Large airport bar, conveniently split into two halves, one with decent beer, and one with macro crap. Food is unaffordable by the wealthiest of travelers. $13 for a burger??

Stopped in on a layover. Not expecting much. Place was packed, crazy busy. I asked for a taplist and realized why. Really nice selection of mostly east coast beers. Victory, Weyerbacher, Duck-Rabbit, more. Great mix of styles, although nothing sour offered. Pedestrian bottle list, but who needs bottles? Good service, considering the crowd. Didn’t try the food. Well worth hunting down if you have time in the airport.
Update July 2017. Still rocking a huge taplist with exceptional choices for an airport. Prices suck ($9 pints), but again, its an airport. They even have three pre-set flights: IPA, Locals, and bartender choice. I am sure they are costy, but again, its an airport. I ordered a Greek Salad this time, and it was solid.
Visited the location in Concourse B during a 4 hour flight delay. About 40 taps, 20 or so which are craft. Pretty cool selection for an airport bar - nothing limited or rare of course, but selections from Dock Street, DFH, Flying Fish, Troegs, Victory, Yards. This place also has a ton of TVs tuned to sports. Menu is airport normal, service was above average, despite being quite busy.
Decent portion of craft taps with enough BMC taps to appease the airport masses. I’ve stopped in a few times on my way out of the city and have been able to find something good on. A few locals and then the more mainstream crafts, too. Dock Street has been on each time I’ve grabbed a beer, so that has been nice. Expensive, however they are in an airport.
Decent enough Bar but bloody Pricey. As far as airport bars go one of the best ive been in. Decent range, and seemed decent quality, service was prompt, but minimum pour i could get was 12oz not the 7oz mentioned else where and some beers were larger pours only. Worth a stop if your killing time.
Best airport bar I’ve ever visited. Seriously. I had Victory Storm King, Dortmunder Gold, Edmund Fitzgerald, and Brew Free or Die on tap. The food is good, and the service is awesome -- especially by airport standards. I will definitely consider routing my flights through Philly because of this bar.
Had an hour to kill before my flight boarded in Terminal D. In the heart of the united airlines gates, a decent oasis away from the knuckle head travellers. A bunch of beers in tap, man are"crafty" buy a few local stuff too including Yards and Victory. Prices are high, my hop devil was $9. Did not eat so I can’t speak to that. Service was a little slow, but chalk that up to mid morning on a sunday.
When stuck at an airport there are worse places to find yourself than a bar with dozens of local taps. Unfortunately a number weren’t available which brings down the overall score but I at least got to build a flight of four regional beers for around $10.00.
Service was what you’d expect from an airport - not exactly attentive but quick enough to not feel rushed while waiting for your flight. Food also is a bit blah especially the Philly cheesesteak. I have had better at chains well away from eastern Pennsylvania.
If you happen to be stuck in the PHL airport during a layover and want to get a few ticks this might be your best option. Otherwise I can’t imagine that you’d go out of your way to visit.
