Visited Earth Bread + Brewery twice now, so I figured I would throw up a Beerfly review since this place is pretty new.

EB+B is situated in a cool Philly area neighborhood with lots of other dining options and plenty of unique shops. The interior of the brewpub is pretty spacious, with multiple levels of seating and an upstairs bar. A variety of local artwork decorates the walls of the establishment, a nod to its eclectic nature I suppose, and is a testament to the wide variety of people I've noticed on both of my visits.

Their beer selection features a pretty nice variety of house taps (there were four during each of my visits) and several guest taps, all of which were craft brewers. I've seen West Coasters like Rogue and Lagunitas as well as PA selections from Philly, Troegs and Victory. they even had Founders Centennial IPA on tap! While their house brew roster is pretty eclectic (they had a gruit ale, ESB, Baltic Porter and dark mild), I found my selections to be only average or mediocre in the grand scheme of things... certainly not of the quality of its Philly-area contemporaries.

Their "flatbreads" (ie. pizzas) are pretty tasty, but don't have anything on Dock Street's amazing pizzas, IMO. We sampled the traditional and Roasted Vegetable flatbreads, and both were enjoyable. Service was overall very pleasant during both visits, so nothing to really shake a stick at there.

While it hasn't become one of my favorite Philly spots yet (that would be reserved for Dock St. and Nodding Head), I will be sure to stop in from time to time and try some of their brews.

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.
