Letter from the executive Director of

philly beer week Don russe russeLL

bru ce n

There are just four main ingredients in beer: water, malt, hops and yeast. But it takes a fifth to really enjoy it: friends. The aroma, the flavor, the buzz, the aura—it’s never complete without someone at your side. The festivals, the dinners, the tastings, the neighborhood pub crawls, the pure appreciation of beer—none of it happens without your friends, both old ones you’ve known forever and new ones you’re about to meet. It is this act of sharing we celebrate this week in Philadelphia. Beer drinkers have always recognized the importance of this bond. It is ancient, it is part of our DNA. We must gather around a fire, around a table, along a bar. Laughing, crying, praising, fearing, sharing. We marvel at the craftsmanship that goes into our favorite pint, but we know in our heart that it would taste empty if we couldn’t raise the glass with a friend. I’m tempted to say it tastes just a little bit empty during Philly Beer Week 2011. I lost a friend. In fact, every beer drinker in this city has lost a friend. Bruce Nichols died unexpectedly just after Thanksgiving last year after an incredibly short and nasty fight against leukemia. en Bruce was not a brewer. He didn’t sell beer. Except for a ly fo very brief period as the owner of the HeadHouse on Lombard rD Street, he never ran a bar. But it would not be an overstatement to say that, without Bruce, Philadelphia would not have grown into America’s best beer-drinking city. For years, along with his wife, Beatrice, he ran Museum Catering at the Penn Museum. Over the years, they would serve dinners to the likes of President Clinton, former Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev and rock musician and activist Bono. I imagine they were lavish (if not exactly beer-drinking) affairs. The suds would come in 1991, during the now departed Book and the Cook festival, with Museum Catering organizing the first Michael Jackson-tutored tasting at the Penn Museum. It was this event that would introduce Philadelphia to the world’s pre-eminent beer critic and historian while showcasing a surprising variety of ales and lagers. More importantly, it would introduce hundreds of beer lovers to each other. More than 3,000 people showed up for that event on a cold, rainy Saturday in March. Looking around at the milling crowd—sipping, discovering fine beer in the gracious setting of the museum grounds—it quickly became apparent that you weren’t alone. You weren’t the only one who believed that beer was worthy of appreciation. It felt like the beginning of something. And it was... Jackson would return, year after year, regaling us with his meandering stories. We’d listen and drink and laugh and drink some more, and then the afternoon would end with the swelling sound of a Chinese gong beneath the museum’s soaring rotunda. I wonder how many of us looked up from our souvenir tasting glasses to see Bruce, laughing, smiling and hammering that gong again. Jackson would leave us in 2007. But by then, the annual tasting was an institution; it would serve as one of the linchpins in the creation of Philly Beer Week, and Bruce—along with the organization’s co-founder, Tom Peters of Monk’s Café—would provide its vision. Today, the landscape has spread, from the odd handful of specialty beer destinations (The Khyber Pass, Bridgid’s, The Foodery) to a city where quality beer is no longer the exception, it’s the rule. It is an unparalleled scene. Most other American cities boast three, four, maybe a half-dozen quality beer bars. This year, Philly Beer Week will showcase more than 185 outstanding bars, restaurants, breweries, beer shops, homebrew stores and distributors, throughout the city and into the suburbs and South Jersey. Belgian bars, gastropubs,

Ichols // Photogra

corner bars, ale houses, brewpubs, bars that serve only locally brewed craft beer, bars that serve only exotic imports, stores with 500, 600 … 1,000 different bottles—the scene seems unending. Over the next 10 days, you’ll get a taste of it all, at hundreds of events, in scores of venues. It can be frantic, even daunting. As you elbow your way through a crowded bar or festival, I suggest you take a moment—a moment to savor your beer and your fellow beer drinkers (even the ones, I suppose, wearing New York Mets jerseys). We are all friends. You are the reason, even as we pause to reflect on our loss, that the beer still tastes so good. Raise a toast. Here’s to Bruce! For Philly Beer Week is not just a celebration of beer...

It Is a celebratIon of the

to produce the Official Guide of Philly Beer Week. This year, there’s a big change: Because there are so many events, we can no longer list every one of them inside this guide; for that, we ask you to consult our web site (PhillyBeerWeek.org) or our new and very cool apps for the iPhone and Android. This publication has evolved into a true guide of Philadelphia’s beer scene. We’ve organized the venue listings and other information by neighborhood, with adjoining maps. We turned to beer and neighborhood experts to write adjoining essays, and to help you discover new places alongside old favorites. Also new this year: The With Love Beer Garden at the Four Seasons Hotel on Logan Square. The outdoor garden, sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Tourism and Marketing Corp., is an ideal central meeting place where you can pick up info on all of the week’s great events before heading out to even more fun at area bars and restaurants. Grab a Philly Beer Week souvenir and meet the local brewers responsible for all of this great beer.

