Their motto: "Drink good stuff." Thankfully, you have no other option but to do just that at this East Village beer bar. At D.B.A., you'll find an extensive selection of draught beers, Belgian imports, and hand-drawn ales, as well as a formidable stock of tequila (around 50 varieties!).

Here's where you go to maximize your beer-drinking street cred.
