The Washington Capitals and Devils Backbone Brewing Company are teaming up for a Caps-themed beer. Called "Capit-Ale India Pale Ale," the new beer will become available in cans at Capital One Arena starting in September and will be available for the remainder of the 2019-2020 NHL season.
The beer is being described as "an easy drinking, hoppy brew." Two different can designs will be offered, once designed by DC-based artists BroCoLoco and will feature their mural design at L'Enfant Plaza. The other design is up for grabs, with fans being able to submit their own original designs to be evaluated by the brewery and reps for the Caps. The winner will also get tickets to a game, a framed version of their art signed by Capitals players, and have their art displayed at the Devils Backbone bar inside Capital One Arena.
Devils Backbone COO Hayes Humphreys says, "Few things are finer than enjoying a Caps victory with friends, which is why we're excited to partner with the Washington Capitals on Capit-Ale. We're confident that world class beer and world class hockey will make an excellent pairing for the upcoming season."
