Very stylish place, 1920ís theme, with bartenders whistling and humming along with the period tunes. Brewer Terry was there to explain the beers, as well as his futue plans in Virginia (yay!). House beers were outstanding, and the rest of the draft list was extremely creative and unique in the city, and so was the bottle list. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food was very good. My favorite place in Philly so far, and the week ainít over yet.

Very cool ambiance with tons of candles, barrels for small tables (crate and barrel look) and an old turn of the century feel .... servers and bartenders are all dressed up and were friendly and knew their drinks .... the prices were straight robbery way overpriced ... the beer list featured a handful of their own brews and a crap load of italian, dutch, danish and scandanavian brews and it was extensive and expensive .... didnít try the food here .... a nice place to experience and find a rarity, but I wouldnít make this place my regular bar

Wow, what a cool place. Very old-timey feel to it. Beer bar on one side and cocktail bar on the other. Their house-made beers are all good, and there were a bunch of interesting guest beers as well. Iíll definitely be going back next time Iím in Philly.

If it wasnít for the Prohibition band blaring through 1am on a Friday, this place would be the shit. Open faced small cocktail bar leads to structured seating, lots of corners everywhere, then the beer bar on the other side. All of it feels like Hopperís New York Movie. Have been here twice now, both times leaving with a mixed reaction. Bartenders take forever, a shit-ton of hipsters are present, (thankfully theyíre quiet), over-done Prohibition theatrics, but then they have fresh Tipopils and Cristoffel on tap, plus a hoard of other imports that you will find only here, plus Terryís sour stuff will likely be the best local stuff in the city once itís up and running, plus they have bowls of malt at the bar that you can munch on whenever. Prices are definitely an issue, the cocktails decent (but wtf do I know about those). Iíll have to try the food next time, definitely will be back given the chill atmosphere and great beers despite the hipsterish scene, prices, and that stupid band.

Stopped in here during Philly Beer Week while in town for RBSG 2011. Very cool atmosphere. Love the decor and the old time feel for everything. Lots of interesting stuff hanging on the wall and the barrels for tables in the front plus the old piano and stuff is just great. Tap list while we were there was pretty solid, since they were doing a Mikkeller event. Prices were reasonable, but Iím basing this on a whole lot of going to NYC bars, so your mileage may vary. Werenít here super long, but I plan on stopping back next time Iím in Philly.

fantastic ambiance, but a bit of pretense. service is trying to be very upscale, but comes off slightly ironic in an irritating way.
Selection is mostly harder to find imports. high end beers, definitely, but none of the great local/domestic producers we have here. Maybe thatís their concept, and I get it, but itís not the "perfect" mix of rare and less-rare-but-still-amazing-and-loved, so no 15 rating for selection.
Prices areínt too far of a deviation in either direction from every other place in the area.
Worth checking out. You will probably find a beer there that you hjavenít had before.
