Dock Street Brewing Company…….Philadelphia

Dock Street is in an interesting location on 50th St, the road it’s on is very nice and jam packed. As you drive around to find parking you will stumble on areas that are…..not nearly as nice. All within minutes of each other, gotta love cities.

In a refurbished firehouse, love the old industrial look. Exposed brick, tough floor. Small tables out in front and in the main part as you walk in. A long horizontal bar houses about 15 stools, the taps and the infamous brick fired pizza.

My wife and I were devastated to find out they had just tapped their keg of Sudan Grass, the gluten free beer that got so many good reviews and was one of our reasons for coming. Rats rats rats.

As she sipped her wine in sorrow I began to try some of their offerings. I had the Summer Session, the Bohemian Pils, and the OMG Pale Ale. All were good, if not quite spectacular.

What was spectacular was the pizza. My god. I had a simple cheese one and it was amazing, the wife ordered a burger and sweet potato fries that were also amazing. Great to see the open kitchen and the food being made right in front of you.
We sat the bar, our bartenders were attentive and helpful. Place filled up quickly.

Overall, cool place to come. Ok beer, dynamite pizza, great vibe. Make it a stop.

Atmosphere- People packed in like cattle and hipsters abound. I am actually kinda cool with being packed in, I have eaten at some great Korean and Vietnamese places which have the ambiance of slaughterhouses, they made up for it the food, this place didn't.

Food- I cook better pizza at home in my oven, not a joke or an exaggeration. If I can do good in my shitty low rent housing oven, then these guys should be able to do great in their pizza oven. The sad truth is that they don't and apparently can't.

Beer - I have tasted numerous home brews that were better than the thin and watery substances being passed of as beer at this place. When you make your claim off of beer and call yourself a brewery, you should at least have decent beer. This stuff might have come out of a giant Mr. Beer in back, it was no joke that bad.

Overall- Philly is the best place for beer lovers on the East Coast, period! That being said there are so many places in Philly that do an amazing job, why would you waste time at this place? If it was just a hipster haven I could overlook that (like Local 44), if it just had poor food and kick-ass beer I would forgive it that, If it had poor beer at a cheap price and kick-ass food I would down delicious pizza with cheap IPA. Unfortunately, Dock Street has none of the redeeming qualities and all of the negatives.
