Update: DuClaw beers now available in 12-ounce six-packs

DuClaw beers are now available in 12-ounce six packs.

The company announced Wednesday the launch of a 12-ounce line, which seems to already be available at liquor stores in the region. 

Sawtooth, Venom, Black Lightning and 13 Degrees are the first brews to be sold in six packs, though others are likely to join them in the future.

The company's press release said the six packs are available in liquor stores throughout Maryland, Washington D.C. and northern Delaware.

We'll have a list of those stores later today, as well as any restaurants that are selling them.

Update: Below are the restaurants that carry the six packs. A list of liquor stores that carry DuClaw is here

anywhere we can get a list of liquor stores that sell them?

@ben: we'll post it later today. Duclaw has a list of retailers on its website, but its not clear if they're all carrying the six packs

I've always thought DuCVlaw's beers were kind of...meh...

However, for those interested, I recently had lunch at PIV's in Cockeysville and the bar manager was pushing samples of the 2 or 3 DuClaw brews they have on tap there. The Venom is an ok pale ale.

I looked there first before I posted and could not find a list...just looked again and did you find it?

Any idea on who is brewing/bottling the beers, or do they have their own bottling line?

@ Herbert - they bottle their own @ the brewery.

@ Ben - see here:

The list is being updated almost daily.


We have our own brewery and bottling line.

If you check out our facebook pages you can see some photos of the bottling process!

Fells Pt Dad, I would recommend re-visiting their beers. Just in the past year or so, DuClaw seems to be brewing some pretty good stuff. Arguably the best in the state. I had their one-off "X5", which was a delicious Imperial Rice Ale with lots of Sorachi Ace hops. Tasted very crisp, fresh and lemon grassy! Keep up the good work DuClaw Brewing Co. I'm a big fan.
