The Grey Lodge is unique in my experience. It is a standard local taproom in a working class neighborhood of Philadelphia with the usual clientele most of the time. The big difference is their beer selection. They specialize in microbrews, having ten on tap the night I visited. The place is retro-seedy, but the bar tenders are friendly and knowledgeable. The beer is served at the perfect temperature. It is well poured, and their beer is always fresh. They change the pours weekly so that you know it is fresh. At about 7:00, they bring out a cask-conditioned beer and serve that. The night we were there it was a undistinguished Flying Fish Dubble but many weeks they serve much better stuff.

We had a selection from Troegs, Brewer's Art, Sly Fox, Weyerbacher, Victory, Yard's, and Appalachian. They also had Yuengling's Lager, PBR, and Coors Light on tap, and they were popular with the locals.

This place has a lot of characters with many special celebrations, the most unique restrooms in the world, and plenty of sports TV and talk. The menu is very, very limited. They have two things: tomato pies, and a pepperoni pizza wrap. Sometimes they have a mushroom pizza wrap. What they have is delicious, and it is unreasonable to expect more since they don't have a real kitchen, but I would have liked even some cold sandwiches. Anyway, the place is worth another visit or three.
