Been trying to get here for a while. Used todayís Birthday as an excuse to go out of my way to get here (plus their IIPA, Hoptimus Prime, is on tap!). They donít have a real sampler but will put together a flight of their beers in 6oz glasses for ~$2 each. I found their beers to be above average. Great tasting appetizers and their mussels were good too! Was there at 11:30am on a Friday so there wasnít a crowd.

Hit Nodding Head before the Yankees-Phils game. Up a rickety flight of stairs, brewpub was bigger than it appeared it was going to be from outside. Beers that I sampled were for the most part above average for a brewpub, and the bartender was very knowledgable about the beer and was very attentive. The highlight for me was the Hoptimus Prime, and the low point was the Weisse. Would recommend to anyone in Philly for a beer outing, and is very convenient since itís only a few blocks away from Monks. Did not have enough time to try the food.

Decided to check out this place after seeing ads in the paper for months. Place was pretty empty for a Saturday afternoon. Pretty nice place, ~12 seat beautiful mahogany bar. Only 4 beers on tap, APA, Scottish ale, Weiss and Oatmeal stout. I had the APA and my girlfriend drank the stout. Both seemed average brewpub offerings. Fairly dissapointing. Iíd be interested to see the kind of crowd it draws at night.
We didnít order any food, canít comment.

Made 2 stops on my visit in Philly. Bartender was very knowledgable about the beers on tap. He went out of his way for us. The food was very good. The selection they had was decent and the beers were good as well. Worth the stop.

Eh. It was fairly quiet when I was there at 1 AM on a Saturday, but what other patrons were there were a bit of an annoying college crowd. Decent beers, and if Iíd have had the stomach for food I would have tried it.

Bit of a collegiate frat crowd on a Saturday night knocking back the suds. Had five samplers of their beers (they only had five beers at the time we arrived). Price was affordable. Thereís a trophy case of old, collectible bobblehead dolls after which the bar is obviously named. It would be easier to enjoy if it were lit up as it was hard to tell if I was looking at a Ryne Sandberg or a Sammy Sosa bobblehead. Besides the heads, the atmosphere was average, Iíd say, and full of 25-year-olds. $2/sampler, but the barleywine was $3 for a sampler (but the samples were pretty big).

Good variety of beer, some good selections always on tap. None rival my favorite craft brews, or even local stuff like victory or troegs, but it is still good. the food is pretty good too, some more refined versions of pub fare. Overall a nice place, not even competing with monkís or eulogy in my mind, but definitely a good place to spend a night out.

This is a nice place to enjoy beer and food. The beer selection and food is very good. Nice relaxing atmosphere. Had no problems getting a table. The service was quite attentive and my pot of mussels (large and flavorful) were awesome. I ordered a beer sampler tray of their Grog, 700 Level, 60 Shilling, Gordoís oatmeal stout, and 3C Extreme beers and liked them all, particularly the 3C Extreme beer. I would definitely go back to this bar and will bring some friends along for the experience.

The beers are first rate, I didnít try any of the food but the aroma was appealing. Definitely check out Samsons Oyster house below the brew pub after knocking a couple back.

sort of open space during the mid-afternoon, but they have a nice wood bar. a big collection of you guessed it, bobble heads. staff had lots of Philly brotherly love, and so did the people at the bar. one guy told me a non-english speaking Chinese couple approached him with a Zagatís guide from 1995 looking for Sam Adams. that Chinese wife was yelling at the husband, "ten year old book!! ten year old book!". then it hit me, this used to be the old Sam Adams Brewpub!! I like it better as the Nodding Head, as Sam Adams didnít have much style/it didnít impress me back then. the Nodding Head brews here arenít fantastic, but they have some creative stuff. woth a visit on the tour of the city.
