A place that beats the hype. Outstanding beers. Really distinguished base beers e.g. Hophands (probably most enjoyable American pale ale I have ever had) and their imaginative and highly flavorful variations. Every beer is superbly crafted and some of the very best looking pours you will ever see. Beers are bursting with gentleness. Incredibly delicate carbonation with full head and lacing, I mean here is where the word "craft" is truly indicative of the care and thoughtfulness of the brewer...and honored by the team that pours and explains each beer. The setting is in a crowded old world Philly suburban village, but inside you are transported to a small continental brasserie or gasthaus like setting. Vibrant. Lots of lively lots of cordial people sharing beers and sharing stories. The team never takes a break as beer is poured without stop, and awesome creative terroir food prepared non-stop. The beer is great; the food is great; the customers are great and the Tired Hands team is absolutely first class.
A small diversion off of I-476 that should not be missed.

Atmosphere: a nice little spot with a cozy and well decorated interior. Certainly a slightly hipster aspect to it, and a heavy use of everything fresh, local and green. Not the most unique of motto and set up today, but they certainly do it well and with a high standard of quality

Selection and Quality: not the longest row of taps or the widest variety of styles but they certainly brew some good beers. Their saisons are well brewed and tasty as are the IPAs. A constantly rotating of small batches is enough to keep it interesting, especially since that rotation is up near the 300 mark of beers.

Food: Not a huge menu again but remains very seasonal and tasty.

Overall: A cool little place just off the Villanova campus. Great beers and food. worthwhile to a wide variety of people from hipsters to beer nerds

Arrived right before opening on a Saturday as the line was backing up at the door.
Good knowledgeable service, great beer, Spartan menu. Their Pale Ale, HopHands, is the best PA I've had.
Very citrusy and thirst quenching. Also enjoyed the Blueberry IPA despite myself. It was surprisingly dank and bitter with a hint of blueberry.
Missed out on the Mago Tago. Did enjoy the Uyawa Pog Dipa and Shambolic. Also put down an unremarkable Panini with a side of Kim Chi.
All things considered I wish I could pop in more often, but at 2 hours away it'll be 1-2 times/year.

By far some of the best beer I have ever had. Truly unique and such an interesting twist on beer. The inside is super cool and well furnished, great staff. And it turns out the food might actually be better than the beer.

I've been to Tired Hands twice a few months apart from each visit, once downstairs, once upstairs. Both visits saw outstanding beers, outstanding food, good service, and a great atmosphere. It is not often that I reach the state where I laugh out loud at how good food and drink can be, but I've done so a few times at Tired Hands at both the beer and the food. I can't wait to visit again.
