Dot’s Hop House Fifth Anniversary
A craft beer bar and beer garden in Deep Ellum opened in 2016, which feels like an eternity in the Deep Ellum years. Their creation of a vast outdoor space now seems far-sighted in these post-pandemic times and likely helped them survive. They will celebrate the occasion by typing rare beers, with drink specials and freebies, including a birthday t-shirt for the first 150 people. The party starts at 1 p.m., live music starts at 2 p.m.
