Went for the brewery tour on Saturday and hung around to sample some beers and food. The tour was given by the restaurant manager which was a little bit of a disappointment but he actually knew quite a bit and was able to answer most questions. The equipment is beautiful...state of the art German stainless steel tanks and fermenters. They recently upgraded their brewery from 25 Barrel to 50 Barrel system (a $2.5 million project!).

The restaurant/bar is pretty much set within a large warehouse which is set around the brewery, so the atmosphere isn't your typical cozy close-knit brewpub feel. Nevertheless it is very open and roomy. The bar is L-shaped and faces the fermentation tanks which can be seen through the windows. There is a pretty large sized dining hall >20 tables. The food was pretty good and the brick oven pizza is probably what they sell most of...after beer of course.

Now to the important part. The beer list includes all their flagship beers (Hop Devil, Prima Pils, Lager, Golden Monkey) and many of their seasonals which include those that are not bottled. See their homepage for the most up to date listing. Drafts come in small (14 oz) or large (22 oz). I believe they offer a sampler too but I did not ask. Most recently I tried the cask-conditioned Hop Devil which is about as good as it gets, St. Boisterous Hellerbock and the D-Town Brown.

Growlers are available to to fill ($7-10) depending on which brew. Empty growlers are sold there for $11 (a nice ceramic German one). You can obviously bring your own too.

Nice place to hit if your in the Philly area. You need a car to get there though. I'll be back for sure.
