak with NY strip, roasted bone marrow, gruyere and pickled hatch chiles on sourdough.
He’s also curated Chips & Cheese pairings, coupling crispy snacks with fancy cheeses. Duos include Sour Cream & Onion + havarti dill from Wisconsin; BBQ Pringles + aged grafton cheddar from Vermont; and Takis + smoked blu cheese from Mold City USA.
The Fainting Goat’s Industry Night with Catoctin Creek is free to attend and open to the public. For more information, please visit www.faintinggoatdc.com, follow them on Instagram at @faintinggoatdc.