June 1, 2011

It’s a daunting task describing Center City bars. Open any door, there’s something for the beer hound to sniff out. Options abound east and west of Broad Street, enough that visiting them all could be a Beer Week all by itself. Why, the blocks between Sansom, Spruce, 15th and 16th Streets alone have more beer per square foot than practically anywhere in the universe. You could linger there for days, and not regret it. monk’s Café (264 S. 16th St., 215.545.7005) is Philly’s finest beer bar. You’ve heard the hype, but to be honest, they’re even better. Space would not allow us to list all the brews debuted and brewers introduced there. Monk-man Tom Peters is among those responsible for envisioning Philly Beer Week. Good beer also flows on 15th Street. good Dog bar (224 S. 15th St., 215.985.9600) has a great selection of brews to fill your doggie bowl and tasty chow (mmm…bleu cheeseburger). mcglinchey’s (259 S. 15th St., 215.735.1259) is a classic taproom. Other than upgrading their beer selection, little has changed in years (except the prices). Next door is Jose Pistola’s (263 S. 15th St., 215.545.4101) dishing out craft beers, tasty Mexicali food and, if you’re lucky, the heavy metal vocal stylings from co-owner Casey Parker and the wit and wisdom of his business partner, Joe Gunn. Set sail for nautical misconduct Tavern (1511 Locust St., 215.732.5797) and enjoy safe harbor! At ladder 15 (1528 Sansom St., 216.964.9755), noted Chef David Ansill dishes up gastropub cuisine. The oyster house (1516 Sansom St., 215.567.7683) has been serving briny crustaceans and fresh seafood since before there was craft beer. Don’t miss a visit to Nodding head brewery & restaurant (1516 Sansom St., 2nd Floor, 215.569.9525). It’s the site of Philly’s first brewery to open since Prohibition, and our most award-winning brewery, too. (Editor’s note: Special kudos for their Great American Beer Fest gold medal-winning Belgian Grand Cru, called George’s Fault, based on a homebrew recipe by the author). You’ll want to wander beyond these few blocks, and one way to explore is to go Irish. mcgillin’s olde Ale house (1310 Drury St., 215.735.5562) holds the city’s oldest liquor license, circa 1860—look for it above the bar. Their tiny street, just south of Chestnut, is hard to find, but their local craft selection makes it worth the effort. Just around the corner, Philly’s favorite Irish son, Fergus Carey, holds court at Fergie’s Pub (1214 Sansom St., 215.928.8118). Tir Na Nog (1600 Arch St., 267.514.1700) offers a more upscale Celtic approach. The black Sheep (247 S. 17th St., 215.545.9473) has a down-home feel, while moriarty’s (1116 Walnut St., 215.627.7676) is perfect for wings. Of course, other cultures abound. For a beer avec un Francais accent, visit Caribou Café (1126 Walnut St., 215.625.9535). Iron Chef Jose Garces presents a very beer-friendly fusion of Cantonese and Peruvian food at Chifa (707 Chestnut St., 215.925.5555). Although Chinatown lacks credible craft beer, Shau lan Kung (930 Race St., 215.928.0282) is BYOB and open late with awesome dumplings for that post-bar crawl sustenance. Tria celebrates fermentation: beer, wine and cheese can be enjoyed at multiple locations. East of Broad, be sure to check out Washington Square (1137 Spruce St., 215.629.9200). West of Broad is the original Tria (123 S. 18th St., 215.922.8742) and their Fermentation School (1601 Walnut St., 215.922.7076) for education and seminars. bar (1309 Sansom St., 267.318.7364) is a comfy no-frills pub augmenting draft with craft cans. Just down the street you’ll find TIme-restaurant, Whiskey bar & Tap room (1315 Sansom St., 215.985.4100) with tasty beer and absinthe making the heart grow fonder. Westbury bar & restaurant (261 S. 13th St., 215.546.5170) brings craft beer to the Gayborhood. Great quaffs, food and pinup art await at Varga bar (941 Spruce St., 215.627.5100). And, finally, there’s lots of buzz surrounding the new kid in town: Farmers’ Cabinet (1113 Walnut St., 215.923.1113). In addition to a bar-side charcuterie, innovative menu and a premium list of imports, it’ll soon be serving their own house-brewed, barrel-aged ales, courtesy of brewer Terry Hawbaker. As you can see, there’s no lack of watering holes to dip your bill. Get off your barstool – there’s more good beer just around the corner.

