It's the first beer bar I have ever been to that will not give you a small taste of a brew to try before you buy. They will only sell you a 4 ounce pour. If after the first sip you don't like it - well that's just tough. They've got your money. The bartender claimed "it's policy".
I just checked my own "policy" to remind myself never to go there again. Thank heavens the great beer city of Philadelphia has enough wonderful beer destinations that take their clientele a little more seriously.

Resurrection is one of those beer places I’ve had on my Philly bucket list for quite a while. Now that I live here, I wasted no time and went there ASAP. On a Sunday morning at high noon, the place was surprisingly quiet. I thought it’d be rather jammed with folks doing brunch and all of that.
Small corner bar with a funky configuration, two levels, a bar, bunch of tables… the tap list is obscure and interesting: Oxbon, Trois Dame Grande Dame, Dead Man’s Hand Imp Stout, Pays d’Auge Cidre, Dogfish Red+White, Stillwater, Brewer’s Art… 12 taps total.
The bottle selection is small but enticing, with 15-dollar bottles of World Wide Stout and vintage J.W. Lee’s Harvest among other goodies.
I absolutely loved my “brandade benedict”, a genius creation of pan-fried brandade cake with a poached egg on top. Pricey at 13 dollars for one single jawn, but damn delicious.
Service is friendly and knowledgeable, ambience is good alright (despite the screaming babies and preppy-white parents from overtly-gentrified Graduate Hospital) and the only downside is how expensive the whole thing came out to be: sixty dollars after tax and tip for three drinks and two food items. More New York than Phila, yo!

My first stop during Philly Beer Week. On cask Elysian Brewer's Reserve IPA (7% abv); DFH 75 minute IPA (7.5%); Slyfox Pale Ale (5%). Later in the weekend the following was going on cask: Green Flash Hop Head Red (Red IPA, 7%); Victory Summer Love (American Blond, 5.2%); Bear Republic Grand Am ( APA,6%); Breckingridge Lucky U (American IPA, 6.2%); and Yards Brotherly Suds (American Bitter,4.5%). Elysian kicked while I was there so I stayed for a Hop Head Red. Great staff, friendlycrowd, amazing beers and an excellent start to my 3-day beer weekend. On tap: Leipziger Gose; Ichtegem's Grand Cru; Oskar Blues G'night; Manyayunk Duet; DeDoll Dulle Teve; Allagash White; Victory Braumeister Pils; Left Hand Milk Stout; and Port Summer Pale Ale. WOW!
