Best Brisket in Philadelphia, and Mushroom Ragu as well. This place is about the food and the bar provided a solid base. Russian River Damnation was on tap when I went and I had a super fresh lager that night as well. Reviewed seperately. It can get busy I was told due to a food network tv show that filmed an episode here, but the folks working here were genuine and really nice. I wish I went here more.

Easily one of my favorite bars in Philly. Off the beaten path in Fishtown/Kensington. Always amazing beer on tap and cask. Food is awesome the spaghetti and lentil meatball sandwich is one of my favorites (when in rotation). Beer garden in the summer is also fantastic. Just wish it was in my neighborhood.

I love this place. It has been around for a while, I canít believe it isnít on here. This place is so good, that I have taken the duty upon myself to actually rate a place. It is a hidden gem in a residential part of what I think is either Old Kensington, or Fishtown. Or just Port Fishington. Either way, it has a great Pubby feel to it, sometimes yuppyish. But what makes this place good regardless is the beer list. Always changing, always good and a very agreeable prices. Brendon knows whatís up. Great food, also at a great price. I think this place is probably what Iím going to miss the most when I leave Philadelphia. If you are visiting the city and feeling adventerous, want something way off the beaten path. Please do yourself a favor and go here.

Fairly small bar without much room to stand around. Our bartender was awesome that day. Didnt catch his name but he had long hair. Was very quick, and seemed to be very knowledgeable without coming off as a contrite douche like a lot of craft beer tenders. Tap selection is not the biggest, but had quality brews in various styles, and they had tapped Pliny that day. Food is uh-maze-ing. The fried pickles are the best on earth. Didnt eat anything else in the bar, but the hot dog truck outside served up some gourmet hot dogs and fried pickles as well. I think there were 7 or 8 canned beer options out there. The new beer garden seemed like a nice place to hang out, though it was raining when I went. Prices are pretty solid. I think it was only $6 each for Pliny the Elder and Firestone Walker Reserve. Awesome place, but I have to unfortunately dock it a few points for location. Itís a pain in the ass to get to, frankly. The area around the bar is nice, but go a few blocks in either direction and youíll be in some very shady areas. I live 18 miles away in the burbs, and it took close to an hour to get there.

Stopped into Memphis Taproom for brunch for the first time last weekend. A little smaller than I was expecting it to be but no big deal. Vibe was pretty good. Lots of people sitting around having breakfast and enjoying themselves. I really wanted to check out the beer garden but it wasnít open yet, I will check it out next time for sure.
Once we were seated in the back dining room we promptly ordered some breakfast and a few beers. I got the Red Rooster, it is essentially the typical breakfast stepped up a notch, and it was awesome. I had two beers while I was there, a Ballast Point Bourbon Barrel Sea Monster on cask and a Round Guys Berliner Weiss. The Ballast point was awesome, the round guys....not so much. I took a look at the bottle list and it was pretty impressive, also pretty expensive. Service was really good. Our server came to check on us multiple times throughout the meal, offering refills and getting us new beers. She even offered to replace my beer when it wasnít up to par but I decided to suffer through it.
Overall a really awesome bar that I will definitely return to in the future.

I liked this place a lot. We were visting from chicago, and they had Half Acre (a local chicago phenom) on draft. Apparently Philly is the only other city where it is available. because the owner is originally from here. They donít have that many taps, but they are all very carefully selected. The second night we were there, there was a food truck in the beer garden. The location is a little out of the fray and lots of locals hang out here. I will definitely be back here multiple times every time Iím in Philly.

Great spot to purchase lambics, has a nice selection of beers on tap and in bottles. The manager seemed a hint rude and a touch pedantic. Small spot, food looked good but did not try. Wasnít too crowded.

Went on a sat night around 7pm the wait was 30-45 mins for a table ... looks like a neighborhood corner bar front room is rectangular with a long bar back room is equal in size but is filled with all of the tables for dinner service .... small but great taplist with a mix of local, micro and european with a couple of aged rarities .... bartenders were awesome and prompt for it being so crowded ... the bottle list of 200+ beers had a nice mix of styles and vintages and you get 20% off for takeout brews (scored a Thomas Hardy 08 ale) .... the food well there is a small warning that they fry everything in 100% peanut oil so beware if your allergic (Iím not thank God) the fried pickles, cheese plate and chicken fried chicken were excellent and everyone else in my party loved their food too .... brews were like 5-6 bucks and food ranges from 8 bucks to 16-19 for entrees .... overall Iíd definitely come back here again and the neighborhood is mostly irish and I had no problems at all

Nice Ambiance. Very good service. Only 8 taps with 2 additional pumps, but the choices are usually excellent to partially make up for this, and the bottle list is fantastic. Great food but low on selection. Sometimes can be a bit pricey, but not bad for the city. Iíve done takeout bottles.

Went there for dinner on a Friday night so of course it was packed. We offered to sit outside but you can only order food from the hotdog truck when in the Beer Garden. That is not a put down on the joint but we wanted dinner so opted to wait about 20 minutes for a table in the fairly small dining room. Bartender was a good guy and nice to my girl even though she kept trying to order cocktails they donít have the ingredients for (they are a beer bar so the cocktail list isnít extensive). The fish and chips was outstanding, as were the fried pickles. The beer selection was very nice and I had a Blind Pig and a cask Seven Giraffes. The vintage bottle list was fairly extensive with a lot of nice offerings. I will definitely go back and check out the beer garden hot dog truck.
