Atlas Brew Works will join three other DC breweries – 3 Stars, Chocolate City and DC Brau.
From a press release:
Atlas Brew Works, the District’s newest production craft brewery, today announced the signing of a distribution deal with Premium Distributors of Washington DC, the leader in beer distribution within the District.
“Premium’s track record in craft beer speaks for itself,” said Atlas CEO Justin Cox, “They have the
infrastructure, resources, and professionalism to best represent Atlas in the District.” Atlas Brew Works, founded by Cox and award winning professional brewer Will Durgin, is on track to open this summer with three beers: Rowdy, a hop-forward American-style ale, accented by peppery rye notes, District Common, a California Common featuring Czech Saaz hops, and a third beer which will remain a surprise.
“We are thrilled to be working with a local DC brewery,” commented John Zeltner, President of Premium
Distributors of Washington DC, “Atlas will fill a void in our craft portfolio by offering a DC local and enhance our great selection of beers. Justin and Will are passionate brewers with a commitment to brew high quality beer; we look forward to partnering with them for many years to come.”
The collaborative efforts of Atlas and Premium will guarantee beer drinkers within the District can enjoy a pint of fresh, locally crafted beer wherever fine beverages are served.

From a press release:
Experienced homebrewer Justin Cox is teaming up with longtime friend and accomplished commercial brewer Will Durgin to bring the District of Columbia fresh craft beer from Northeast DC. Atlas Brew Works plans to install its 20 barrel brew house at 2052 West Virginia Ave NE and begin producing unique local brews in the first quarter of 2013.
Atlas Brew Works’ beer portfolio will include American style craft ales and lagers along with an extensive sour and barrel aging program. The beers will be crafted with careful consideration to food pairings and a flare for experimentation. Cox and Durgin became friends while attending Vanderbilt University as engineering students. While there, they developed a taste for the full flavor and complexity of American craft beer, and dreamed of one day opening a brewery of their own.
