Earth Bread and Brewery in Mt. Airy, PA.

Nice little cobblestone neighborhood with lots of coffee houses. Cool decoration on the outside, inside is lots of wood, earthy colors, relaxed. Two floors, downstairs has a bar, a few tables and the oven, upstairs is another bar and a very nice cozy dining room.

Beers are varied, had about six of their own and were running a Victory promotion with six Victory beers, also a selection of wines. I had a Belgian amber and a dark wheat, both house beers, both were unique and very good.

Menu is full of different flatbread pizzas and salads, I built my own Earth Bread and Brewery in Mt. Airy, PA.large flatbread, it was really really good. Service was pleasant, but be prepared to wait a little for your pizza. Prices were reasonable.

Overall, wow. This is a unique and great brewpub with good beer, good food and lots of character. A must try.

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.

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.

Fairly unassuming exterior. Upon entering, your a greeted with a staircase to the upstairs bar and dining area or an entry way to the main floor. The main downstairs has a bar with some hightop seating around the perimeter and a big brick and stone pizza oven in the rear corner. Upstairs has another small bar and significantly more seating. Overall vibe is okay, lots of recycled and reclaimed wood and industrial scraps, local art hangs on the walls.

Only 4 of their house beers available, none ever repeated. Four feels like too little for frequent visits and long drinking sessions. A dozen or so guest taps also available, mostly local or regional with a few larger domestic craft offerings. Most house beers showcased a nice cereal grain quality, but hops were lacking.

After visiting American Flatbread in Burlington, VT, we were excited to visit a place inspired by there. Flatbreads are good with unique combinations of minimal ingredients on most. Some were too cheesy and bready and lacking in particular ingredients to get all the subtle nuances of flavor. The crusts are good, but a little thicker than I prefer for a flatbread.

Service friendly and knowledgeable and the prices were okay. If it wasn't for the location and limited house taps, id be back more frequently.

Not your typical brewery or beer bar, but Tom(owner/brewer) knows his beer and is a top notch brewer. If i was reviewing just Tom's beer this review would be an A+

Chances are you won't find the same (in house) beer here on a recurring basis but you will find something you like. Most offerings tend to be on and then gone, but there is a good selection of in house brewed beers along with "guest" taps and bottles

No tv's and could use some more bar seating (has a second bar, but it is not always open and is on the second floor away from the other) Food is basically just flat bread and on the pricier side for the size. Would be nice to see a more expanded menu on the food side. No daytime hours during the week is disappointing as it would be a great place for lunch.

A great neighborhood brewpub. They usually only have 3 of their own beers on tap, but the rotate them quickly so there's always something new. I get the impression they don't repeat much. Guest taps are quality craft beers. On my two visits, their IPA, Kolsch, and Berlinerweisse were all great.

Service was excellent on one trip, 'merely' good on the other. The seed pizza is creative and delicious. Non-flatbread food is okay, but I'd stick with the flatbreads. Looks to be family friendly and solo friendly - a good casual option for any occasion.
