This neighborhood place does so many things so well. It's a place that you can as easily take a date to as someone could their kids. Large dining area upstairs with a more intimate downstairs. The heat and bready aroma from the "brick" oven perfume the space as does a wonderful and refreshing selection of music from Johnny Cash to classic jazz to more obscure indie rock all at a volume where it can be appreciated as well as your conversation. The bartenders are all friendly and attentive while the servers are quiet and efficient. The menu is limited to flatbread pizza and a few other items. But it is among my favorite around. The crust has a texture that is at once crisp yet chewable. The toppings can be restrained (tomato and cheese) or in your face (proscuitto with fig compote goat cheese and sea salt). The beer selection is house beers brewed on the premises guest beers on draft and bottle selections. In the year that they've been open I don't think that I seen or drank the same house beer yet. The brewer likes to experiment some are ok many are fantastic few are a bust. The adventure of it is worth multiple visits; although for some that could be a turn off. The wine selection is well thought out as well with North America, South America and Europe well represented.
My only complaints are that I'd like to see a broader menu and steady cask offering of a house beer. When the cask is on it has been typically a guest offering.
Thanks

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.
