From the fine folks at 3 Stars Brewing Company (6400 Chillum Place, NW):

“Heads up!!!! In case you haven’t seen all the coverage on social media, we are releasing our new Double IPA, #ultrafresh, today at the brewery. This beer is brewed with Glaxy, Topaz and Columbus hops and comes in at a nicee 8.3% abv. Big, juicy hop notes fill your nose and dance across your tongue before finishing with a well balanced bitterness. Doors will open at 4pm and there is a two 4-pack limit per customer. This is a very limited release and will likely not make it out into the market, so get yours while you can. Stay tuned for more details on upcoming releases and events including more info on next Sunday’s BBQ (5/22/16). Thanks for your support and keep drinking great local beer.”
