The only problem I have with this place is that its not located in Nyack, NY. The story goes that when owners Tom and Peggy were looking to open a new place, a location in Nyack almost worked out..oh well..just gotta get down to Philly more often, I suppose.
High quality brew, both made by Tom and by others, thoughtfully selected. Seems to always have a few high quality Saisons on and pouring, so you cant go wrong there. Match that with a menu full of thin crust pizza, interesting salads, all made with local, high quality/artisinal ingredients, a comfortable, spacious layout, friendly and low key staff, gracious hosts T and P. I knew I was gonna love this place...how about a sister location closer to my house?!?

The wife and I were back in Philly, a bunch of weekends ago. We like Mt Airy/Germantown/Chestnut Hill/Fairmount/Whatever. There are not a lot of boundaries between all of these neighborhoods, but they are oh-so-beautiful, cozy, quaint, perfect for a chilly winter evening, morning, day.
We had tried once to stop at Earth Bread but it was closed. This time I did my homework and we went in on a Saturday afternoon before the crowds. Smallish place, we sat at the bar overlooking the pizza oven. There is also an upstairs section where families with babies were all headed.
4 beers on tap at the bar: Tripel, High Point Coffee Stout (nice and rich), Farmhouse, Dubbel and a Mild on hand pull. Also, 7 guest taps: Deschutes, Goose Island Sophie, Phila Brewing Co.
I like breweries who have guest taps to complement their short lineups, and I like it even more when a brewery offers housemade sodas and kombucha! Yessss....
Not bad prices, five bucks for a 13-oz glass and $6.50 for 20 ounces. The food was disappointing, though. You read about their flatbreads and you can't help but expect some amazing yumminess. When it comes out, it is a soggy-mushy mess of an overwhelmed dough. Toppings had no flavor.
Bartender was nice, beers are fun, place is warm. I will come back, no doubt.
