I've driven up from the DC area 4 times in the past 6 months to eat here. The ambiance here is great, with 3 different dining areas, airy rooms, interesting artwork on the walls and a feel that's neither polished nor gritty while managing to stay interesting. The quality and selection? 3+ EBB beers on tap, 5+ guest taps that are always interesting (I've had the Victory Braumeister Pils, Nodding Head Berliner Weiss, Elder, Blind Pig etc.). The EBB beers are always interesting, great in concept though sometimes, the execution can be lacking (the mild yesterday was too dry). Service is great, the wait staff are attentive, I've never had to ask for a refill of my glass of water even when they're packed.

The food is simply fantastic. The flatbreads really take what a flatbread can be to the next level. The crust is the best crust I've ever had and no matter where I am, I always find myself comparing the crust of the pizza I'm eating to EBB's. Exceptional for it's texture, moisture and flavor. The specials are always interesting and exceptionally executed. Simply said, this place is a class apart, and I can't see myself not going back often, despite the 5 hour drive round trip (1,190 characters)

Earth is great because they always have something new whether it's their beer, or their flatbreads. In my opinion, they have the best flatbreads and some of the best beers in Philly. They rarely repeat beer recipes, so they always keep it exciting that way. If you like a beer there so much that you can't live without it, get a growler for sure. (346 characters)

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. (1,293 characters)
