Dashen is out of town, on the way to the airport. Take a minibus and get there cheap.
Fresh beer sold by the glass, pitcher or meter. Pretty good roast chicken.
Filled with locals having a good time.

This place is fantastic. The best, fresh beer. Order a 3 liter tower, listen to some Ethiopian reggae, and contemplate the beauty of life.

If you want to drink this is the place to visit. They're beer is super cheap and delicious. The music and atmosphere is also excellent. The food is so so, and the only real criticism I have is that they serve no other drinks and will not let you bring in your own water. If you haggle with the guards a bit they will often let you sneak in your own bottled water. So great place for drinks with friends, ok food, sneak in your own water.

We enjoyed the lovely outdoor beer garden. A favorite place for locals to bring their guests, as well as to meet for a good time. Love Dashen beer. The food was pretty good and music was a mixed bag.

Ok Africa is probably famous for his music, safaris, beautiful people, amazing landscapes.. Beer is not really a distinguished African product. And if you are in Ethiopia, even if you can easily find several kind of different beers, you'll not have astonishing surprises. Anyway I have to admit that after years in this continent, to drink a draft Dashen at Dashen Brewery is always a pleasure. It's really difficult to find a local brewery in Africa, and this is a splendid exception. But please don't go too late (after 10pm). They could deny to serve you a fresh beer.
