There's a long-running debate as to whether the name stands for "doing business as," "don't bother asking" or "drink better ale." We'll argue for the latter: d.b.a. boasts more than 60 varieties of beer, from hand-pulled ales and seasonal boutique microbrews to fruit-infused lambics. Twenty single-malt Scotches and more than twenty tequilas round out the list. A giant, covered back patio does a convincing impression of a Bavarian beer garden—and creates breathing room. After work and on weekends, the crush of khaki can be unbearable, as can the wait for attention from the leather-clad ladies behind the bar.
