A new beer hall from D.C.’s 3 Stars Brewing Company is expected open next to its original space in Takoma, Washington City Paper reports.

Founders Mike McGarvey and Dave Coleman signed a deal a year ago to take over the vacant church space neighboring its debut brewery, tasting room, and home brew retail shop at 6400 Chillum Place NW.

Coleman tells WCP the new addition will look like “traditional German beer hall with an urban feel” thanks to graffiti painted by local artist. There will be 30 taps, communal wood tables, and a selection of live music. Its sour beer-production facility will live in the back, stocked with about 150 barrels.

Since opening in 2012, the brewing team has released over 40 different distinctive beers with flagships that include a Peppercorn Saison and potent Pandemic Imperial Porter.

Instead of inviting food trucks into the space, a small kitchen is expected to offer meats, cheeses, sausages, and sandwiches. WCP reports that Coleman is connecting with culinary contacts at Chiko and Taco Bamba to potentially host week-long pop-ups.
