Hotel bar, the feel of a sports bar with historic Philly sports photos on the wall. Dirty carpet, sticky tables and wobbly chairs as one enters, bar area a bit nicer with 20 or some seats, plenty of TVs and loud juke box, even at 4pm on a Saturday.
20 taps, suprisingly good tap and bottle selection, but... happened to be out of my first 3 choices with no backup's brought on. Had a dIPA which was well past its prime which was sticky and sweet with hop charachter faded away. Belgian strong dark ale on nitro? - They thought it was a stout. Pint glass of 10% ABV old ale? Everything served ice cold? A place of this quality should not have this tap selection.
Server was friendly, but not overly knowledgeable and a bit slow. Confused a few beer orders for same brand, different style/beer. Food was sub par at best - super market sale quality ingrediants and hurried preparation.
If I was awarding points for the tap selection compared to most other hotel bars, this would be slightly higher, but the outdated tap list, lack of attention to detail and sub-par food wont allow that to show up in this review.

Stopped in for lunch I had a burger and fries the burger was ok the fries were very thin. The selection of tap beer in this place was amazing. They had Founders on tap Troegs Mad Elf i think there was at least 20 taps. Very nice but i have to agree with the other comment the beer is very very cold. The staff was nice but very slow when i sat at the bar it took over 5 mins for the bartender to ask me what i wanted.And everything is served in a pint glass. I might stop in again if im in the area not for the food or service just the beer selection.

As soon as you walk in you're greeted with a grand setup of 30 taps that are book ended by two coolers that display all of their 50+ bottle selection. They rotate their selection pretty frequently and have some pretty good specials on quality beers. The bartenders are fairly knowledgeable and 1 even performs magic tricks. The food is pretty tasty and better than most of the bars in the area. Not many people realize this hidden gem is there because it is tucked away in the crowne plaza. It is definitely worth checking out.

Brady's has a pretty good selection. They have about 15-20 beers on tap. Only complaint...their ICE cold. They have 2 clear fridge doors on both sides of the bar...with their entire selection available and visible. Brady's has about another 20-30 beers available by bottle. The staff knows their beer pretty well and they rotate their beers pretty often.
The food is VERY good. Brady's is attached to a hotel so there's a lot of traffic walking by, but if that doesn't bother you, it's a pretty cool atmosphere. Have to try their "chips"!
Overall the prices aren't too bad...fairly reasonable. Pretty average.

Brady's is tucked away in a Hotel on Street Road in Bensalem. They have a very good rotating tap list and a nice selection of bottles. Was able to get a Founder's Canadian Breakfast Stout there on 8/22. The food is of a high quality too. Nice gastropub selection of sandwiches and the like.
One of the benefits of being a repeat customer is the card they give you. For every 15th different beer you try you get a reward on your 16th. Seeing as how they are always bringing in new beers it gives you a reason to keep coming back and trying new brews.
If you're in the area on a visit or if you've never been I highly recommend checking it out.
