Solid beer, really great food, decent pricing, and a really cool venue on the edge of the Schukyll River. Worth checking out. A bit of a high-class atmosphere for a brewpub, but still a fun place. Mostly yuppy college crowd.
Stopped by after many years. Place really hasnít changed much. Pretty dark and had that ídankí Tried a flight of 8... that were OK. Service not too up on beers from what I can tell. Didnít try the food but the popcorn was pretty good. Average place when I was there
this may be a brewpub by definition, but its emphasis is decidedly not on the beer. the place is flooded about every 5 years, leaving a stale mold smell in an otherwise cool ambiance.
bartenders are fairly clueless as itís more of a party bar than a beer bar. beer is frequently poured in incorrect glasses, and honestly tastes like soap.
only time iíve liked a manayunk beer has been AWAY from the brewery.
Huge space with multiple rooms and bars on the two levels. During the summer they have a large deck open that overlooks the river with outdoor bars, too. They only have their brews on tap and they are all passable but nothing exceptional. I prefer their seasonals to their regular stuff as they seam to be better. Food is tasty. They have their own sushi bar, too. Definitely gets loud and club like on the weekends which I could do without. Not your standard brewpub experience and not my favorite. But, that doesnít mean itís a bad place, just not my scene. Iíd go back if I was nearby and they had one of their better seasonal brews on.
Stopped by for dinner, wanted to sit on the deck but some rain detered that. Beers are decent, nothing spectacular but they have been improving the seasonals. Food was good. Atmosphere was a little weird for a brewpub, seemed like they were trying to be more upscale. Aaa
Manayunk Brewery is located between Main Street and the Schuykill River in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia. The bar/restuarnt is quite large with bars and dinning rooms on the lower level and the second level. It also features a large patio that over looks the river and a railroad tresstle bridge that crosses over the Schuykill. There is lots of pay parking available on main street and free street parking a few blocks east.
All of the beers on tap are their own. They had about 8 beers on tap including a DIPA, APA, wheat beer, and a few lagers. Everything I had was served in appropriate glass wear. The beer was tasty but nothing over the top. The servers were quick and attentive.
Did not try the food, prices were a bit high but nothing I would not expect in the trendy Manayunk section.
This is not the place I want to be on a Friday or Saturday night. The crowd becomes very "fratty" and I think within 2 minutes of walking into the place, I couldíve been in several fights just by making eye contact with the wrong individuals. Every other person I came across was tinkering along the line of blackout and the place smelled of vomit. Once I was finally able to make it to the bar I checked out the beer menu - seemed like some interesting selections. I chose the IPA while my buddies got the fruit lager. The IPA smelled amazing, the taste was a bit more average, while the fruity lager was a mess. I would actually consider going back to this place to sample more of their brews if I knew I didnít have to risk my life in doing so. Manayunk, in general, has always rubbed me the wrong way in this respect. Evolve already!
Large place where you can sample all 8 beers, including a variety of seasonals, while watching the activity in the attached brewery. All the beers were very solid, not a bad beer in the bunch, with a handful that were extremely tasty. Food was good, service was stellar. Brewer stopped by to offer a taste from the brightening tank and to vhat about the beers. I definitely need to retun in the summer to try the patio that faces the river.
