History and Hops Brewmaster Tour

Saturday, October 20, 2018 | 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Heurich House Museum | 1307 New Hampshire Ave NW, Washington, D.C. 20036

Cost: $18 (includes private tour of mansion and flight of 3 local craft beers).

Open to Blue Hens & friends 21 years and older (photo ID required). Limit 4 tickets per party.

Once the home of D.C.’s most successful brewers, the “Brewmaster’s Castle” offers a unique look into the lives of Dupont’s elite during the 19th century. This late-Victorian era mansion was built in 1892, was home to Christian Heurich and his family and still retains its original furnishings. Join us to learn about this beautiful Dupont Circle mansion, the brewer, and one of D.C.'s largest and longest running breweries, Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. Plus, see how far the D.C. beer scene has come since then by sampling some local craft beer during the tour. The Heurich House has very limited openings to the public, so please register early for this unique opportunity.

An event like this normally would cost $40, but thanks to the generous support of the UD Alumni Association, we are able to offer this tour for $18.

Registration closes Friday, October 12 at 4:00 p.m. Unfortunately, walk-ins will not be permitted.

Join a Committee

The UD DC Alumni Club is growing and we need your help! For those of you that want to help but don't have a lot of time, we've created two committees: the Social Committee and the University Committee. The Social Committee will help plan and run happy hours, game watches, cultural and similar events. The University Committee will help with our new community service and other UD engagements.

Committees are the easiest way to bring new ideas to the club as our membership is rapidly growing. If you have an interest, please email alumnet@udel.edu.


Coach's Corner

The DC Club offers its members the unique opportunity to compete in co-ed social sports leagues throughout the year. These leagues provide an excellent opportunity to meet and mingle with other local DC Blue Hens. All leagues are part of the Capital Alumni Network (CAN, www.dcalum.org) in which our opponents are local alumni representing other schools from all over the country. The club competes in all five CAN sports leagues:
