First off, this place is a gem and you should put it on your "places to visit when in Philadelphia list" right away! North Liberty neighborhood, classy multiple room, dual bar set up. Great comfortable athmosphere, friendly staff, high quality local micros only on tap. No bottles. Extensive tasty food menu, we went for brunch on a sunday morning and had one ot the tastiest breakfasts I've ever had. Beer, oysters and then baked eggs on sort of a chorizo chili bed, with some corn bread, wow, spicy, tasty and filling! This is a very worthwhile and and highly BA worthy beer stop.

I feel like Standard Tap is one of the few “top beer bars” in Philly I had not yet visited. So there I rode, a couple of fast miles from my jawn in South Philly.
The Standard is a cool, spacious bar, with lots of room to roam. Quiet on a Wednesday evening. The bartender, as usual in Philly, was aloof and distant, with that I-saw-you-but-I’m-going-to-ignore-you-for-a-while look. Good music, though, Radiohead style.
The food menu is pretty large but pricey, with nothing under ten bucks except for fries. The taps are largely local/regional (PA): Troegs Scratch 145, SlyFox, Bullfrog, Weyerbacher, Yards, Dogfish, Flying Fish… all low-ABV as well. Not bad, but not exciting (except for the amazing Troegs Scratch)
Dollar off Happy Hour is all I got as a special. Nice stop, but I wouldn’t rush to try it again. There are a lot of beer bars where the tap list and service are better.
