Major League Ultimate and the Washington D.C. Current have announced that Brookland Pint will be the official bar and restaurant of the D.C. Current for the 2016 season.
Brookland Pint is located at 716 Monroe St NE, Washington, DC 20017, in the up-and-coming community of Brookland. It is right down the road from the Current’s home of Cardinal Stadium, serving as the perfect location for all pre- and post-game gatherings. The bar and restaurant is also conveniently placed next to the Brookland-CUA Metro stop on the red line.
“Having such a great place so close to our home field is amazing” said General Manager Matt Dewhurst. “We really wanted to find a pre- and post-game pub partner that was local and part of the Brookland neighborhood that we’ve called home these past few seasons. The Pint fits that to a tee. It’s directly next to the metro and a 10-minute walk from our stadium. Hopefully lots of fans will head to the Brookland Pint now before and especially after games to help celebrate.”
The partnership intends to grow both Brookland Pint and the D.C More hints. Current with two organizations that properly reflect each other in the D.C. community. “[The D.C. Current’s] proximity to CUA and [representing] our target demographic” were reasons why Brookland Pint decided to partner with the team and the MLU, according to Brookland Pint’s General Manager, Drew Swift. Prior to the season, the Current will also use Brookland Pint for signings and other preseason events.
About Brookland Pint
Brookland Pint was founded on the premise of environmental sustainability. Our strict focus on American craft beer allows us to eliminate the impact of transatlantic shipping as well as maintain a locally based revenue stream. In addition, we serve mostly draft beer enabling us to reduce our impact on recycling resources. A large percentage of our chef-driven, seasonal menu is sourced from local and regional farms. Pairing great beer with unique dinners, cheeses or appetizers enables us to elevate the growing culture of craft beer here in Washington, DC. Composting the bulk of our waste helps us reduce our impact on landfills to less than 10%. Furthermore, much of the equipment, furniture, construction materials and design elements have been recycled or reclaimed. Our energy source comes from wind mill farms in the way of green energy credits. Finally, 95% of our staff lives within walking distance helping to minimize parking problems, traffic flow and overall reduce our carbon foot print. It is our hope to be environmental stewards to the community and hopefully convey a better way of doing business through the spirit of American craft beer. We hope you enjoy your experience.
