I’ve been slacking Earth Bread + Brewery is less than five miles from my house and months after it opening I’ve finally made it over there. Clean, bright, maybe even a bit spartan establishment with a large dining area and small lounge/bar upstairs; downstairs open kitchen and brewing area with (maybe original) bar. Warning for sports fans or plastic fantastic lovers....NO TV’s. However, good music piped through numerous speakers and plenty of reading material make up for it. Limited menu, but great oven baked flatbread and reasonable prices nonetheless. The beer selection was a mix of brewed in-house and guest beers. Germantown Avenue corridor has other options for dining and drinking all in a block or two from EB+B so you don’t have to put all your eggs in one basket. EB+B is a very welcome establishment to the ’hood.
Cute little place. service was excellent although they were not particularly busy when I was there. Had the mushroom specialty pizza and it was phenomenal. Only 4 of their own beers on tap with an equal number of guest taps. Did not do flights. The lack of selection and flight was the only real disappointment. The beer was solid. Prices decent.
First time visiting on a beautiful April weekend. Sat upstairs and enjoyed lunch. Flatbreads were varied, and delicious (tried Earth and Vietnamese) - I shouldn’t have been surprised seeing as though it is billed as a bakery, too! All staff were very friendly and accommodating. I was with my wife and 10mo. old son - they had a clean high chair and sat us next to an airy and bright window. While rating I was torn with selection. EBB only has 4 of their own brews on tap with a small selection of other breweries offerings. I was reminded of watching kitchen nightmares with Gorden Ramsey and his often cited criticism of long meandering menus. EBB definitely has a nicely curated menu. Their own brews were definitely the stars of the show. Great place to visit.

Stop #3 of my birthday beer tour. Kind of surprised at the high ratings here. The 3 or 4 beers on tap that were theirs were just not good. The atmosphere was cozy and the service was great. I am sure the food is good but I already ate. If I’m in the area I will give it another shot.
Beer Quality// very good
Beer Philosophy// ever-rotating line-up of four to six beers; broadest range of styles of any brewer in the Philadelphia area; focus on experimentation, but also will brew tradition English styles
Serving Sizes// 13oz/20oz; no flights, but you can try a taste before ordering
Growler Situation// will fill theirs or others
Food Situation// flatbreads; local, sustainable ingredients
Ambiance// spacious; two floors in a city corner row-house; open layout; no tv’s
Overall// Earth is the second beer venture from Tim of Heavyweight (NJ) fame, so you know the beers are going to be solid; Earth has cultivated a neighborhood vibe that always lives up to expectations
Food looked amazing but I ate already- was really looking forward to visit as I am big fan of Heavyweight. Didn’t disappoint. Check it out.

It’s hard to imagine that a brewpub could be this good this consistently. There are usually four house beers on tap and always three or four are outstanding. I took my students from Drexel University’s Beer Fundamentals class to visit. They were impressed and I am too.
Stopped by here once with Linh for some drinks. Really wish you could do samples or even half-pints of their stuff, as we can only get here via car - thus someone has to drive afterwards. Will def stop by again to check out their stuff.
Stopped in on a sunday afternoon...pretty quiet in there but the service was awesome and the white and black flatbread was outstanding. Beers were decent but not great but they constantly rotate so Id try more. guest drafts were mostly victory. Prices were good...id probably pay a few bucks more for that flatbread knowing how damn good it is.
