Very Happy Hour in Falls Church

By Fritz Hahn

Northern Virginia beer lovers, here's the news you've been waiting for: The Dogfish Head Alehouse is opening at 5 p.m. in the Seven Corners Center in Falls Church.

"We don't have our signs up yet, and we don't have our landscaping done, so it looks like the building isn't open, but the inside is finished," says Joe Hospital, the managing partner for both this Dogfish Head restaurant and the Gaithersburg location.

Dogfish Head Brewery founder Sam Calagione, who hosted a beer dinner at Rustico on Tuesday night, will be in the house "to say hi to everyone who comes in," Hospital says.

Starting Thursday, Dogfish Head will be open at 11:30 a.m. every day. Expect the usual lineup of weird and wonderful Dogfish Head beers on draft, including the new seasonal Punkin Ale.

Hospital promises happy hour will be very similar to the one in Gaithersburg: Running from 4 to 7 p.m., it includes "$1 or $2 off all tapped beers, and a couple of bucks off selected appetizers -- wings, pizza, things like that."

A grand opening celebration with live music is planned for November 6.

-- Fritz

Is this a smoking or stink & cancer-free establishment?

Virginia is for smokers

Dogfish Head has the best burgers in Rehoboth proper. Are they serving the same ones, and styles at their restaurants over here? And what about their own liquors like rum and vodka that they have in Rehoboth? I suppose it's too much to ask for the half priced burgers and pizza on Mondays like over there too, huh?

it's a non-smoking establishment. The Seating is to the left, the bar is to the right when you stumble in. One downside, I only found one bathroom, and for an establishment of that size, it's awfully small.
