Small , but nice place with average bar food, a good variety of beers on tap (Including a lot of locals.) The price is good.

This is the most underrated kitchen in Philadelphia. There’s a regular bar menu and a daily sheet of specials-they’re both spectacular and so cheap that you’ll laugh when you get the bill.

This is the closest thing in the Philadelphia area to a European pub. The actual establishment is small - small bar with a back room "restaurant" section. Parking is great and free! You are likely to encounter ANYONE in here - such a great multi-generational, multi-ethnic, multi-socioeconomic hodge-podge. And the staff is VERY down-to-earth and friendly. There are regulars, but anyone walking into this place feels at home. The food is surprisingly good as well. Beer selection isn’t vast- around 15 taps and one hand-pulled - but there is a good mix of things to fit the mixed clientele. This is simply the epitome of warm and cozy neighborhood bar and should be on everyone’s list of places to try in Philadelphia.

On my first trip to Earth Bread yesterday, the bartender recommended that I check this tavern out. So I walked 30 yards down Germantown Ave and entered McMenamin’s Tavern. First off it seemed like a popular place and the people seemed pretty fun / friendly. Nice amount of craft taps plus European staples works for me! The one bartender that helped me seemed nice and into beer. The other servers seemed a bit less focused on providing an experience to the consumer. Didn’t try the food but the guy next to me swore by the wings. I told him to try Capone’s 25 cent wing special and get back to me :) Prices seemed fair to inexpensive and I enjoyed the quick pint of Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter that I had before heading back to my hotel in Plymouth Meeting. It was especially nice stopping here after Earth Bread considering Earth Bread concentrates more on session beers while McMenamins had "bigger" craft choices.

Has the look and feel right away of a typical Irish bar, and while they have the typical Guinness, Smitchwicks, and Harp on, they go beyond that with a nice selection of micros. Honestly was not planning on stopping in here but it turns out I didn’t do my research well enough and got to Earth Bread + Brewery a couple hours before they opened, so figured I’d grab a drink here to kill time. Atmosphere was good, service for the one beer I got was quick and friendly. For the middle of the afternoon on a Wednesday the crowd was nice. Seemed very much like a locals place. Pleasantly surprised.

Smallish sports bar out in Mt. Airy. I stopped by after visiting Earth Bread + Brewery. They had a pretty nice tap selection that was well priced. Bartender knew the product well and was friendly enough. Nothing special about this place, but it’s nice enough and worth checking out if you’re on the brew tour.

Went for lunch on a monday. I was probably the only non-regular there. The waitress was nice and attentive. Certainly she knew what she was doing. My fish and chips were, while a little too salty, very tasty and spicy (for the fish)! Good selection of micros and even a couple of imports on tap. As for the ambiance, well, it’s a bar, nothing special but it was clean and the people were friendly. I’d go again in a minute.

Went for a couple hours on a Sunday night - terrific tap selection and some nice bottles. Service was super, and even got a round on the bartender. Interesting clientele and some great conversations were had. Definitely a place to hit if you’re going to go to Earth Bread & Brewery (a block away).
