The last time I was at dock street they were in a center city location about 10 years ago.

I drove up to see if they had any bottles left from a recent release, fortunately they did. Rhw neighborhood is good where the bar is, but driving up I did get a bit concerned. The building is an old firehouse, it looks pretty cool from the outside. The inside did not really do it for me. The bar is big and nondiscript, nothing real catchy on the walls. Behind the bar they have a brick pizza oven, which is actually pretty cool.
I got there about 3:30 on a Wed and the place was dead. They have 6 beers on tap, so I ordered the sampler. I enjoyed all of them. I did order a pint of the kolch afterward with some fries. The beer was reasonably priced, the bartender was friendly and the menu looked pretty good. I will have to hit up Dock Street again in the future.

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.
