Nationals fans: Head to section 139 for local beer

After two seasons of pleading from local fans, Nationals Park is upping its local beer lineup. Port City, DC Brau and 3 Stars say their beers will be available beginning Saturday tonight outside section 139 in right field, along with Mad Fox. "I hope they'll see that people want it, and they'll end up giving us more kiosks," says DC Brau's Brandon Skall. 3 Stars co-owner Dave Coleman delivered a load of the brewery's Citra Lemon Saison to the ballpark earlier today and says he expects to rotate beer styles throughout the rest of the season's remaining home games.

Nationals Park had been selling a limited number of regional craft beers in the Red Porch and Red Loft, including Flying Dog, Dogfish Head and Heavy Seas, but it's nice to see them giving local beers the attention they deserve.
