Several hundred people came to the normally laid back Dacha Beer Garden for its opening day on Saturday. "It was insane," a rep tells Eater. "Lines even outside the gate to get inside." Luckily, despite the staff being overwhelmed by the crowds, those who came were generally friendly and patient, she said.
Dacha's first day of service was Saturday, and now they're launching a weekday happy hour to keep things going this week. It kicks off today, and will run Monday-Thursdays, 4-7 p.m. Weihenstephaner Pilsner and Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen drafts will be discounted to $5 singles and $10 doubles/boots during happy hour, among other deals.
They're also trying to add a different theme to each night's happy hour. Monday is service industry night; Tuesday is geared towards real estate professionals. Wednesday will be the Shaw neighborhood happy hour, and Thursday has been deemed "Hillbillies Happy Hour," dedicated to Capitol Hill workers.
