We took the train out to Teresa's from Philadelphia due to its reputation for good craft beer. Teresa's did not disappoint. They had a nice Hill Farmstead Harlan. It was very crowded when we arrived, but we managed to get a coupled seats at the bar after a short wait. We were served promptly, and the tap list was very good, so we decided to put our name on the list for a table. Be prepared to wait to be seated though. It was a Saturday night, and very busy. We didn't mind the wait.

Teresa's has a nice atmosphere. The staff was friendly. The food was good, with generous portions. We ended up spending several hours here eating and drinking and joking with the waitress. Our party of four all agreed that it was worth a return visit, and worth the effort to take the train from Center City. If you are a beer geek like us, you must visit.

People keep making the correlation between this place and Monk's in Philly for a good reason; the food, the beer, the atmosphere, and the beer-savvy servers here would make you swear that this place is an offshoot of Tom Peters' fabled joint.

The one thing I do enjoy immensely about Teresa's is their geographical location and their (lack) of people; whereas Monk's is still my favorite bar on this side of the coast, it's very hard for me to have a relaxed evening where I can kick back and enjoy my beer with some Belgian-inspired finger food and pub fare, because well... everytime I end up going to Monk's it's always a freaking zoo inside -- good luck getting a seat at the bar unless you want to eerily stalk or creep behind one of the tenants until they get uncomfortable enough to move out of their seat.

That being said, the beer choice at Teresa's is almost as phenomenal as Monk's with about half the demand that Monk's gets; Bottles of Cantillon disappear within hours of hitting Monks, whereas I was able to enjoy a nice 75cl bottle of Iris here, followed by a 37.5cl bottle of 100% Lambic Classic Gueuze; the Russian River sours seem to be almost always be in ample supply here, and their rotating tap of harder to find Belgians is almost par with Tom Peters' eclectic weekly offerings.

The food here is absolutely amazing; I love that they have a charcuterie/cheeses option, as well as some dishes harder to come across (my friend tried his first escargot here) -- I would love to come back here to try the Dry-aged Wagyu in lieu of the Duck Confit Salad I had, and maybe try my hand at some of their other hearty entrees.

I'll have to give Teresa's Cafe a try as well since you can reportedly get the same drinks on either side of the establishment.
