Situated near Market St. in the heart of Philadelphia. As a Pole, I was suprised to see Polish flag above the entrance. Turns out the owner is half Polish, half Irish. No Polish beers on taps though. Maybe they should try to import some Polish craft beers. The craft-beer scene in Poland is blooming recently. We made some fantastic beers here last year. The interior is cosy but small. Bartender helpful. Great choice of american craft beers. Pity I couldnt stay longer. Tried some Troegs and Half Acre beers. Both great. Freiendly atmosphere, not too crowded. Great deal for happy hours! Will be back when in Philly again.
So this is another Irish bar, kind of. Admittedly I enjoyed it quite a bit. Itís dark and dingy but itís in a nice looking building, itís across the street from another cool looking building (National Mechanics), and at the time they were doing a beer event for Beer Week with Fegleyís Brew Works. They had the brewers present and half a dozen of their beers on tap. I of course took the opportunity to try a glass of the Always Sunny Pale Ale and to ask the bartender where Paddyís is. Apparently itís a real place. Actually itís two places. The one that they film at is also a local place but the real Paddyís is a different bar in Philly. Sadly most of the Fegleyís beers werenít all that great but it was fun trying a number of them (the bartender provided some free samples). This is not the most well known beer geek hangout but I could see making a regular stop in here for a tick of something on the pub crawl around town.
Great happy hour specials and a nice tiny Philly-style pub atmosphere. Lots of local stuff was on when I was here, and good happy hour specials. I love that cool places like this seem to be the norm in Philly.
Dive bar in Olde City, the owner put his money into the 40 tap system instead of fixing up the Jaeger themed bar that was previously there (and it shows) .... Great beer selection (although 8 of the 40 tap heads were down). The beer was fresh and tasty with a great selection of styles from local micro and west coast micros .... bartender was friendly and they had some college football on a few TVís they have .... they clean the lines once a week and you can tell which is a huge deal (there are some places that sadly have so many taps but skimp on cleaning!) .... the food selection was small and they were out of half of it which stuck me with chicken strips and fries (which werenít bad) ....Lunch and 3 brews cost me $25 bucks so it was a good value .... Definitely a place to stop in for a solid micro list and a nice balanced lineup of styles, but I would probably eat elsewhere first .... bathrooms were equal to using an alleyway so you probably want to think of that too before stopping, but hey this is a beer website the beer selection and quality is good!
A biy of a dive bar feel, which i enjoy. Lots of beers on tap, many locals, none of which Iíd go crazy about. Good service, solid.

Small beer bar that almost seems out of place among the gastropubs of Old City. But, that is one of the reasons it rocks so hard. I only spent a little time there on a Saturday afternoon but it left me with a large desire to come back. The tap list was extensive with beers that spanned a wide range of styles and abv levels. The man behind the bar was friendly and willing to wait while my out-of-town friends made up their minds. We were there for happy hour prices so and that was a smile for the wallet. The yards PPA I had was in excellent form. The biggest downer was that I, like others, picked up a noticeable bleach aroma in the joint. Not inviting. Great place to stop after checking out the sites of Old City or just to quench that thirst.
Located in the heart of the Old City, near Chestnut and the good bars on that street (and a cheap cab ride to the Northern Liberties area of the city). Couple of notches above dive bar status, but still a good vibe when you enter. Great tap selection that will keep you thinking about what you want to order next. Menu was limited but the prices were cheap and the food was good. Service was right on target, friendly and attentive, especially considering how busy they were. Definitely on my list of spots to revisit when in Philly.
Heavy smell of bleach but otherwise an old tavern type place with a great selection of draft beer, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful bartenders and patrons. The draft beer selection (about 40) was much larger and better than the bottle selection and included great micros and Belgians. First time Iíve seen an internet jukebox. Specials every night including Mondayís bingo boobies night. Sunday they had a hot dog for a buck that was tasty. On the other end the toilet had a nasty smell. Went twice and watched the Phillies in playoff - good fun! Great pub atmosphere including remanents of itís former ID as a Jaegermeister bar.
Great little gem in the midst of all the overhyped clubs in this part of town. Stumbled into the place for happy hour on a Friday and have been visiting frequently ever since. The craft beer selection is ridiculous.....if you canít find something for your pallet then just ask the bartenders and they will be more than happy to steer you in the right direction. Probablly one of the best draught beers bars in Philadelphia. Definitely one the best valued beer bars in Philly. Bottom line.....great place to enjoy great beer with all walks of life. Good work...keep it up
