dba, slipped, slipping or am I wrong?

MOREKASHA | Jan 20, 2010 11:24 AM

I've been going to dba (Manhattan) since it opened. I go about once a month or so, so I'm not a regular or bar fly. It seems to me that the draft selection hasn't been that tasty in the past year and that the turn on the tap lines is slow. Sometimes you'll see a draft that was tapepd 2-weeks previously. Hell, when I stopped by the Brooklyn branch recently, it was even worse. When dba opened, it was breath of freshair, good brews, cask ale, no TV, no stupid, excessive beer signage. The competition is much greater these days and they seem to be falling down. Pacific Standard while ugly has great stuff, Spuyten Duvil, The Gate, the late & lovely Lenoras Way....what's up?
