My colleague Chris has the latest on another brewery setting up shop within District limits. Meet 3 Stars Brewing Company, a start up that’s been brewing throughout the region while its home gets built in Takoma Park:

Most of the permits and licenses are already in place. “All we have left to is do is, basically, some construction work over the next few weeks and then get our health inspection and our [certificate of occupancy],” he says. “We’re looking to be releasing beer in the first quarter of 2012.”
