DC is known for being a bureaucratic nightmare when it comes to getting a building permit, but imagine trying to get one to build a brewery. Yet Dave Coleman and Mike McGarvey have managed to jump through the paperwork hoops and later this year will open 3 Stars Brewing Company at 6400 Chillum Place NW. "Our realtor pushed us into looking at space in Maryland and Virginia,” said Coleman. “But this is our town. There was never a question that we would set up outside the District.” Coleman and McGarvey searched high and low to find a place that would accommodate mash tuns and fermentation tanks and now that they have found one they are hard at work getting the building ready for the public.
