Bardo Continues Its Protest of Dacha Beer Garden, Sorta

The owners of Dacha Beer Garden will have to wait longer until it gets its liquor license for its new location across from Nationals Park, even though the local ANC agreed to a settlement agreement last month. On Wednesday, ABRA dismissed the protest (consistent with DC law) from other neighbors except from “abutting property owners” Kristof Grina and Adam Porter (Grina is Farm Director for Up Top Acres, which operates a network of rooftop farms, including a few blocks away). The twist is that Grina and Porter are represented by Bill Stewart, who co-owns Bardo River Brewery next door; Bardo, through Bardawg, one of its Twitter accounts, said it would be protesting last month and followed through. It’s unclear which “abutting property” Grina and Porter own that allows them to keep the protest going; Bardo is located on property owned by Florida Rock Properties.

The protest hearing is currently scheduled for mid-August.
