If you’re planning on day drinking, a stop at Dacha should be on the agenda. The year-round outdoor beer garden in Shaw serves a rotating mix of local and German beers and snacks, and even though it will inevitably get packed, it’s always a fun time. Head here for an afternoon, and you’ll probably end up sticking around until dinner.
