Donít let the name fool you, this is a traditionalmold inner city bar with lots of wood an great gargoyles. Oh, and Cajun food, if you can believe that. Twenty well chosen beers with plenty of local stuff. Definitely worth a visit.

Stopped by around 10pm on 26/05/12 - memorial day weekend Saturday, it wasnít too busy and we were two of only 6 at the bar. Decent selection from the 20 or so taps, I didnít need to consult the bottle menu. Service was prompt and friendly, samples given, not busy mind as previous. Food looked great as we drooled over a burger that someone else at the bar was eating. Will definately re-visit.

Dark, easy to overlook beer bar in historic downtown Philly catty-corner to Eulogy Belgian tavern. Kyber Pass I think has a small sign out front that just says "Khyber." Inside is more of a local hangout with a long, easy to navigate bar with an adjoining room with tables. English Pub decor but extensive American craft beer list with lots of specialties showing up. Last time I was here they had a Ballast Point tap takeover with special one-offs. Typical tap list seems to have more consideration than Eulogy and is my first stop for beer bars in the historic area. A little gem worth stopping into. I havenít eaten here but Iím sure the food is an upgrade from Eulogy as well. From their website, they upload a daily screenshot of their tap list, which is pretty much badass.

Khyber is my personal favorite in Old City. It boasts a healthy beer list with a nice variety of brews; both local and long-distance. Usually a few Belgian brews on, too. They have two cask offerings and usually something you donít normally see on cask is pouring from at least on of them. The service has always been stellar when Iíve been. The interior is dark and the bar area is not that big. When busy it feels very cramped. They have a seating area for those who wish to dine, as well. I was a little weary of the place on my first visit as I thought it came off as a touch pretentious but soon I figured out that was a misguided thought and the joint is really relaxed and easy going. A great bar for great beer.

Visited for the first time June 19, 2013, in the afternoon. We were supposed to go to Triumph close by, but they were close until 4 PM, so we whent there and Iím happy we did. Itís a bit like Monks Cafe in Centrel Philly, but bigger. Very good tap list, with two on cask. Service was equally good, very friendly bartender. The best beer bar in the old part of Philly.

Visited this place fairly early on a Saturday evening, and it was decently crowded, but still with some seats available as well. Darker looking place, more dive style than classy. Bartenders were friendly and seemed to know their beer, and the selection was pretty solid as well. We enjoyed our visit.

Nice selection of crafts and regionals on the 20-odd taps and two casks, plus very good happy hour prices in this comfortable neighborhood atmosphere bar/restaurant. Somewhat varied but old-school blues and punk music selection in the background was nice at first, but later became tedious, loud and overbearing dinosaur rock. Good service at the bar and an excellent, somewhat eclectic southern and Cajun menu. The catfish poí boy, wild mushroom etoufee, fried okra, and hush puppies with molasses butter we had were all great and nicely priced for the quality.

Long bar area and equally sized second room with seating/tables ..... Nice tin ceiling with old hardwood floors appealing place .... on the good side service was great I was asked by two people other than my server if I needed another drink but on the bad side someone opened a bottle that I asked for takeout so maybe too many people involved no biggy though ... The food is New Orleans inspired and BBQ: thats where I was torn the gumbo was awesome, the BBQ pulled pork was tough, dry and more like beef jerky and I hardly ever complain about food ... sent it back .... The beer list had 22 taps nice mix of styles, lots of micros and Euro for a decent price and a bottle list with a decent mix of styles and just one rare bottle (Barrel aged Boris Hoppin Frog) ... overall Iíd come again and give it a second chance hoping that if your going to feature BBQ on your menu it better be friggin good ... the beer though was fantastic

Full of character, and full of people on a Saturday lunchtime, but still got a seat at the bar, good service, and friendly chat from the clientele. The beer choice was wide, and the onesís I tried were certainly good.
