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!
