Just realized I had neglected to rate this place - quality eats and pretty good draft selections. Nothing thats "knock your socks off", but they do a good job and contribute to the Philly beer scene.

Stopped in while we were in Philadelphia. Its a big place. Nice selection of beers on tap. I didnít eat there, so I am not sure about the food. Nice knowledgeable staff. Solid beers.

Overall worth a stop. The beers are adventurous, but always a bit subpar to some other microbrew pubs. The atmosphere and servcei are above average, and the menu is well above average, with a knowledgeable staff. Try the cheese plate slection (varies) and the Grog on tap.

Quite small upstairs bar/restaurant. brewing facilities are extremely small, encased and lining the wall to the kitchen. They have like 3 7-bbl fermenters i think. lotís of bobble-head figures and sports paraphenalia. They usually have like 5 or 6 of their beers on tap, only once did they have a beer on hand pump. Their beers are mediocre to slightly above mediocre. I really admire their desire to brew unusually styles. Iíve had a saison, berliner weiss, and an alt beer there. lotís of 20/30 somethings there. Prices are pretty expensive. pints are $4.50

went there during lunch with my brother and a friend. nothing special about the place in terms of appearance and service was a bit slow. it was lunch time so that may be the reason. the beer was okay. the food was good. i had the cajun chicken sandwich which was fab and the fries were tasty. i do think the waiter mixed up the beers so my ratings of them may be a bit off.

This brewbpub is located on the second floor, so its easy to miss from the street. You walk up the stairs and immediately see an interesting collection of bobblehead dolls. To the right is the more contemporary dining area. To the left is the bar, which has a slightly weathered historic appearance. Bartender was friendly, as I ordered a sampler of the six beers on tap, and finished with a full pint of the BPA. Overall, beers are fairly solid, and I did not try the food. My only gripe is that my bill came to $18 for the six 6oz beer sampler and one pint, which is rather high. At those prices, I doubt Iíll return. If I am going to spend that kind of money, Iíll go down the street to Monkís Cafť

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.
