As Atlas Brew Works celebrates its first year anniversary of pouring for D.C ., it's worth sipping a few of their noteworthy brews. Foremost among them is the Rowdy, a rye beer that tips the alcohol by volume scale at 6.2 percent. The rye mixes in with the normal assortment of hops and friends much the same way rye whiskey puts a different taste on a cocktail. Rye's peppery character makes it stand out. It's a little bitter. A little sour. A nice quaff on a hot day.
