NOTE: This event is sold out. The team behind 3 Stars beer is throwing a foodie block party Sunday at its Takoma brewery. While DJs spin summer dance tunes, you can sample six kinds of beer, including the juicy Two to the Dome double IPA and the rich From Russia With Love imperial stout; snack on barbecue prepared by chef Logan McGear of Smoke and Barrel, oysters from the Rappahannock Oyster Company and pickles from Gordy's Pickle Jar; and try cocktails made with Green Hat Gin and Angel's Envy bourbon. Tickets are $10, which includes a tasting glass and your first beer; the rest of the food and drinks will be sold a la carte.
