I visited on a Friday evening. It was pretty busy (though not "packed"). This place is quite "different" than your typical brewpub/beerbar...Very contemporary, almost a European cafe flair to it. Bright and clean with a thin area with a long bar and a large oven in the back area. A flight of stairs leads to an upstairs that has a small, quaint feel. There is another small bar upstairs. A list of beers are on chalkboards both upstairs and downstairs. The artwork is unusual (almost a bit "disturbing". Very contemporary - I'm no art critic, so I suppose I just didn't "get it". There is a trendy feel (for lack of a better term). Didn't quite feel comfortable there. The staff (and even the general feel of the guests) wasn't friendly or unfriendly - formal, you could say.

Service was efficient enough. The glasses were not chilled, and beer served at appropriate temperature. There were four house beers - a "mild", a saison, an imperial pils and a stout. The mild was ok..."run-of-the-mill" blonde ale for the less venturous (a bit too yeasty for me). The beers were "decent" - nothing special, IMO. There were some local beers available as well (including from Yards, Philadelpia and Victory).

The food focused on the flatbread pizzas. My friends and I shared the pesto one - It was minimalistic. More like a "snack"... $14 for the large (and it was quite large - a good thing, as there wasn't much to it). It tasted fine - but, again, nothing special.

Unique.

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.