The casual, lively, bar-driven atmosphere at Amis was inspired in part by visits to Rome’s top brewpubs, where incredibly simple plates of trattoria cuisine marry seamlessly with the best of the raucous Italian beer scene.

P H I L LY B E E R W E E K . O R G

Old City is one of the most-trekked square miles of our city, and for a while, good beer wasn’t a reason why. Most visitors are surely here for Independence Hall, the Constitution Center, the Betsy Ross House and Ben Franklin’s final resting place. But a few good beers in between are encouraged—just be careful on the cobblestones. Beer veterans often say that our city’s original beer bar was Khyber Pass Pub (56 S. 2nd St., 215.238.5888). After a 2010 redux, the pub is tied to its roots more than ever, boasting two beer engines and 22 handles. Cuisine is Cajun/Creole—a culinary concept not overdone in Philly. Five doors down is Brownies (46 S. 2nd St., 215.238.1222) an awesome beer bar that doesn’t advertise itself as such. They’re the only smoking spot in the area that happens to have an interesting tower. Sassafrass (48 S. 2nd St., 215-925.2317) has a jazz duo that will make you feel like you are on vacation in your own city. Chances of you getting out of there without a whiskey aren’t likely. The owners are alumni of eulogy (136 Chestnut St., 215.413.1918), just across the intersection. Eulogy stocks over 400 beers and bar manager Chris Topham believes, “It’s the knowledge of our staff that sets us apart, and helps turn people on to beers that are totally different and exciting.” Trek south a block and you’ll find City Tavern (138 S. 2nd St., 215.413.1443), a reconstruction of the gathering place for our Founding Fathers. Try Yards’ interpretation of George Washington’s Tavern Porter or Thomas Jefferson’s Tavern Ale. Your bonneted barmaid will serve you flights via wooden paddles while the harpsichord plays in the background. On Market St., Mac’s Tavern (226 Market St., 267.324.5507) is best known as the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia bar. Don’t expect to catch a glimpse of Sweet Dee, but I can guarantee you a smattering of craft on draft and five varieties of gravy fries. Newcomer Philadelphia Bar and Restaurant (120 Market St., 215.925.7691) will be hosting PBW’s own Forum of the Gods and a not-to-be-missed “Local Heroes” block party on the first Saturday of Beer Week. Letitia Alley connects them to Triumph Brew Pub (117 Chestnut St. 215.625.0855), best known for their German styles. It’s sleeker than your average brewery and a good place for large groups. A couple blocks north is Sugar Mom’s (225 Church St., 215.925.8219), Philly’s ultimate basement bar complete with juke, pool tables and arcade games. After a strong ale or two, make your ascension to Church Street and stroll to the historic Christ Church and repent… then continue to the Race Street Café (208 Race St., 215.627.6181) where the wintertime wood-burning stove gives way to open windows every spring. The city’s original neighborhood spread south toward Society Hill. Look for the towering condos, and you’ll know you’ve found some of the best hummus a laffa ever seen at Chef Michael Solomonov’s zahav (237 Saint James Place, 215.625.8800). It’s only a couple more blocks till you’re in the middle of the city’s romping South Street scene. The crowds are youthful (make sure you’ve got proper I.D.), and the beer is plentiful. Bridget Foy’s (200 South St., 215.922.1813) is a South Street tradition. On a strip that’s been digressing through the years into more accessories stores than dining destinations, Foy’s remains a true blue. They are a long-time supporter of local beer with a patio that’s the perfect spot to sit and watch South Street strollers. Brauhaus Schmitz (718 South St., 267.909.8814) has served as an excellent and tasteful German replacement for the departed Ludwig’s Garten of Center City. Order sausage by the meter and Hoffbrau by the mass, then toast the bartender with a hearty “Prost!” If you’re looking for a reprieve from the crowds, keep crawling south toward classy Queen Village. The blocks are pleasant and the beers are superb at Southwark (701. S. 4th St., 215.238.1888), adsum (700 S. 5th St., 267.888.7002), Catahoula (775 S. Front St. 215.271.9300), ugly american (1100 S. Front St., 215.336.1100), For Pete’s Sake (900 S. Front St., 215.462.2230) or the green-certified Kennett (848 S. 2nd St. 267.687.1426).

