The wife and I stopped here before having an early dinner at Le Virtu down the road. Walking around Passyunk is fun, so many restaurants, bars and little shops… The Pub defies expectations.

It looks like one of those Philly bars where construction workers gather around to drink bottles of Budweiser, but in reality it is a dark, almost claustrophobic bar that plays Motorhead and old heavy anthems at full throttle and has a tap list that happens to be outrageously good.

The place was packed, tight and so dark. The low ceiling seems to be almost on the verge of falling over your head. The ambience reminded me of the heavy-metal I would frequent when I was a teenager.

But the beer. Oh the beer... how about Weyerbacher Insanity, Crème Brulee, Founders All Day, Nugget Nectar, Chouffe, Spring House Satan's Bake Sale, Glazen Toren Saison, Die Pedre Marcel… fifteen taps altogether.

Service was a little iffy. It took too long to get our beers, and the bartender refused to give me a half pour of Insanity and Brulee. Next visit I'll try to find some room at the bar (it was packed this time around).We didn’t have any food as we were headed to a fancy evening, but I saw some revolting-looking nachos on the table over from us.

Will definitely come back for the tap list! Also to explore the bottle list, which judging by other reviews seems to be rather excellent. Alas, our server did not offer me a bottle list...
