This place is a mixed bag. I personally think the decor and whatever else is pretty nice, even though it is very pretentious and overdone. Everything is pretty expensive--the food and the beer. However, the food is quite good, and the beer selection is quite large. People here are rightfully complaining about the beer prices, but in honesty, you donít get jacked any worse here than in Churchkey. I sat at the bar once, but yesterday, I sat at a table. The server knew nothing about beer. He switched around a bunch of our beer orders, and when I corrected them based on aroma, he was a bit indignant (trust me, I know how a rauchbier smells). The bottle list is impressive, albeit expensive, but I usually hang out with the drafts. This place is worth visiting, but there are better places out there in Philly and the world. The blood sausage with purple mashed potatoes was superb though. Pickled mushrooms were also excellent. Both of those were unfortunately kind of expensive.

Visited here a few weeks back with Amyliz4. Got there not too long after they opened. Very dimly lit place with cool and odd decorations all around. It was strange, but I really enjoyed the vibe. The service from the bartenders themselves was good, but I have to ding it because we were there until well after an hour past opening, and all the draft lines were still not ready. Iím not quite sure how that happens. Selection was nice, with plenty of (at the time) Terryís beers to choose from. Food was quite good. A bit pricey all around, but not terrible for a city establishment. A nice place; Iíd go back.

Imagine a speakeasy designed by Miss Havisham if she grew up in the depressin-era south and youíre pretty close. I visited on a weekend afternoon and w struck by how dark the place is. It took me a few minutes to adjust my eyes The furniture llooks repurposed barrels and anything else they could bring from the farm. They have a number of drafts written on what looks like old fence rails. They have a large bar to the left and a smaller cocktail bar to the right. If you sit at the cocktail, which I had to as there were no seats at the main bar, it takes a while together your beers. They had a rich and varied list of imported craft and a few things more regional in nature. The service I saw was not get. The bartender seemed not to know what beers they carried and had problems recommending a beer for someone who ked for something light. Most of the staff didnít seem haly to work there. I didnít have any food but after getting such small portions of the beer I ordered I figured Iíd be better off at the Fice Guys next door. They have a lot of great beer here but be prepared to bring a flashlight and your life savings. This place seems more about a concept then it does being a good hang. There seemed bey little thought that went into the guests comfort. Unless someone else is paying, I wonít be back.

A generous 54. Pretty handsome space, and pleasant enough to spend a couple hours (though even with the decor you get a good sense of the preciousness and self-importance that drips - bunched ceiling curtains, e.g.). And additionally, thereís something about the feel thatís confused, as if the place is not sure whether it wants to be a sepia tone pic with the waxed stache (yes, Iím looking at the dilds behind the bar) or ye olde ice cream sundae shoppe. Pretentious staff, not backed up by any evident knowledge whatsoever. I asked one generically tatted oaf what the difference between the multiple IPAs was, and for my troubles I got: "this oneís way more hoppy, bro." That would be fine without the immense attitude and painfully inattentive service. And much would be forgiven if the beers (notably not brewed on site) were more than just okay (or less than $9 for an 8-ounce pour). Menu looked okay, but we decided to take our talents elsewhere for din-din.

Nice litte selection of Terryís beers on tap. This is a higher end spot with a more ritzy crowd then a typical beer bar. The bartenders were nice enough and the people seemed very interesting and willing to hold a conversation. Solid decor around and looks to be a solid place to eat, although I did not partake.

Very good tap list of European beers, though mostly Evil Twin the night I visited as representative of Europe. Only one of their own beers was on tap. Disappointing. Food portions are incredibly small and overpriced. Slightly pretentious atmosphere. And the service was terrible. They refuse to do separate checks which leads to a big hassle (plus they dumped another groupís orders on our bill even though we never said they were with us). Bad response to customer complaint. Dumped a 20% gratuity on the bill in response to a complaint over improper pricing. That alone means I would never visit again.

I will open with the positives. Obviously, the decor is really nice, a lot of thought went into the concept and design. Nice quality beverages -- house beers are good, imports are focused and unique and the cocktails are nice.
My last visit there with my wife I had spent near $40 within 10 minutes and had barely sat down. Draft beer prices are indicated on a big chalkboard for each size pour, for example, $9 / $7 is listed for a given beer. You have to figure the "large" pour would be at least a pint, especially for the house IPA. No, large pours were about 8-10oz taking head size into account. A house freakin IPA close to $10 for half a pint, and none of this is indicated. Bartenders take forever. Youíre surrounded by trouser-wearing hipsters and edgy early 30s people, and a freakin dixieland brass trio, or something, blaring repetitive chord progressions endlessly.
I donít mind spending a lot on good beer. Iíve bought more than my share of bottles on ebay, had massively expensive drinking nights in Belgium, small tastings where $1k plus was spent on just a handful of bottles. That said, I wonít tolerate a place that blatantly rips people off and replaces all customary courtesies you expect from a restaurant/bar with aesthetics and style. Cocktails are $13+ and are 95% ice. Oh but itís fancy special ice! Fuck off. Donít bother with this place, Iíd much rather hang out at my shitty neighborhood bar with $1 Yeungling pours than shovel money into this snotty, prick establishment thatís all style and no substance.

Very cool setup...rustic wood, brick, stone...very simple decor...community tables. A bit too dim for my liking though...almost tough to read the menu even as it was so dark. Service was friendly and reasonably knowledgeable regarding beer...very knowledgeable about the food. Coffee sucked. Prices were on the high side but reflect the city. Fairly excellent beer sleection though they were out of the first two beers i ordered which were the reason i went there. Iíd go back again though.

This place it too cool. As in, uncomfortably cool. Really great selection of beers and they hold takeovers from the non-traditional brewers (Evil Twin was last night). Upscale, cool as fuck. Really fun early 20th century decor. A bit pricey. A really nice beer bar but not a place I could see myself going to all that often. Still, this place went all out and has to be considered top-notch.
