This was the first stop on my bachelor party extravaganza in Philly. The pub is located up a flight of long stairs (mental note of Royal Stumble hazard!) There are some booths and table chair sets to the right a case of the bobble/nodding head dolls. My favorite was a headless George W Bush!! The bar is to the left. It is typical rectangle with about 10 stools. ALmsot everything is made of wood. The fermenters are viewable behind some glass. There is another room of tables and chairs for dining. We sat there. The were 5-6 beers on tap and no cask. Only on certain nites do they run a cask, just put a firkin on the bar and drink till its gone.
The beers were pretty tasty. Nothing overwhelming or mindblowing, but all were well crafted and easy to drink. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. We actually ran into him at MOnks later, more evidence of knowledgeable staff IMO.
Food is typical pub grub. I orderd a pulled pork sandwich, as is my normal at a new brewpub. Everyone at the table was pleased with their meal, but I was a little disappointed. The sandwich was a little dry and since it was on sourdough, this dried it even more. NOt a lot of sauce. Flavor was good but a little too dry for my tastes. Like I said everyone else was pretty happy, the Jumbalaya especially was a fan favorite.
Overall I enjoyed the pub and I am planning to come back into town for the Royal Stumble next time they hold it. Should be a fun time!
