A year after debuting in D.C., District Distilling Co. is getting in bed with local brewery 3 Stars to debut a new “beer-tail” program.

That means some of 3 Stars’ 40 beers, including malty Belgian-style brews, sours, and aromatic-accented brews, will be stirred alongside District Distilling’s lineup of vodkas and gins to create a batch of new $10 to $14 elixirs.

Beer cocktails will rotate as new brews, spirits, and seasons pop up. Current cocktails include Moon Cloud, featuring 3 Stars Above the Clouds farmhouse pale ale, Corridor Rye vodka, Campari, and orange bitters; the 14 Shades of Grey includes Wild June gin, early grey syrup, lemon juice, 3 Stars Ghost White IPA, water, and cucumber.

The drinks, now flowing at the U Street distillery, could also make their way into 3 Stars’ Urban Farmhouse tasting room.

The new way to imbibe coincides with DC Beer Week, with 3 Stars planning an all-day barre class and booze fest on Saturday, August 26.
