This is a really cool place to hang out. It a bit out of the downtown district, so you get much more of a local crowd. The tap handles are all mini chalk boards which is fun and innovative. They have a beer cooler for bottles next to the bar. We went two nights in a row when visiting town.

The South Philly Tap Room is a nice cozy corner bar deep in the heart of, huh, South Philly. In the middle of a residential area, not far from East Passyunk but removed from all the brouhaha.

This is truly a neighborhood tavern, cozy and inviting. Not too busy on a Friday night, quiet enough. We sat across from the bar on a low-lying table and enjoyed the view.

12 taps plus a nitro (Old Chubb) and a cask (PBC Newbold): Union Jack, Hairy Eyeball, Allagash White, Dogfish Noble Rot, Dieu du Ciel... nothing outrageous, but good enough (I had a Fernet Branca).

Brews go for $6-$8 a glass. Bottles: Abbaye des Rocs, Bruery Bois, Deschutes Conflux #1, Mikkeller Walk on Water. Pretty nice... and some good food as well- I just had a Wild Goose oyster with blood orange and ginger mignonette ($2) and a head-cheese taco ($1). This ain't your average chicken-wing joint! Lots of vegan and vegetarian options as well.

I was a little underwhelmed by the draft selection, but loved the place and the food and the atmosphere and would totally come back.
