Visited on a Thursday evening just after opening. This place is a bit hard to find and parking is minimal. The tasting room is in the middle of the brewery. Typical space, dark, not kid friendly in the sense that the seating is minimal. Friendly folks but the wait for a beer can be long when there is only one person serving. Helpful. Were have trouble with one of the taps that day. Love their beers.

A visit to 3 Stars is an awesome experience. To begin with, you get 4 free (fairly generous-sized) tastes from the taps in the homebrew store area. Then you can buy flights ($6 for four 4-oz pours), pints ($5), and cans/bottles from the bar area. There's a separate set of taps where you can purchase growlers. Plus they offer (free) tours. Best of all, their beer is delicious and imaginative. Two thumbs up and I hope to return soon.

First, be prepared to look out for this place, another non descript place from the street, and watch the parking signs, DC is really strict about ticketing/towing, and this place does not have much parking of their own, so you are left to the street (don't even try neighboring businesses). However, once inside, it is a wonderful surprise. You walk into the brewery with the tasting room to your left. We got there early on a Tuesday, so finding a table was easy, but the place filled up by the time the after work crowd filtered in. Service is bar service, but the tender was very courteous and quick. Beer selection is amazing, about 12 on tap, and all were great quality. My wife, who is not the biggest beer fan, had some that she enjoyed. You can do pints for $5 or a flight of 4 choices for $6. This was a great gem to find in the DMV.

This place makes great beers, especially the Saisons. The people are generally friendly and helpful for both the beer tasting and the homebrew store. Oh yeah, did I mention there's a homebrew store in the brewery? Nothing amazing in terms of selection and somewhat strange hours, but a nice feature nonetheless.

Warehouse cul-de-sac, easy to find 'cuz there's always a food truck!
Wide open, warehouse taproom, wonderful wood bar right next to open, visible brewhouse. Great logo artwork on walls, service was great. Packed house, but expedited pours much as possible.
If I lived there, I would join the Illuminati club for reserve beers!

A bit hectic and hidden away but tons of fun. Like for growler fills can take awhile but is worth it.

These guys are growing, and you gotta appreciate their approach, they produce excellent saisons and are striving to be a major player in a fledgling DC beer scene. The tasting room bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly and they don't charge admission and offer free tastings of whatever they are currently brewing. Their brewing approach coupled with their artistic endeavors provide a unique and home grown approach to industry that is now become investor driven. I wish them well and recommend a visit
