Kraftwork is a really cool craft beer bar in the ever expanding web of gentrification in Fishtown. The bar is on a non-descript corner on Girard, with a little bench in front of a large bright street side window. Theres a cool sign in the shape of a wrench that announces the name of the bar. The interior is very cool with some steam punk influences, exposed brick wall, exposed industrial fittings and a really cool maple bar. The tables are scattered throughout and are of different sizes which is helpful for small and large parties. The floor is pretty wide so there's room for those that want to stand and mingle.

The food here was good but not great. The portions were fair, but I felt like several of the courses were tasty but I had little criticisms about seasoning or ingredients that could improve them. The veggie options were available, which is always helpful for mixed crowds.

The beers are the star here with a good mix of craft beers on 24 taps and 1 hand pump. There is a good representation from on East Coast beers as Terrapin, Flying Dog, Yards, Victory, Troegs, as well as Belgians and West Coast beers on tap. There selection is always interesting and they provide detailed description on each beer, pricing on different size pours (half pints, tulips, pints and growlers), abv, and what is coming next. There are often seasonals and limited beers that you'd have trouble finding elsewhere in the city.

This is a nice place to go before a concert at Johnny Brenda's, dancing at Kungfu Necktie, or just a night of craft beer drinking.

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.
