Located conveniently close to the River Link ferry and Penn`s Landing is the Khyber Pub. This is a dive bar with a great happy hour special and a good range of beers. You will see a crowd with bike messengers, music fans, the young and the old. They carry beer From bottles of Yuengling to a couple nice belgian bottles and some local PA craft beers on tap from Yards and others. Service is very good, bartenders manage to keep up well with a loud and thirsty crowd. A great spot to have a couple inexpensive pints/bottles of American beer.

Staff made the difference. Plus a fried green tomato blt that was truly exceptional. Loved it. Nice range of options for beer - I tend to be picky but found plenty of options, including a pricey Norwegian snifter that was twice as expensive as all other beers - but surprisingly worth it for the experience. Funky area of Philly. One of few I found recommended here on Advocate.com worth a repeat visit.

This place is the bomb. The wife and I bar-hopped around Old City on a Saturday evening and this was our favorite joint. So different, and far removed from the suburban-white-kid-and-fratty-drunkenness crowded atmosphere of other bars in the area.
This is more of a South Philly corner bar, cool and quiet. 20 taps and 2 casks, with some stunning stuff from Goose Island (I assume they had a Goose event): Bourbon County, Bourbon County Barleywine, Matilda, Pere Jacques, Illinois... plus Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball, Philadelphia Brewing Company, Sly Fox...
Funny music (80's Hall & Oates-style tunes), nice bartenders and bouncer, perfect table by the window looking on 2nd street and all the action. I dig this place. j
Prices weren't so cheap for the Bourbon County stouts... $10 each. But the regular brews are fine at around $6. Definitely a gem in Old City I will return to often.
