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!

I went into my visit here with expectations that this would be a very good place to have a beer. Entering around 8:00 pm on a Saturday, no surprise that the restaurant/bar had a lively crowd. I was able to secure a stool at the bar, and was soon greeted by a bartender. After looking over the offerings, I asked for a taste of a beer and the response was : "we only have a small amount left, so I can`t pour you a taste, but it is good".
So, I ordered the beer and it was pretty good. It was a beer out of Cali, nothing very limited by any means. Some of the tap offerings were from Pizza Port, Ballast Point, local brewers, etc. I believe that they also have bottles, but do not recall those selections. Food here looked pretty good, but seemed a bit expensive. And the odd thing was that with these prices and a bit of attitude, the staff was very much dressed down. While a lot of the diners/drinkers were dressed kind of nice...it didn`t really mesh. All in all, it was ok, but I was hoping for better from the other reviews here.

Beginning with the décor - a wood bar, comfortable chairs, and vintage beer paraphernalia on the walls, it is very inviting. The staff is very friendly, and knows their beer and food menu well. It is a very cozy bar, a bit small and can get loud if you stop by before 9pm. The tap selection is great, about twelve beers, with a comprehensive but pricey bottle list as well.

The food is tasty, but I am disappointed that the fried chicken is off the menu for now. It had a touch of honey drizzle and a side of watermelon salad. Definitely check it out when it comes back. Everything is a decent portion, and the appetizers are good for sharing. The burger is a delicious, and so are the pasta dishes for entrees.

Overall, I would say that the food here is definitely more refined than at other bars, with a great rotating beer selection. Oh, and they always have the Phillies on the big screen tv.
