Stopped in here for the first time last week while we were in the area. I have always heard how great this place is, time to see if that is accurate. Nice sized space with a good amount of seating area. Atmosphere is all over the place. From older people to beer geeks to hardcore hipsters. The smallish bar on the left has the drafts and menu listed above it. Service was pretty good as well. Our server seemed to know her stuff and she came to check on us a few times during our short visit. Selection was great. All but two of the drafts from PA. I got a Dock Street Berliner and it was decent. Only had time to get one beer but I saw a few others I would have liked to try. No food this time but I have only heard great things so I am looking forward to that visit. Overall a place that I am sure I will stop at many times in the future.

Across the street from the Foodery so dead easy to hit both when in the area. I stopped by on a Friday evening and needless to say it was standing room only. Still managed to order a beer (Victory Kirsch Gose) within a minute of approaching the bar. I had mixed vibes here, and fair enough the busyness skewed my visit. The clientele were a bit douchey and hipster for my liking. The tap list is interesting enough and thereís also a cask option. ST seems to get a good rep as I had a few bartenders around Philly recommend this place. Iíd visit again but outside of peak times.

When I visited: Late September 2014. What I had: Stoudts Oktoberfest and Sly Fox OíReillyís Stout on tap, a few sips of Victory Dítown Gose, Spicy Bahn Mi sandwich with chips for me, Chicken Salad "LT" sandwich with chips and a glass of sauvignon blanc for my fiancť. What I liked: Casual, no frills ambience, clearly visible draft list and specials menu, excellent food at fair prices, I enjoyed my first two beers and my partner really liked her wine. What I disliked: The Gose had off aromas (cheese, plastic) and the waitress tried to argue with me when I sent it back; draft list was decent but not nearly as good as I expected; the servers started talking about us after I returned my beer and effectively ruined our experience. Would I go back? Probably not. Overall Rating: 64

Lots of local beer, fresh on tap. Canít complain about that. Definitely a philly-centric kind of place. Was fairly quiet on the Saturday night we went but thatís not a bad thing. Didnít try the food.

Very cool spot next door to Foodery II. Very eclectic menu with amazing variety: baby octopus, antelope, hangar steak, pot pie, liver mousse, etc. Food was excellent. Prices very fair. Tap list was all local stuff, although a lot of the beers were subpar: diacetyl batch of Troegs Sunshine Pils, odd Yards and PBC stuff, other weird breweries Iíve never heard of with decent to inferior beer. Nice to have local focus but the tap list needed some gutting. Service was excellent. Outdoor patio seating upstairs was awesome. Awesome ambiance.

Had lunch here during the craft beer express. Busy but we got a table fairly fast... Solid line up beers. I had a burger which was tasty and Yards love stout. Good amount of local beers available. Service was decent.. Overall: Decent place to get a bite to eat and a beer

Visited the standard tap on my last visit back home to Philadelphia. Located in Northern Liberties, it is a hop skip and a jump from I-95 and center city. Plenty of free on street parking are with in 2 or blocks. Upon entering the building, you are greeted with a small bar and tables surrounding. The next room is a dinning room with a fair amount of booths. Upstairs there is more bars and dinning rooms and a patio. All the beers on tap were locally produced in the Philadelphia metro from the likes of Flying Fish, Slyfox, Yards, Lancaster Brewing. Had two cask conditioned ales including Troegs Hop Back which was especially delisous. I never looked at the bottle selection. Service was good, bartenders and waitresses were attentive and more than capable. Beer was served in clean and correct glasswear. I did not order any food, but others in my party did. The food looked and smelled appetizing.

Iíve been to Standard Tap a couple times, usually after concerts - which doesnít make for memorable reviews, but the place is always solid. Nice standard craft selection.

I like this place and I made it a habit to go here for the fresh Firkin every Wednesday. It can get quite busy, ever at 6 on a weeknight. The food was prepared well and standard pub fare at a reasonable price. All the taps were within 80 or 100 miles, so that was nice. The beer was served in the proper glasses and the price was fair $4 to $7. If you are looking for specific belgian beers. there are other places that do that better. I think that Standard has the best focus on the local NE brews. In a city like Philly, a bar has to do something subtly different in order to not get lost in the crowd.
