God I hate writing reviews...
I stopped at Kraftwork on Monday when "BeerAdvocate Preemptively 'did' Philly." The taproom was absolutely excellent. The interior was gorgeous. Polished cuts of wood were used to make barstools and tables around the outer walls. Nothing looked cheap, boring, or inattentive. Windows allowed for outside light to shine in, keeping the mood vibrant and clean instead of dark and dead like some places. The best attraction was the view of Girard Avenue.
That said, the food was outstanding and priced well. Serving sizes were perfect. The taps were full exhibiting at least fifteen beers, all of which were displayed on a list accompanied by a full description showing the brewer, beer name, style, ABV%, and serving size. There was even a list of what was on deck.
That wait staff and bartenders were kind, caring, and didn't bother you while you were eating.
Overall, an excellent time. I will go back, and would recommend Kraftwork to anyone.

Having slaked a thirst at Yard's Brewing (See Reveiw), I strolled up to this Fishtown favorite. Situated on the corner of Girard and Montgomery - and accessed by a trolley car (No. 15) - Kraftwork is a small venue with a rather industrial decor of brick and unfinished plasterwork; it is a single room dominated by a circular bar with a scattering of picnic tables along the walls.

Kraftwork offers 25 well selected taps, which cover all your basic styles; I enjoyed Yard's Brawler, a mild; Racer 5 Cask and a savory FBS. The beer menu provided glass type, something I thought unique. Great service that passed the water test and an intriguing food menu boasting a Breakfast Cubano (pork belly atop toast with fried eggs).

A great stop in Philadelphia's Fishtown and in proximity to several other great places.
