This review is for the Fermenteria. I went there with some friends for a recent bottle release. The vibe was great. Everything was relaxed even though there was a bottle release happening. Plenty of space inside to grab a table after picking up our bottles. There was also plenty of lot and street parking, which is always nice for breweries near a major city like Philly. Service was slightly above average as was the food. They had about ten of their beers on draft, no guest taps. Overall, a great experience and I would definitely recommend checking them out if you are in the area.

The interior of the brew pub is quite cool with the brick. Parking is not so good because it's "on street" and that varies based on time of day and day of week. Hours are limited and only say that because I live 45-60 minutes from the brewery which equals too far to drive after having a beer or two, no fault of Tired Hands.

Food is very good. Beer is very good but beer names rank amongst the weirdest I've ever encountered. Beer selection is good and they only serve their own beer.

Definitely recommend stopping here if you are in the NW/W 'burbs of Philadelphia,

This brewery is the real deal. A friend of mine turned me onto these guys when he was wowed by their top tier Saisons. I was a little skeptical because I am not huge on belgian ales, but after perusing their website I decided it was worth the trip. I first went to their brewcafe, and it is a wonderful hole in the wall filled with character. I had a cask pumped stout conditioned on citra hops (Nope) and a grilled cheese pannini. The food and beer were both delicious and affordable. They seem to carry a greater variety of styles and experimentation here (I had Pineapple Milkshake IPA here). However the real treat has been my repeated trips to the Fermentaria. The first day I went I stumbled upon a bottle release (Astral Plane) and got to pick that up. Then my girlfriend and I went into spilt dessert and try some brews. The menu is definitely a little more pricey here but the selection is a lot bigger. Same with the beer menu. I have been able to enjoy some truly remarkable beers from there since I have gone. Hophands, Shambolic, Only Void aged on coffee and cherries, Freedom from the Known, and my favorite which was Such Passion. The service also has always been pretty great. The first two times I went we had the same woman, she remembered us, was very friendly, and also very helpful. She was quick, and knowledgeable of the many brews on tap. The third time I went I had someone else, and she was kind and apologetic due to how busy it was, but she was a little forgetful. It didn't ditract from the overall experience too much. The growler fills a bit expensive, but since I am not a local I never mind filling up to enjoy from home. If it was habitual I might not be so consistent with that. Overall the beer is definitely worth the visit alone, but at both locations you will stay for the great cuisine, location, and service. You will find that not every beer knocks it way out of the park, but you will not have anything less than really good beer. The merchandise is also great, with shirts of a great variety of colors, and three types of glassware, which I happily added to my collection. I will definitely continue to support these awesome locations!

Can't go wrong with their candied bacon. Great food, depending on which place you go there are different tap lists

Tired hands gets nothing but 5s from me because making the 30 minute trip from NJ is always worth it. Never had a bad experience here between the staff, beers, food or crowd. Atmosphere is really chill and I've taken maby of out of state friends here whom have all come to love it. Candied bacon is to die for and their spicy mustard is amazing. Great beers as well!

Few places I've been to cooler than this. Awesome atmosphere, fantastic pales and farmhouse styles, and a simple but elegant finger food menu that compliments their beers and ties the experience together. Candied bacon was out of control.

Nice laid back atmosphere, chill and helpful staff. Very small with a 7 barrel brewery setup on site
