From our mailbag:
I’m Ray Deter, owner of d.b.a. 41 1st Ave between 2nd and 3rd Streets in the East Village, and we’ve just opened the doors of a new, big, beautiful d.b.a. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at 113 N. 7 Street between Berry and Wythe Streets. We’re open every day from 4pm to 4am. We have 16 beers on tap, 3 Hand Pulled, Real Ale Lines, many whiskeys single malt, bourbon, rye, etc. We will be tequilas, and will hold regular tastings with artisinal cheeses, charcuterie, and other specials (last week we had a tasting and beer pairing with bacon brittle from Jonathan White’s Bobolink Farms, and may make it a regular offering due to its huge popularity.) The Williamsburg d.b.a. is bigger than the East Village d.b.a, with XX square feet, a brand new customized bar made of bamboo, and that warm and familiar, inviting d.b.a. atmosphere. Like the East Village d.b.a., the Williamsburg d.b.a. also has a back patio, which we will open in the spring.
