Weekend trip to Philadelphia, the wife wants some brunch. I scramble to find a place and BA takes me to Memphis Taproom. Unlikely neighborhood for such a great beer bar, very working class and outright ghetto around the edges.

The Memphis is a classic Philly corner bar repurposed into a slightly-hipster-but-very-welcoming craft establishment. Very chill all around, we sat at a table by the bar upfront but there is also a dining area on the back.

The bottled beer list is excellent and includes Sucaba, Fantome Saison, J.W. Lee’s vintages, lots of Belgian brews, Angel’s Share ’09… the taps (ten of them) are more limited: Dogfish 60 and Olde ’12, Lees Moon Raker, Sly Fox, Allagash White and two casks. I was expecting much more from one of the best beer bars in Philadelphia, but I wasn’t terribly unhappy. The brunch bloody mary’s were wow!

And so was the food. I had a vegan brunch to die for, including a tofu scramble and smoked coconut. Serious flavor. Brunch and brews for two came up to around fifty bucks, while single beers are priced at six or seven dollars. Probably my favorite part of Memphis was the service. So incredibly nice!!

This could be the best local hangout EVER.
