Chipotle is testing out a new restaurant with an Asian twist in Washington, D.C.’s  Dupont Circle neighborhood.  Shophouse Southeast Asian Kitchen features the same Chipotle assembly line food preparation, and a solid beer selection.  For $4.09 + tax you can enjoy a BeerLao, Singha, Chang, or Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA.

  • BeerLao is a lager made with rice.  It is currently the best selling beer in Laos and brewed by Lao Brewing Company.  Ownership of the brewery is split 50/50 between the Lao government and Carlsberg Breweries.
  • Singha is a Euro Pale Lager brewed by Boon Rawd Brewing Company in Thailand.  The bottle label includes a golden lion, a reference to the name.  A Singha is a lion described in Hindu and Thai stories.
  • Chang is the best selling beer in Thailand.  The lager is 6.4% ABV and sold in a 630 milliliter bottle (22 oz. bomber size).  Chang means ‘elephant’ which are featured on the bottle label.
  • Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA might seem like an odd choice, but it does make sense.  The beer is brewed in Milton, DE which is about 100 miles from Washington DC.  The IPA also pairs well with spicy food.
