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.

Have gone here off and on for the past ten years or so. A true gem in an area that needs it. Located near the original Chickie's and Pete's, it's a relaxed atmosphere with great beer, tasty food, and a solid staff. Scoats knows his stuff, and I am a big fan of the cajun wings!

Overall the cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. Bathrooms are pretty gross.
