I read on BeerMenus about this place and their having Dogfish World Wide Stout 2010 and I just *had* to go ther.e So I talked the wife into driving over there- it is only seven miles from our abode in South Philly after all.

After getting lost a couple of times (we ended up driving by Cooper River Park), we arrived to The Pour House and man, was it busy. We couldn't find parking at all, Friday at 6:30pm... and we did get to the joint there was a 25-minute wait for a table and a mighty-packed bar.

This being Jersey, though, the 2010 World Wide Stout I had come here for was still on tap no problem... most of the patrons were drinking colorful mixed drinks and bottled beers.

When we did get our table, the wife and I sat upstairs and had a good time. Our waitress was busy but very efficient, and I got my second pour of WWS in no time.

They must have had a Troegs tap event because there were lots of them, including Master of Pumpkins, Scratch 83 (Impending Descent), Blizzard of Hops and three years of Mad Elf.

Behold Lagunitas Double Dry Hopped, Stone RIS and Double Bastard and more... prices are not bad, 6-7 dollars...

But the food wasn't so good. The wife went for a "Second Coming" burger that supposedly won Philadelphia Magazine's number one burger spot in 2013. Yes, it was good, Tremendous flavor and juiciness. My sausage-and-mushroom flatbread pizza was incredibly sad, though... and the menu is unimaginative, particularly coming from Philadelphia (no veggie/vegan options at all)

I am rating The Pour House highly because, for South Jersey, the tap list is phenomenal and I would come back for that. Otherwise... well, you know.

I visited The Pour House on a business trip to New Jersey.

The Atmosphere is pretty cool. They have a bar area and then a pure seating area separated by a small hallway. It's bit darker like many bars (compared to true restaurants), and it has a nice vibe to it.

The Quality was great. I enjoyed both the food and the beer with zero complaints.

The Service was great as well. We had a happy, helpful waitress who provided prompt service, knew how to pour a beer properly, and also spoke well about the beers they offered.

The Selection is fantastic. They have about 15-18 beers on tap with a wide variety of styles, and they also have a very nice bottle list. I personally enjoyed a couple different Maine Beer Company offerings which, up until this past week, were not available in Chicagoland where I'm from.

The Food was fantastic as well. I had The Zipper chicken sandwich, and I also go to try a couple bites of different burgers that my co-workers tried as well all shared our dishes. The onion straws are also fantastic.

This is my last night in the Cherry Hill, NJ area, and I'm going back again tonight. I will definitely visit again in the future.

Very reasonable in terms of price. You really feel that the food is priced right and is well thought out. Food is also very good, might I add.

I feel that the beer selection is top notch. The place seems to get what people want in this area at the time. The bartenders have no problem letting you "taste" a beer as well.

Well worth the trip. It seems like PJ's got the right idea here with a place that offers great food, awesome beer, above the bar atmosphere and good live music.

I just love this place.

vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 5 | food: 4.5

Atmosphere: A little funky eclectic with all of the lps and music posters on the walls. Nice bar area with about 40 seats. Bathroom is a little small. Tiny upstairs bar is always packed.

Quality: Really good small plates menu. Everything offered is high quality food that is a great value. Everything is upscale and tasty but not overly pricey. Beers sometimes are not the freshest but most of the draft offers are perfect.

Service: Getting a beer is quick and easy at the bar but is a touch slower at a table. People are nice but not the most knowledgeable about the beer selections.

Selection: Wow. They have soo many bottles to choose from. They also have about 15-20 rotating beers on draft. Plus I don't think they serve any bmc products.

Food: Food is banging. Love the pretzel bites with beer cheese and homemade potato chips with french onion dip. Also the Asian wings are really good.

Value: Excellent happy hour specials on craft beer. I love that.

Pretty cool place NJ, not too far from Cork, another beer-centric bar. There are about 15 or so rotating taps here, and well over 100 bottled brews, including many that I've never seen before. Decent menu with some really tasty stuff (my lovely wife's favorite meat-and-cheese plate!). Staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was, meh, kind of sportsbar-ish/family-oriented, but still definitely worth multiple visits merely based on the beer selection and food quality. Along with Max's Seafood Cafe, this is probably the best place for beer in the Jersey area directly surrounding Philly.
