A generous 54. Pretty handsome space, and pleasant enough to spend a couple hours (though even with the decor you get a good sense of the preciousness and self-importance that drips - bunched ceiling curtains, e.g.). And additionally, thereís something about the feel thatís confused, as if the place is not sure whether it wants to be a sepia tone pic with the waxed stache (yes, Iím looking at the dilds behind the bar) or ye olde ice cream sundae shoppe. Pretentious staff, not backed up by any evident knowledge whatsoever. I asked one generically tatted oaf what the difference between the multiple IPAs was, and for my troubles I got: "this oneís way more hoppy, bro." That would be fine without the immense attitude and painfully inattentive service. And much would be forgiven if the beers (notably not brewed on site) were more than just okay (or less than $9 for an 8-ounce pour). Menu looked okay, but we decided to take our talents elsewhere for din-din.

Nice litte selection of Terryís beers on tap. This is a higher end spot with a more ritzy crowd then a typical beer bar. The bartenders were nice enough and the people seemed very interesting and willing to hold a conversation. Solid decor around and looks to be a solid place to eat, although I did not partake.

Very good tap list of European beers, though mostly Evil Twin the night I visited as representative of Europe. Only one of their own beers was on tap. Disappointing. Food portions are incredibly small and overpriced. Slightly pretentious atmosphere. And the service was terrible. They refuse to do separate checks which leads to a big hassle (plus they dumped another groupís orders on our bill even though we never said they were with us). Bad response to customer complaint. Dumped a 20% gratuity on the bill in response to a complaint over improper pricing. That alone means I would never visit again.

I will open with the positives. Obviously, the decor is really nice, a lot of thought went into the concept and design. Nice quality beverages -- house beers are good, imports are focused and unique and the cocktails are nice.
My last visit there with my wife I had spent near $40 within 10 minutes and had barely sat down. Draft beer prices are indicated on a big chalkboard for each size pour, for example, $9 / $7 is listed for a given beer. You have to figure the "large" pour would be at least a pint, especially for the house IPA. No, large pours were about 8-10oz taking head size into account. A house freakin IPA close to $10 for half a pint, and none of this is indicated. Bartenders take forever. Youíre surrounded by trouser-wearing hipsters and edgy early 30s people, and a freakin dixieland brass trio, or something, blaring repetitive chord progressions endlessly.
I donít mind spending a lot on good beer. Iíve bought more than my share of bottles on ebay, had massively expensive drinking nights in Belgium, small tastings where $1k plus was spent on just a handful of bottles. That said, I wonít tolerate a place that blatantly rips people off and replaces all customary courtesies you expect from a restaurant/bar with aesthetics and style. Cocktails are $13+ and are 95% ice. Oh but itís fancy special ice! Fuck off. Donít bother with this place, Iíd much rather hang out at my shitty neighborhood bar with $1 Yeungling pours than shovel money into this snotty, prick establishment thatís all style and no substance.

Very cool setup...rustic wood, brick, stone...very simple decor...community tables. A bit too dim for my liking though...almost tough to read the menu even as it was so dark. Service was friendly and reasonably knowledgeable regarding beer...very knowledgeable about the food. Coffee sucked. Prices were on the high side but reflect the city. Fairly excellent beer sleection though they were out of the first two beers i ordered which were the reason i went there. Iíd go back again though.

This place it too cool. As in, uncomfortably cool. Really great selection of beers and they hold takeovers from the non-traditional brewers (Evil Twin was last night). Upscale, cool as fuck. Really fun early 20th century decor. A bit pricey. A really nice beer bar but not a place I could see myself going to all that often. Still, this place went all out and has to be considered top-notch.

located across from the forrest theather. cool place with a beer bar to the left and a cocktail bar on the right, kind of a barn feel but inviting. beer selection is european including De Molen and Struise. food was good but expensive. definately worth a try. they were out of more cheeses and beer on the menu than I expected.

Really chic place in Philly- retro decoration like an old speakeasy with beautiful candles and laverns everywhere. Taps are listed on wood planks. Keg rotation looks very rapid with an excellent selection ranging from their superb house beers brewed by Terry Hawsbacker from Bullfrog Brewing all the way to De Molen, Danish rarities, Stillwater, other local brews. Bottle list had Drie Fonteinen and Cantillon. We split at 750 of 3F Doesjel for $32 that was superb. Amazing geuze. Served correctly. Pours are with correct amount of head/foam. Service was quick. We were there while a live brass ensemble was playing. Great vibe, hip, cool place to just chill that so happens to have a world class tap list. They serve food that looked quite good, but we had already eaten.
