The District’s budding local craft beer scene has been full of firsts over the past year. Here’s another one: 3 Stars Brewing Company, a production brewery set to open in Takoma in early June, will house the District’s first home brew supply store. Co-founders Mike McGarvey and Dave Coleman announced today that the brewery’s on-site tasting room will offer their fresh craft brews as well as “an assortment of high-quality ingredients, production kits, tools, literature and other supplies necessary to home brewers of every skill level.”
The growing number of District residents taking the do-it-yourself approach to beer currently have to shop online or schlep out to Maryland or Virginia for provisions. Now D.C. home brewers, or at least the ones who live near the tippy-top of the diamond and close-by Maryland suburbs, will have a more convenient location to shop and gather.
Starting as early as Memorial Day weekend, the home brew store will be open Thursdays from 4 to 8 p.m., Fridays from 3 to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
