Maybe it was the Cinnabon aftertaste, or maybe I was just high from too many free cologne sprays, but I like this place. It's in the King of Prussia Mall (Plaza building, bottom floor, near the Sears), which makes it a nice stop after some shopping, but also makes it a bit of a pain to get to when it's your only destination, unless you like mall parking, mall traffic, and mall crowds.

There's a seating area with booths up front, and a large bar area in back that has high tables as well as stools at the bar.

There were eight beers on tap, with the IPA also available on cask. That's a decent sized selection, but the selection wasn't particularly varied. Except for the barlyewine, which I was surprised to see, and a "colonial" brown, there was an amber, a light lager, an even lighter lager, an irish dry stout, and an IPA. Sort of what you'd expect from a place like this. I was last there before Christmas, and some of the taps had changed. There was a basic brown ale available then. All in all, a 4 for selection.

The beers are solid but, again, nothing outstanding. The barleywine, like other beers there, was good, but the emphasis seemed to be on smooth taste (for the style) rather than presenting really interesting flavors.

Prices are good: $2 pints all day Thursday and from 4-6 on weekdays. Also, from 4-6, there's a reduced price happy hour menu. I had the $4 quesidillas from it. They were tasty (not overwhelmed by gooey cheese, like in many places) and well presented. The portions were large enough for a light meal.

Nice and fairly big portions of food but the beer selections is of course limited to the stuff they make on site and therefore may not satisfy one's cravings. It doesn't look particularly clean as an establishment but overall it's a decent place to have bite and a beer.

This Rock Bottom was close to where I attended college and my friends and I discovered it on trips to the KOP mall. This location holds a special place in my heart because we would spend time here after classes and watch the Phillies run to the 2008 World Series unfold; it was here that I witnessed Shane Victorino hit a grand slam against C.C. Sabathia in the divisional series. With all the terrible beer we were drinking at school, Rock Bottom was a bit of an oasis. Solid, cheap, craft beer and decent bar food. Good stuff.
