Went to Tired Hands this past Sunday at roughly 4pm. The atmosphere was fantastic with the wood interior and solid bars. We ventured to the upstairs bar and were greeted by a very knowledgeable tender. He was able to answer all of our questions and even offered some recommendations that worked out perfectly. I would love to live closer so that I may visit more often.

Heard great things about this place and decided to check it out. Exceeded all expectations. Went with my girlfriend and found a seat at the bar. Enjoyed that you could get beers in various sizes so if you didn't want to commit to a full beer you didn't have to. Tried the Hop Hands and was really impressed. Next was the UYAWA Pog IIPA which I enjoyed a lot, then Alien Church which was the chapion of the night. Got a few growlers and a glass and was on my way. Great prices and a great atmosphere. Can't wait to go back when I have more time to spend and try the food.

Tiny place. Some beers were more impressive than others. The Perfect Crystalline Structure was amazing, the SaisonHands was really good, just a little underwhelming. The food was awesome. The bartender is super nice but can be hard to flag down. Tiny place with an awesome atmosphere, very cool. She told me they're opening a production facility so increased bottling! Huzzah!!!

First time there, had a couple brews which both were cloudy for whatever reason which did not matter to me and personally think the mouthfeel gains from it. Lots of twenty somethings there and kind of electric atmosphere of things to come. The beer reminds me of really good homebrew, not commercial tasting. I think this should continue thru the expansion they are planing. Cause and effect of success. Remember, it's called MICROBREW. If you want to get rich then do the COORS thing. Hopefully not.

Love this place. Growler fills and draft pours are very inexpensive for the quality of beer you get, in my opinion. Service is always great and they have some pretty decent food items to quell the tummy rumblings while drinking. I have loved every beer I've had here, but it's unfortunate (maybe not) that it's such small quantities. Really the main tragedy for me is that I live too far away and can't make it over for every new release. Can get pretty busy on weekends and especially for bottle releases, but that's obviously expected.

I have been here more times than I can count, and it's about time I give the feedback they deserve. Tired Hands is perfect. They make amazing beer, ranging from "boring" English Bitters to American Wild Ales brewed with locally sourced fruit. All of their beers are amazing though, and one of my favorites was their English Bitter. Jean does an amazing job when he makes traditional ales. Some of the most memorable for me were Trendler's Altbier and Shep's Memory. There is no contest though when he comes out with another sessionable pale ale or IPA or saison. It's their forte. Everything in those styles really blow me away. Their bottle releases are always an event. Well organized and quick. It draws major crowds, and when they first started releasing bottles, people driving by would stop and ask why people were lined up for blocks on a Sunday morning. (Definitely not for church...but maybe an Alien Church?)

I love the atmosphere at TH. They play a wide range of music, from jazz to metal, but more often featuring bands like the Flaming Lips or Local Natives. The place is well decorated with art from Jean, and with other oddities (deer horns, local flora). The windows are covered in unique and colorful drawings from Jean as well. The tables are massive hunks of beautiful wood. The menu is on a chalkboard. The bathrooms are clean and private.

All their food is locally sourced, or made on the premises. I consider that a major plus! They offer 4 various cheeses, 4 meats, and a range of paninis than include some vegetarian options. They have the best pickles anywhere. They have candied bacon with a bourbon-maple dipping sauce. Their salads rival the candied bacon in their deliciousness....seriously. Though their food menu is incredibly limited, everything on it is done to perfection. All their bread is baked fresh daily in house.

The people that work their are super friendly and seem to be genuinely happy. They are very helpful, and if you have a question, they are well-versed on all the beers and food. The place is pretty small, so even if they are packed, the service is still pretty quick.

I am a regular there, and I will continue to be...a truly remarkable gem in the Philadelphia beer scene.

Decor is great, love the big bay window in the front. Staff was very friendly. Music was good, no top 40 bs. The quality of the beers are great, had a chance to try four different beers and all were solid beers. Selection of beers was good, just heavy on IPAs and Saisons. I also got a grilled cheese and it was tasty. Overall a very good brew pub, can't wait until next time I get to go there. Lives up to the hype!

Tired Hands is awesome! The vibe there was so chill. I was there on a Friday night with a group of six and there were no issues ordering drinks. Service was great and very friendly. The food was fantastic. We ordered a cheese and meat plate with excellent quality for from local farms. They also have paninis which looked fantastic. Very cool relaxing place. Highly recommended. Don't forget to grab a growler before you leave.
