4.28/5  rDev +3.1%

Visited on day one of a 4 day northeastern pub crawl in June 2011. Really like the Colonial look of this place - not sure what it was like in previous live's but it's easy to imagine the founding father's dropping in for a pint. The focus of our trip was local beers and this was the best we found (out of NYC, Boston, Philly, & Baltimore) in meeting our goals.
Place was pretty packed on a Saturday night and we got seated in a smallish room upstairs shared with a dozen guys getting warmed up for a bachelor party. They were somewhat annoying (mostly BMC types) but finally left after a round of bro-hugs the likes of which I've never witnessed before (sure, City of Brotherly Love..., but every guy's gotta hug every other guy? - total of 132 hugs...). After that the service and atmosphere improved markedly. Philly is a great beer city and Standard Tap really showcases the great local offerings. Food was also quite good.

3.56/5  rDev -14.2%

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.
