Well we walked down the block to Standard Tap after waiting a while at North Bowl. After hearing so many good thing's about this place I was excited.
When we walked in we just said damn this is a tight fit with more than a couple people in our party it was tight. My first intial thought was this is it? A very dark bar and what seemed to be kind of dirty. The waiters seemed to be a little overworked and agitated. Not very friendly. So we decided to walk upstairs. It was a little better. More room and a friendlier atmosphere. Must of us ended up getting the kilty pleasure which seemed to be free flowing.As for the tap selection I wasn't that impressed all PA beers and nothing else on the board.I love PA beers but I need a bit of a variety. All and all a decent placce but nothing worth going out of the way for a somewhat of a letdown.

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.
