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.

I have a 22 year love affair with the Khyber Pass. I drank my first Yuengling Porter and Sierra Nevada while sitting at its beautifully worn bar. Iíve seen more bands play there than I can remember. The Khyber was my spot to bring a date drink at the bar or see a show. The stage, sweat, smoke and live bands are long gone. The old jukebox and eclectic beer selectiion remain. The current Khyber Pass Pub is a beer bar that has a dining room. Staff is attentive, taps are plenty and you can still get a bottle of PBR like the old days. In my personal beer and music history the Mighty Khyber while always rank high with me.

Bacon Popcorn!!!!!! A food menu that tries something new and does it well. A great taste but not for everyone, especially if you donít like pork. On the stereo was a constant 60ís garage soundtrack, it totally fit. The beers are great and everything from Dog Fish Head to Victory to Lagunitas and Lost Coast. on tap with an ever changing fresh sheet. Half empty or at capacity, the srevice didnít change for me on my few visits here. Itís worth it.

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

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 such an amazing place to go. The food specializes in barbeque for me, and they have tons of vegan foods for my fiancee as well. The beer list is awesome and gives great descriptions, too. The jukebox there is full of 70s music likie the Stooges, Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, etc.

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.
