Intern Guide: Beer for a buck

Fritz Hahn  |  Updated 07/03/2014

It's hard to find a pint for less than $5 in most dive bars these days. Unless, that is, you try one of these happy hours, where you'll pay no more than a buck. Just don't forget to tip.

 

Friday Happy Hour at the Bottom Line

Washington, DC  | 7/25 - 12/12

Friday happy hour at the Bottom Line is run on a countdown system: Miller Lite bottles cost $1 from 4 to 7 p.m., $2 from 7 to 9 p.m., then $2.50 until 1 a.m., at which point they drop to $1 until last call. Rail drinks cost $3 all night, and there are $3.50 baskets of wings to snack on.

 

Happy Hour at the Red Derby

Washington, DC  | 7/22 - 12/12

One of the hippest neighborhood bars around, the Derby is known for its menu of dozens of canned beers. At happy hour, which runs from 5 to 8 p.m. on weekdays, all beers drop $1 in price, which makes Schlitz and Natty Boh $1 per can. Whiskey shots are $3. Get there early for a seat on the roof deck.
