Most people know of or have heard about the great beer bar in the East Village... it's true: d.b.a. has an excellent rotating selection of tapped and bottled beers, from the local avant-garde to the international classics. Look for chocolate stout from Brooklyn, cider from upstate, raspberry lambic from Belgium... and their ample selection of draft beers includes the display of which day the kegs were tapped. What many people don't know is that they also have a truly excellent collection of spirits, so pick your poison and enjoy the outdoor roofed garden, or participate in the full schedule of guided tastings.
