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 !

Beer list changes very frequently...almost weekly. Beer ranges from world class to downright foul...most are pretty good. The food is basic american faire (tacos, burger, chicken sandwich) but is generally very good. Service varies greatly depending on the server. Canned beer is offered for sale during weekly "can release" events where limited quantities of canned beer are offered at an exorbitant price. Some people wait in line for hours to purchase cans. Canned beer can be a mixed bag - I recently received some infected cans in a recent purchase. I notified the brewery but the issue was never acknowledged.

Exceptional experience. This brewery has some of the best beers I have ever tasted. I may not like all the styles, but you can tell the quality is very, very good. They had a beer at the original location a few weeks ago called Earth Holy that was likely the best beer I have ever had. The most well rounded IPA ever!!

Went on a bottle release day, very organized and smoothly ran. Draft selection was good, and everyone I had I enjoyed. Food was outstanding. Friendly and fast service.

This place is a cozy, comfortable and and rustic brew pub. Lots of thick dark wood with open face brick walls, a small seating area on the first floor and a slightly more open space upstairs but still very small and intimate. This place offers great food unlike many brew pubs I have been to and the food is outstanding. The beer selection – outstanding. Tired Hands is known for its outstanding saisons and great IPA’s and in these two areas the beer doesn’t disappoint. Service was and always is good although when it gets crowded which is usually on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday order what you can and don’t expect the wait staff to come around often. There is no parking lot for the brew pub so you have to park on the street or in a municipal parking lot down the street.
