Situated right on the corner and almost hard to miss, but definitely worth finding. Stopped here as the first leg of our own little Philly Beer Raid tour, going to Resurrection Ale House and then Memphis Taproom next. Laid back local feel, large open spaces, but I could easily envision this place being packed late on a weekend, given the young hip feel to both the place, and the neighborhood in which it is located. Cool menus with old patent diagrams, a different one on the back of each. Brings to mind the old farm equipment on the labels of a lot of Russian Rivers beers. Very cool. Nice food selection, with a healthy amount of vegetarian options including a falafel sandwich which I had to pass up given the intent to hit two more places after, hopefully with food at each. Did get the white bean dip, which was rather tasty and seasoned very well. Love that the bottle list here is just one. Ballsy. Another great place Iíd love to have as my local bar.

Nice pub near UPenn campus. Nice tap selection with two casks available. Good service, though I didnít try the food. Not a place you might go out of your way for, butt if youíre in the area, itís a solid place to have some nice stuff.

Nice clean bar in west philly near upenn, bar area was pretty long plenty of seating with some nice tvís and the seating area behind was table service and an equally sized area to the bar ... server was knowledgable and prompt ... stopped in for brunch they had a nice mix of different egg sandwich/egg plates ... regular menu looked good as well (had a chorizo and egg sandwich with jalapeno and avocado) which was tasty .... the taps were a nice mix of local micro, pliny the elder and blind pig, and some rarities from belgium .... the value was typical of most city micro bars ..... the bottle shop next door has cooler doors dedicated to local micro, us micro, belgian, mikkeller and german/british nice mix ... the "premium" non-cold section upstairs had a nice mix of rarities and vintage brews with some new releases. The prices up there were pretty typical but high .... definitely a place to stop by and enjoy, I wish I lived closer!

Pretty nice draft selection, awesome service, and a nice, affordable food selection that is very vegetarian/vegan friendly! A little bright for my taste in bars but service is fabulous and food/beer is good. Dig it.

Cool beer bar in West Philly, good food, and a good mellow vibe. 1 bottle always on, is orval, canít complain about that. 20 something above average taps and 2 casks. I have to say I liked this place.

Comfy little place near Penn University with a small, but well chosen, selection, of drafts - and Orval on bottle. Decebt food and excellent service make for something off the beaten path.

Like all of Brendan and Leigh bars the beer selection is top notch. Since it is close to UPenn/Drexel in can get a younger crowd. Solid food. Really good bottle shop attached as well.

I have finally been to the place enough times to feel I can get a handle on reviewing it. My first time was not great and I wasnít sure i would ever come back. The place was new and seemed confused as to what kind of place it was trying to be - restuarant, neighborhood bar, trendy nightspot, whatever. It wasnít any of these. Now that I have been back a few times, I have come to enjoy this place. The bar area isnít large but has a very warm feel to it. All that wood, the darkness, etc. overcome even the multiple large TVís to tend it toward that cozy neighborhood feel. Nearly twenty taps and two hand-pumps are divided up into a great range of options, so beer selection is this placeís strong point. The bartenders are very attentive. The "restaurant" half, on the other hand, is cramped, noisey and uncomfortable. The food is mixed. Try the hushpuppies, fritters or any of the breakfast "sandwiches." The burgers, fish and chips, wings and other barfood were meso-meso. There are nice set of vegetarian options. The only complaints I have are that they constantly seem to run out of glassware and, when they are busy, they want to hustle you out of the "dining" area. They basically kick you out, if you are finished eating, even if you are still ordering beers, etc. All-in-all though, this is a great addition to West Philadelphia and...especially earned points by offering me a shot at RRís Younger and Registration Ale :)

Went here for the Philly Beer Week Russian River event. A nice place, even when packed, we still got a table for lunch. Great tap selection, and rotates. They also have a hand pump, and I had Fullers Chiswick Bitter. Nice atmosphere, good beer, good food. Check it out if you can.
