Tucked away in the recently rehabbed Northern Liberties section, Standard Tap is an eclectic bar that offers a unique experience to its patrons: they serve local beer and local beer only. Youll not find Anheuser-Busch rearing its ugly head here; and a hand pump at the first floor bar is a welcome sight of both nostalgia and true beer appreciation. Parking is relatively easy and the crowd is a laid-back mix of trendy twenty-somethings with a slightly edgy twist, coupled with a welcome lack of pretense. Although it gets busy on weekends the crowd is never unbearable. Above and beyond all that, the food is excellent as well. A good showing from your standard bar fare is complemented by sophisticated lighter fare and creative specials. And as if all that wasnt good enough, The Foodery opened a second location next door. In all my visits, Ive never had a bad experience here and would highly recommend a visit for a good sampling of the regions best brews.
