“Homebrewing was made legal in United States under the presidency of Jimmy Carter during the late 1970s. Since then, homebrewing has become a popular hobby in urban communities, giving way to small breweries, craft beer and a DIY movement. This video offers a glimpse of the growing Washington D.C. beer and homebrew scene. Featuring interviews from Mike Tonsmeire, Nathan Zeender and Thor Cheston.”

Ed. Note: The recently opened 3 Stars Brewing has a homebrew store at 6400 Chillum Place, NW open Thurs. 4-8; Fri. 3-8; and Sat. 10am-6pm.
