I've visited Manayunk Brewery several times.
It's about a 25 minutes drive for me as its located a few miles outside of downtown Philly.
The atmosphere of the outdoor seating is my favorite part of this bar. The river and the bridge in the back drop are really cool.
The place is a lot larger than one would think from the outside.
During the week it's pretty easy to get a seat where you want, but on weekends this place gets packed!!
The food is nothing spectacular but it's decent.
They have a wide variety of beers. Some are better then others. I must say that a single one doesn't stand out over another.
Overall, this is a place best visited on a warm summer night so one can take advantage of the outside seating!

Stopped in on the way to Mitchell & Ness for a lecture the other night. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the industrial look (not too cold). Impressed with the sushi bar inside. Very good beer and I will definitely return. Picked up a few 4 packs which I am eagerly waiting to try.

The wife and I decided to explore Manayunk and hit some bars and stores along the main street. The brewery was our first stop- finding street parking on a Saturday afternoon was not difficult.

A large, cavernous space with a long bar and a huge dining area, already humming with people at 4pm. Alas, the crowd was boring and the space feels corporate.

Nine taps at the bar, including the tasty Rye of the Tiger, St Alpha Belgian IPA and Monk from the Yunk Tripel. At five dollars per 12 or 16-oz glass, the prices are fine. The beers... not so much, correct but forgettable.

The food menu is as massive as the space and it's got everything. You want sushi? We got sushi. Pizza? Sure why not. And burgers, and entrees, and a kid menu and you name it. We tried the mushroom pizza and loved it, but the pricey deviled eggs were bland.

Service was mediocre, which is a shame because I spotted no less than twenty employees roaming the floor. I am in no rush to revisit Manayunk.

Nine different beers on tap. Bartender was friendly. The prices here for samples and single glasses are great. There is also a decent selection of liquor for the non beer drinkers. There is a large amount of seating and a rear patio that looks very nice for a summer day (I was there in November). Would like to return in the summer to try the food and see the fun on the patio.

Huge place, newly redone since the flood.I was there for lunch on a Tuesday... not crowded...but got the royal treatment and tour from the brewer. Very personable...lots of new equipment ...only had 4 beers on, but tasty. expansive outdoor patio selection along the river...thoroughly enjoyable
