The place was packed for the opening last night, with 30 minute waits and a crowded bar. People in Virginia really like their Dogfish Head.
The food was all right, but it’s the beer in the spotlight here, and that’s fantastic. They offer a happy hour from 4-7, flights of 6 ales for $8, and an extensive list of Dogfish beers, with lots on tap and many harder to find ones in the bottle (including some that are out of season).
My only complaint: no prices on the beer menu. I don’t mind buying a $13 bottle once in a while, but I like to know about it first! Luckily the Immort Ale is a tasty brew, and at 11% abv I was feeling too good to worry about it.
