Located right along the "Main Line", very close to Villanova University.

It is a bit crazy to me that Tired Hands is not too far ahead of 1 year in business. Already, they have accomplished much and certainly captured the attention of not only Philly area craft beer drinkers, but the Northeast and in some cases, the rest of the country.

Upon visiting them a couple times, I would say this is merited. The building is very nice, both the outside and inside, are very much welcoming. Inside, there is a good sized bar, as well as a handful of tables, and some more tables on second floor as well. The beer is quite good, from FarmHands to Nigel to Only Void, they do a fantastic job with the different styles they put out. And it served by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Their food, as a plus, is locally sourced and tasty !

Great staff, creative and delicious food. Good Vide between staff and patrons. Beer selection was lacking coming from a brewery that has 200+ beers active in this site... Mainly IPAs, a pale ale, a Gose and a couple saisons on. Hoppier beers were a mess more or less, was not inspired by what was on. Too bad, had fond memories of beers I tasted in the past.

I've been going to Tired Hands regularly since they opened. Love the beer menu staples. Appreciate the creative recipes, freshness and use of local ingredients in their brews. You'll always be surprised with their recipes. Could do without the pretensions, absurd house rules and those darned hipsters. Table service tends to take a while too. Nothing like the rural vibe you get from the luminaries in Vermont (which I prefer) but I am truly thankful Jean chose Ardmore to set up shop since it's my back yard. IMO, it's some of the better brew on the east coast but still behind Hill Farmstead, Alchemist, Maine, Prairie (not really "east"), Oxbow, etc. They have a good chance of receiving better scores when they open the new facility around the corner from their current spot, if they bottle more, age more, expand the menu and mature a bit more.

Small little place, but worth the trip there for sure. Not a big selection of beers (possibly due to the time of year) nor food, but what they do have is very good. Went on a Saturday right when they opened & by 1 the place was completely filled & seats were at a premium.

Will definitely go back.

One of my favorite places to stop on my way down or up 476. Just nearby Nova, this place is tucked away in quiet Ardmore. Love the house-made bread, probably some of the dankest around. Candied bacon you say? Yup, they have that too, along with a nice offering of locally sourced charcuterie and fromage. Only 8 draft lines, but they never disappoint. If you ever find yourself in the area, do yourself a favor and stop by.

Tired Hands beers are ridiculously delicious. Their fresh Pale Ales on draft taste like they are made out of sunbeams crafted by goddesses. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is wonderful, feels more like a quirky psychedelic coffee shop than a brew house. Bonus, the grilled cheese here is off the charts.
