This is another nice place to grab a good beer and some food in Old City. On the corner of 2nd and Market, the entrance into the building is easy to find. When you first walk in you notice the wood burning oven and pizza making area, and just past that there is a smallish bar that can seat about 8 people. Several tables in the back of the restuarant. Old glassware hangs from the ceiling, and there is plenty of light wood and darker colors on the walls. A lone TV sits atop the bar area, and there is also an open window into the kitchen just behind the bar.

The beer list was not not big, but did change over two visits over a two day period we stopped in. SN Celebration, Yards Brawler, Victory Moonglow, Troegs Dead Reckogning, Blue Point Lager, Sly Fox O'Reilly Stout, and a surprising keg of Goose Island BCBS was on tap Thanksgiving Day. The beers were fresh. We order a pizza which was very good.

Overall the place has more of a cozy feeling and a comfortable place to enjoy some pints.

I had never heard of this place, even though I hang out on Second Street quite a bit (Khyber Pass!). Thank you, PhillyTapFinder for pointing out the way towards Revolution House- it was there that I saw they were having a special event with Free Will Brewing featuring the amazing Ralphius, a 14% Pappy-aged Imp Stout.

So there we went on a cold Friday evening slightly before Happy Hour. The place is narrow and cozy. Notice the pizza oven as you enter, then the bar and past that the dining area. We sat at a high-top by the window across the bar and had good service from our server.

This has got to be one of the best and less-touristy bars in this fanny-pack-infested area of Philadelphia. I don't know how their regular tap list looks (they have only eight handles), but the Free Will taps were delicately insane.

Eight dollars for the better brews and six or seven for the "normal" beers like Victory Hop Devil, and half-off during Happy Hour. Nice!

We ordered some onion strings to munch on that reminded of P.J. Clarke's in New York City. Maybe next time I'll try the pizza.
