Some last-minute issues have caused City Tap Dupont, one of the fall’s many most anticipated openings, to delay its grand opening until Monday, October 9.

The expansive 9,300-square-foot beer mecca at 1250 Connecticut Avenue NW was originally expected to open a week earlier, but “due to unforeseen circumstances” will now open days later, according to the managing team.

The plan is the serve dinner seven nights a week right out of the gate. Weekend brunch is projected to follow starting Saturday, October 14; expect bottomless mimosas and a make-your-own bloody mary bar for $18. Lunch will be added later this fall.

Weekday happy hour means drinks run $4 to $6, with $6 snacks like elote corn dip and Israeli hummus. Along with similar American fare found at nearby sister spot City Tap House in Penn Quarter, there’s no shortage of beer options: Expect 40 draft tap lines alongside 30 bottled and canned beers.
