Dave Delaplaine, General Manager / Beer Director
A self-professed geek of all things beverage related, Dave Delaplaine’s true passion is beer, with a focus on all things local. As beer specialist at Roofers Union, located in the heart of Adams Morgan, Delaplaine works with 22 draft lines that change frequently according to the season and availability to offer cask and draft options as well as ciders.
From 2010-2014 Delaplaine worked at sister restaurant of Roofers Union, Ripple.
