One of my favorite brewpubs. Draft list changes almost entirely weekly. Food is nice, can’t miss the candied bacon. Worth a trip if you are anywhere near Philly, just watch out for Monday when they are closed.

Eclectic, interesting brewpub in a suburb of Philly...small but lots of character. It can be difficult to get a bar seat as they focus what space they have on the tables...which makes some sense given the high caliber of their food. That food includes a number of artisan sandwiches on house made artisan breads along with some nice sides and soups. The beers here are the true stars. Many are unusual versions of beers you know, some are beers that although perhaps familiar to you...may be not so in the manner they’ve created them...and then a few are just higher refined versions of an otherwise popular beer style. I give them credit for being both experimental "and" successful with these efforts. I would classify Tired Hands as a destination craftbeer locale worth going out of your way for. You may just want to consider going at a less crowded time.

Great place! Solid set of beer - during my visit they tended heavily along the saison and pale ale lines. Great service and a cool neighborhood place. Great news to hear they are expanding with a larger brewing plant. Prices are cheap too. They offer 4 oz pours one at a time to get through the list.

This place is without question one of the best brewpubs in America. At first glance, Tired Hands is frankly pretty unimpressive looking. It’s located in an afterthought of a building in a suburb of Philly. The brewpub’s spread over 2 floors, with most of the small space dedicated to table service. The decor’s functional and not very interesting. However, the beers they’re producing here more than make up for the less than ideal venue. Tired Hands’ beers are delicate, nuanced, and incredibly tasty. Each of the 8 beers on tap were far better than average, especially the saisons and pale hoppy offerings. Prices were incredibly reasonable given the quality of the beer. The service was faultless. My barman was clearly very knowledgeable, and did a great job of anticipating my needs as a customer. I would’ve been all too happy to spend an entire day here. Overall, a world class experience.

Beer Quality// high
Beer Philosophy// two house beers; six rotating taps; creative recipes; focused on saisons, IPAs, wild beer; most beers brewed only once
Serving Sizes// no flights; 4oz, 8oz, 16oz
Growler Situation// 32oz and 64oz (will fill only theirs)
Food Situation// paninis; meats & cheeses; pickles; house made bread and butter
Ambiance// rustic industrial; metal is frequently on the stereo
Overall// a must visit destination worth a detour; while not every beer is a winner, but the beer is frequently exceptional

Cool small building in a nice neighborhood. Very informative and helpful staff. The selection was limited, with many of the available taps sharing the same style, limited variety. The food, though very good, was a bit pricey for very small portions. The beer was reasonably priced with multiple pour sizes. A little over hyped but still worth a visit.

What’s left to say about this place? It’s a very cool space, if a small one, though I was able to find plenty of room on a lazy Sunday (parking, however, required a little more effort). Immediately apparent is the eclecticism, dominated principally by a weird hipster vibe, but on the whole pretty relaxed. It’s clear they understand artistic expression, understand whimsy, and really care that their product is experienced on their (high-quality) terms – not Soup Nazi levels of tyranny, but evident joy in the specificity of regulation. This is a rare place where experimentation and devotion combine; be prepared, no samplers or flights, and the 4oz servings are only served one at a time (and cost $2.50-$3 each). The glass growlers were $5.30 each and fills generally around $10-11. Food very good (portions are small, locally sourced, foodie’s attention to detail), beer better. Friendly and engaging people, in general, and service was very good, but the whole experience can be expensive AF, as the saying goes these days. I’ll be back!

Excellent brewpub. The epitome of craft! Staff was very friendly and know the beer and food. Bartenders are ready to explain anything about the process as well. HopHands is just awesome. Place can get packed on the weekends. L:poking forward to their expansion.

The positives: The bread is good and the physical building is pleasant. I like the windows that open up in the front portion of the downstairs on a nice day which is very inviting and the industrial chic look of the place with exposed brick and stone, etc. The fact that they offer small pours and a host of pour sizes is a great idea. Some of the beers are nicely made but nowhere near the hype that they attract. The negatives: Not fair to resort to the hipster tag but it is appropriate here. From the owner, to the staff, to the fanboys and girls who slobber all over this place. Make sure you wear a wool hat even if it is 100 degrees, converse, and some dipshit t-shirt if you want to fit in. The food is interesting but HIGHLY priced given what you get. Don’t plan on dinner here. The beers are spotty outside of their sweet spot of saisons and IPA’s. Their dark beers have been generally disappointing and the last couple of berliners have been drain pours. The growler policy is flat out ridiculous regardless of the BS that they tell you. All in all, you have to go there but there are TONS of place better. But the love for this place runs strong through their fanboys and fangirls.

Great place! Really chill. Food is outstanding! Homemade bread and pickles, and the candied bacon are a must try! Great selection of beers and they are phenomenal. A definite must visit if your in the area or in need of a road trip!
