Located in northern liberties in Philadelphia is Standard Tap. They have two floors and is dark inside as mentioned in other reviews, chalkboards list what they have on tap. A lot of young people were here as well as some older locals, "hipster" seems to describe their typical clientele. The bar offers lots of local PA beers, Yards and others. It gets very crowded on weekend evenings, with a nice view on the second floor of 2nd street below you. Overall, a better than average bar, but I was a tad disappointed on the tap list when I went there. But, that has something to with my favorite beer style preferences not on that particular night. Anyways, check it out if you find yourself in northern liberties. (712 characters)

If you are looking for a cool local jaunt that serves primarily PA beers, this is it. I have had quite a few special Bullfrog beers here. Troegs, Victory, Neshaminy Creek, Weyerbacher are always on tap here. Bartenders are cool. Food is really good. Worth the stop for local craft. (286 characters)

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. (898 characters)

Stopped in here for the first time last week while we were in the area. I have always heard how great this place is, time to see if that is accurate.

Nice sized space with a good amount of seating area. Atmosphere is all over the place. From older people to beer geeks to hardcore hipsters. The smallish bar on the left has the drafts and menu listed above it. Service was pretty good as well. Our server seemed to know her stuff and she came to check on us a few times during our short visit. Selection was great. All but two of the drafts from PA. I got a Dock Street Berliner and it was decent. Only had time to get one beer but I saw a few others I would have liked to try. On a recent visit I stayed long enough to get some food, went with the Standard Burger which was really good and the fries were just as good.

Overall a place that I am sure I will stop at many times in the future. (893 characters)
