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.

I found free on-street parking a few doors down and walked in at 4:00pm sharp on a weekday. Took a seat at the end of the bar and was greeted with a beer menu by the bartender. They had eight beers on tap almost all of which were available in 4/8/16 oz. servings. I opted for 4 oz. servings of each of the following: Cyclical Paranoia (mahogany-hued saison), Manananggal (pear gose), SaisonHands (four-grain saison), HopHands (pale ale), Funny Top Hat Serenade (classical progressive saison), and Oktüberfest (sweet potato fest bier). I love that they offer small serving sizes so that you can sample several different beers. All of the beer was great, my only knock being that they were a little one-dimensional. But the quality of everything was second to none. to go along with the beer, I made my own plate consisting of DiBruno hot abbruzze sausage, excelsior cheese, and whiskey dill pickles. Again, the quality was exceptional and even came with some of the house-made bread which was delicious.

The staff was friendly, yet not overly willing to talk about the beer or food. I can understand thought due to how busy they got in a short amount of time, just would have appreciated a little more detail about their offerings. Their "cafe"-style brewery model is right up my alley and creates a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy yourself in. They have a great thing going and know it. I'm sure their success will only continue as they expand with a new production facility. My time here was something I will always remember, albiet way too short.

After hearing so much about Tired Hands, I couldn't wait to check it out now that I live in Philadelphia. So there we went, to an odd location in a kind of dead part of town in the suburb of Ardmore.

Tired Hands is a small warm place, reminds me of Earth Bread in Germantown. They had 8 beers on tap when I visited, including Single Hop Saison Cascade, Yeast and Cats, Hop Hands and Can’t Keep Up 9.

The joint is quiet, chill and off-beat, with a nice indie vibe that makes it stand out from the average brewpub. I’m sure it gets busy, but not on a Sunday afternoon when we visited.

I was drooling looking at the open kitchen behind the bar- the food menu is short but enticing, will have to come back and try it out. The paninis look particularly great, on homemade bread.

Beers are served in 3 sizes: 4/8/16 oz, and range between two and seven dollars. I wasn't wowed by any of them, considering the hype, but they sure are nice and "different".

The beer was superb, the food was delicious, and the noise level was perfect to have a conversation on a Saturday night.

Try the whiskey pickles!

Tired Hands brews some fantastic and strange beers. Every time I go, there's an almost entirely new tap list, which is awesome. I rarely have something I don't enjoy here. Food is quite good too, although their menu is rather limited. Keep up the good work TH!
