Very stylish place, 1920ís theme, with bartenders whistling and humming along with the period tunes. Brewer Terry was there to explain the beers, as well as his futue plans in Virginia (yay!). House beers were outstanding, and the rest of the draft list was extremely creative and unique in the city, and so was the bottle list. Staff were friendly and efficient. Food was very good. My favorite place in Philly so far, and the week ainít over yet.
located across from the forrest theather. cool place with a beer bar to the left and a cocktail bar on the right, kind of a barn feel but inviting. beer selection is european including De Molen and Struise. food was good but expensive. definately worth a try. they were out of more cheeses and beer on the menu than I expected.
Nice litte selection of Terryís beers on tap. This is a higher end spot with a more ritzy crowd then a typical beer bar. The bartenders were nice enough and the people seemed very interesting and willing to hold a conversation. Solid decor around and looks to be a solid place to eat, although I did not partake.
Really chic place in Philly- retro decoration like an old speakeasy with beautiful candles and laverns everywhere. Taps are listed on wood planks. Keg rotation looks very rapid with an excellent selection ranging from their superb house beers brewed by Terry Hawsbacker from Bullfrog Brewing all the way to De Molen, Danish rarities, Stillwater, other local brews. Bottle list had Drie Fonteinen and Cantillon. We split at 750 of 3F Doesjel for $32 that was superb. Amazing geuze. Served correctly. Pours are with correct amount of head/foam. Service was quick. We were there while a live brass ensemble was playing. Great vibe, hip, cool place to just chill that so happens to have a world class tap list. They serve food that looked quite good, but we had already eaten.
Very cool ambiance with tons of candles, barrels for small tables (crate and barrel look) and an old turn of the century feel .... servers and bartenders are all dressed up and were friendly and knew their drinks .... the prices were straight robbery way overpriced ... the beer list featured a handful of their own brews and a crap load of italian, dutch, danish and scandanavian brews and it was extensive and expensive .... didnít try the food here .... a nice place to experience and find a rarity, but I wouldnít make this place my regular bar
Visted during Philly Beer Week/RBSG 2011. This place is something else. Had about 25 Mikkellers on tap when I was there. Had a charcuterie plate that was pretty tasty as well as some popcorn. This place is super "rustic." I think thatís the feel they are going for. Candle lights hanging from the highly wooded interior. Pretty over the top, including the dress of the bartenders. I almost felt like I was tripping when I was here, but maybe I was just a little too hungover.
