Interesting, cramped, two story dive bar slash brewpub smack dab in the middle of downtown Philly. Service was mediocre to annoyingly slow, inattentive. Pretty sure they only had their house beers on tap, which looked interesting. However, most of them were not very good: diacetyl laden, soapy, astringent. Just not well made. They have food, but we did not eat here. Mostly burgers and bar food. Strange place with a quirky vibe. I would consider going back, but there are just too many other top notch beer bars in Philly.

The bar is not polished, not modern, but very comfortable and corner bar feeling. Friendly barkeepers willing to explain the beers. The brewery is visible behind glass panes. They had six of their beers on when I was there along with a 2010 RR Temptation tap. Beers were good and of a fairly wide variety. I didnít eat so canít comment there. Real mellow atmosphere. Casual and comfortable. Very nice.

Interesting and eccentric brewpub in Center City, Philly. The big brewkettles are behind a glass wall right near the bar, so you can keep an eye on the beer being made as you drink. There are showcases full of little dolls wearing all sorts of outfits - guess they must be nodding head dolls. An attractive and mostly wooden interior, with a traditional look to it. I like the vibe here quite a bit. I didnít try the food on this visit, but the beers were good - there were around 6-8 taps of fresh brew, and you can buy inexpensive small glasses if you like. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable about a number of subjects - good qualities in a bartender. So far I have only been there during the day, when the crowd was sparse and low-key, but I would like to visit again.

Large place, pretty empty on a Wednesday at lunchtime. Beers were mostly OK, service was good, and burgers were delicious. Worth a stop.

Great pub fare with a very good selection of their own brews. None of them are bad, so long as you are familiar with the style. Prices are on par with the city. It can get crowded later, but it is a great lunch spot.

An odd, hit or miss sort of place. Selection is usually good if they have their seven taps filled, but not always the case, and some of their options can fall on the boring and overly sweet side. On the other hand, they put together some pretty good IPAís and some unusual styles too, so again, hit or miss. I call the place odd because of the bar set up where youíre at once in an open area with space behind you and at the same time sort of secluded and facing directly away from everything going on in the bar, and Iíve felt ever so slightly uncomfortable about that the two times Iíve been. Not as though I felt I was in danger or anything, things just seemed a bit off. The last time I went the bartender was very into beer, which is always nice to see. Prices felt slightly high for the beer being served, but I guess thatís the nature of being in a city such as Philly. A place Iíd certainly return to from time to time, but always would make sure they had something on that Iíd be likely to enjoy.

Only came here to do some ticking on two different occasions. Beers were pretty good. Cool that they make a berliner weisse. I would be thrilled if this place was in Carrboro or Chapel Hill. In Philly, it was just okay.

So this place has 3 things they brew on tap, and nothing else (draft or bottle). The three things are all lame (I swear the one they call an amber ale is a stout, also).
Service is friendly, decor is pleasant, if tattered. Food is ok.
Not bad, but nothing special.

Not my favorite place in the world. The place is called the nodding head because theyíre obsessed with bobble head dolls there. Ok! They only had three things on tap which was a dissapointment. The Berliner Weisse which everyone raves about didnít knock my socks off. I thought 6 bucks for a 3 beer flight was a tad on the high side, especially since nothing they had was over 5%. The place is loud and dark and dingy, but none of those in charming ways. The bar was really small and felt out of place in the room. Not a place Iím going to be rushing back to in the future.

Walked up the narrow steps to the second floor and enjoyed the atmosphere .... Really nice looking old bar kind of an dark older feel to everything in there ... friendly waitress who knew her beers and was prompt .... They had 8 beers on tap I tried half of them and enjoyed some of the staple brews and some others not so much .... the food was good had a smoked turkey wrap and the fries not too bad try them with the bourbon jalapeno mustard .... paid 8.50 for parking a few blocks away .... all in all Iíd come back to try some brews if passing by, but wasnít blown away with any of their brews
