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.

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

We came here on Thursday night of RBSG 2011. Got a big long table in the back and just started ordering stuff off the bottle list. Food was pretty tasty as well. Great service.

Stopped in on a Saturday night about 7pm. I think it goes without saying that it was super crowded and we waited about an hour for a table for 5. Jam packed up front at the bar so I canít even say it was a comfortable wait. Limited, but high quality selection of brews on tap. The food was good, but nothing to right home about. I probably will not be back unless Iím in the neighborhood.

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.

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.

Small neighborhood place. Went on a Saturday night and had to wait for table. even though it was packed the staff was very attentive and friendly. Beer selection was a good tap selection with Fullers London Pride on cask. Extensive bottle selection and the food was unremarkable.

Stopped here before Fistful of Mercy show. From the outside it looks unexpecting, the sign is dark and rusted. "Are you sure this is it?" said my companion. "Yes" I said, "Are you sure they are open?" as we walked in. Small cozy bar with about 10 seats. There are also a few small tables in the bar area. Towards the back is a dinning area that I did not enter. The tender was friendly and very cool. We chatted about the brews on tap and other breweries including RR as he had just been there. I was happy to see a lot of darker brews on tap. I ended up trying Great Divide Baltic Porter, Yards Love Stout and Stouterik. Each were quite good. Other taps included Walt Wit, Port Older Viscosity, Maduro Brown, Lagunitas IPA and others I canít recall. Their website is kept up to date as the taps change frequently. There was a large bottle selection behind the bar, it was nice to see that it wasnít all taken up with hard liquor. I also noticed an amazing glass selection behind the bar but most drinks went out in shakers, except my Stouterik, which was served in a tulip. This is my kind of place, quiet and full of friendly locals. All we had to eat was a cheeseburger and it was quite good. Iíll be back in Philly next week and Iím planning on stopping back in.

We visited the Taproom last year from Europe. I had had contact with them via e-mail about making a dinner reservation.
When we arrived the owner personally came to meet me and present me with an aged bottle of Rogue Ale, despite the fact he wasnít working that night. He seemed genuienly pleased that we had made the effort. It was a very kind and touching thing to do.
We had good food there and were served by a somewhat brusque but not altogether unfriendly waitress. This was actually a very positive thing as my Dutch colleagues were expecting this kind of "New York" service and were not disappointed.
The food was great, the Port Richond platter is particularly good. The beer was even better: excellent choice and more importantly, very well kept. I started with a Stone IPA and felt no need to change after - it was awesome.
Due to work commitments I didnít get out there again during the rest of my visit, but I will make up for that on my next trip in September.

The third leg of our Philly Beer Raid tour, which saw Local 44 and Resurrection Ale House prior to arriving here. Based on the tap list I could see the similarities between the three, but unlike the first two, we didnít feel welcomed here at all. My wife had been doing the driving on this tour and thus forgoing anything harder than water. That apparently didnít sit well with the bartender who seemed (and expressed so verbally) quite bothered that we (or more accurately my designated driver) were Ďtaking up bar space and drinking waterí. Aside from just feeling this was out of line and irresponsible (seriously, what good bar or bartender chastises a DD?), there were open bar seats, and it was still early in the afternoon. The place was picking up a crowd, but there was ample bar space available, and plenty of other table seating nearby. Stayed for two quick beers here but left put off due to the demeanor of the bartender. Only unhappy bartender we encountered in 5 days and about 15 different places.
