Surprisingly busy for a weekday afternoon, comfy atmospherics (Iíd call it Shore-style-meets-faux-Irish-Pub) and safe location with easy parking. Great bartender and good bar setups, about twenty taps ranging from local introductory beers to slightly rarer regionals, all craft beer and probably something you will enjoy. Very pleased at the sheer amount of conversations I overheard talking about product, styles, upcoming beer events, and everyone welcoming and having a good time. Best part was the food -- simple barfood pork nachos hit every part of my palate and stuffed me to the point I thought Iíd have to be rolled out through the door; worst part was the overpriced (albeit large) bottle menu ... itís really nice to see some of the Goose Island ísistersí, for example, but theyíre probably still there for a reason, and something as ubiquitous as Orval shouldnít be that much even at normal bar markup.
Overall, I think it has a chance of becoming something of a destination on this side of the river, Iíll happily return.

The Pourhouse is a craft beer focused restaurant with dark ambient lighting and a nice layout, though a bit small. Itís in a nice area, but parking is a bit crowded sometimes. The service was decent, nothing to write home about or complain about. The beer selection is solid, and I had no problem finding a beer list. The food was good and the prices were okay.
Iím not sure if Iíd hurry back here, but I would consider coming here for dinner and some beer once in a while. If you want a similar beer selection, decent food at a less packed environment I suggest Victory Lane instead.

Even though this place is pretty big and thereís an overflow bar upstairs, it was jam packed when I was there on a Saturday night at 6 PM. Servers were a bit stretched. Food was good. Draft list was just OK, and although there are a few visible bottle behind the bar, there is a huge printed bottle list, so be sure to check it out.

Terrific Eats, best Burgers and appetizers around, canít find a homemade pierogi at many bars, but this place makes a good one. Excellent bar and wait staff, always friendly and attentive, informative as well. This place can pack em in on the weekends, because many know its just that good.

This place is the best in south Jersey for beer selection and atmosphere. There are always interesting beers on tap and they have a pretty decent bottle selection. The food menu is a bit limited, but what they serve is well above average quality. If I can't make it into Philly, this is my number one spot.

Went to pourhouse for a late lunch. The place has an industrial feel, brick walls, exposed pipes, but it works. THE MUSIC IS GREAT and the service was very timely. The food is good but the selection is limited, mainly burgers. I wish i went on a wendsday for 1$ oysters... Prices were reasonable and beer specials were ok, big tap selection.. Overall it felt like eating and drinking in a Liquor Store

This is my go-to craft beer bar in the Philly area outside of Philly itself. Great selection of bottles and taps - all of which rotate constantly. The tap system is always kept clean so you donít get the off flavors that are all too common at similar places. The bartending staff is nothing short of rockstar quality. They know their beers and after just a couple of visits theyíll know your favorite styles too. Iím always greeted with news of the latest additions as soon as I sit down. The menu is narrow but classic and very tasty. Maybe the only South Jersey craft beer bar that would succeed as is in Center City Philly.

They have 20 taps that rotate rather frequently and a pretty extensive bottle list of around 150-200 beers. The service is pretty good and the food was much better than expected. This place is owned by PJ Whelihans so if you know the food there then this place is mostly the same. Slightly overpriced but it is a restaurant so thats to be expected. Worth a visit if you are in the area and want to try and find some rarer beers or good locals.
