While some bars have a few bottled beers and a few more on tap, d.b.a.’s selection is beyond staggering. While you will find plenty of beer connoisseurs here, you won’t find any watered-down lagers. d.b.a. has everything from Belgian Trappist Rochefort 10 to Brooklyn Brewery’s Black Chocolate Stout on tap, among countless others. If you want something stronger, they have dozens upon dozens of tequilas, whiskeys, and bourbons. Happy hour is every day of the week with one buck off all drinks, which start around $5. The bar has a revolving calendar of events from “Cheese Mondays!”—offering complimentary cheese, olives, and other goodies—to alcohol tasting nights with seasoned professionals who’ll talk about the booze as much as you’ll drink it. Grab a pint and a shot of bourbon, head for the outdoor garden if it’s warm out, and never think about drinking a Bud again.
