I have fond memories of this place. When I was in college, I visited Philly because of a GSA meeting (Geological Society of America). The meeting was at the convention center, and within walking distance of it. There was also the Independence Brewpub attached to the convention center, but I just read that place is closed.

Anyway, my college buddies and I found this place by accident. We were part of a huge pub crawl associated with the meeting. A bar we were suppose to go to would not let anybody in because of the shear numbers. My buddies and I then saw the sign for Nodding Head and quickly ran in. We climbed the stairs, and grabbed some seats at the very small bar. I really enjoyed all the beers I tasted. Grog, the chocolate stout, and the California Common were all very good. The quality was good. All fresh beer. The atmosphere can't be beat. Dim lighting, and wood all around. I was not all that impressed with the service. Pretty slow considering we were the only three people at the bar. It was hard to get his attention when we needed anything. Anyway, overall I enjoyed this place much better than the pub crawl, and visited this place several times while I was in town. A place I would recommend.

Went here on 8/9 during my latest trip to Philly. This place is average at best, and i wasn't all that impressed with their beers. They had a sour wheat beer which was very blah, bu their porter did seem to be pretty good. Service was fine in regards to getting a beer, but some of the waitresses were doing shots and drinking on the job. Seemed pretty unprofessional, and the place itself did not impress me.
There are a ton of other breweries / brew pubs/ bars in Philly worth seeing over this place. Not the worst, but probably would not stop here again.