P H I L LY B E E R W E E K . O R G

By Brian parker Vibrant and eclectic, West Philadelphia is the city’s center of higher learning and home of diverse lifestyles. From fraternity houses and quiet university walkways to bustling ethnic restaurants and ageless rowhomes, the neighborhood is impossible to pigeonhole. Same goes for the beer: You’ll find everything from locally brewed wonders to massive tap lists. You’ll want to begin your exploration at the neighborhood’s eastern gateway, 30th Street Station. The train station, which links the city with the western suburbs and the entire eastern metropolis, is located on the corner of 30th & Market streets and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Travelers don’t need even need to leave the station to find the perfect pour. Bridgewater’s pub (2955 Market St., 215.387.4787) is located off of the grand lobby at the southwest corner, giving it possibly the grandest beer selection of any railroad station in America. The dimly lit narrow room with traditional dark wood pub décor and a classic long bar is instantly comfortable. The eight taps rotate frequently through craft and imports, but make sure you look at the bottles, too, where you’ll find unusual German varieties (Innstadt, cellared Schneider Aventinus). The menu mixes standard bar fare with some creative offerings including a pub egg and frog legs. Bridgewater’s Pub is a welcome oasis for any savvy beer traveler. Leaving the station, you’re immediately struck by the diversity, of both the people (all cultures and ages swarm the sidewalks) and the buildings (from shiny modern high-rises to Victorian Frank Furnesses). University City, as this area has been known since the 1950s, is home to a unique mix of academics, professionals, artists and families. The urban neighborhood is a distinctive blend of museums, institutions of higher learning, performance venues, cafés, restaurants, shops and, of course, good beer destinations. The Cira Center on Arch Street is the modern yin to 30th Street Station’s vintage yang. The gleaming glass tower is corporate sexy and its lobby is home to Iron Chef Jose Garces’ JG Domestic (2929 Arch St., 215.222.2363). All menu items are made with products from American farms and the beer is strictly American craft. There are six rotating drafts and lists for both large and small bottles. Kicking back here after work would qualify as true stress relief. To re-energize, stroll over to World Café Live (3025 Walnut St., 215.222.1400) and enjoy an emerging indie band. The cafe beer list is a pleasant surprise. Overtaken with college spirit? Then head west through the University of Pennsylvania. Explore the campus, shop on Walnut Street and then drift into City Tap House (3925 Walnut St., 215.662.0105). This “big man on campus” proudly pours from 60 taps, the most in the city. Add in growler fills, flights and beer dinners, and it’s the perfect places for beer fanatics who need supersized surroundings. Not an Ivy League fan? Check out Midatlantic restaurant & Tap room (3711 Market St., 215.386.3711), whose menu is a combination of urban and rustic, smack on the campus of Drexel University. Just west of the college campuses, Local 44 (4333 Spruce St., 215.222.2337) is a gem for real beer seekers. The corner bar radiates a Euro, old-school vibe with its red walls, dark wood, exposed light bulbs, stained-glass accents and handwritten beer board. Owner Brendan Hartranft constructs a solid rotating list of 18 drafts and two casks. Only two bottle beers are sold, Orval and varying gluten-free options. An inventive pub menu complements the beer list. The Kentucky Hot Brown (Turkey breast, bacon, tomato, parmesan and Mornay sauce) is a winner. Local 44 rules this part of West Philly with a mighty pint in hand. No diverse, beer-centric journey to West Philadelphia is complete without a trip to Dock Street Brewery (701 S. 50th St., 215.726.2337). A pioneer in the craft beer movement in the ’80s, Dock Street was reborn in 2007 after a five-year absence. Owner Rosemarie Certo’s brewery is housed in a refurbished firehouse near Clark Park. Always know for quality beer, Dock Street now offers over 20 specialty pizzas and other pub favorites. Complete the journey with a Rye IPA and toast West Philly’s amazing diversity.

Defining the original boundary between Center City and South Philly, consider South Street as a sort of open-air mall, party zone and three-ring circus, with the volume sliding up as you travel east. The western end of South Street lost the Graduate Hospital around the same time as the leader of its preferred long-running jazz act, Nate Wiley and the Crowd Pleasers; yet both the monikers have stuck around. Catch the late Nate’s trio every Friday and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Bob & Barbara’s (1509 South St., 215.545.4511), a dive known for eclectic entertainment, a legendary Thursday night drag show and the museum of Pabst Blue Ribbon ephemera. And then start exploring the rest of the neighborhood now fondly known as G-Ho. With punky live music venue Tritone (1508 South St., 215.545.0475) just across the street from Bob & Barbara’s, and the mellower, craftier Doobie’s (2201 Lombard St., 215.546.0316) a short walk away, you have three of Philadelphia’s finest dives in close proximity for latenight merrymaking. This is still largely a residential neighborhood, so keep it down to a dull roar as you stroll over to Ten stone (2063 South St., 215.735.9939) for pool, darts and a warming fireplace. When the weather’s fine, the outdoor tables host groups drinking local Golden Monkeys and summery Belgian Vuuves, from brunch through 11 p.m. (After that, the servers shoo them inside.) Palates that appreciate pairing brews with food will find this a destination district. The menu of blackened green beans dipped in remoulade, jambalaya, po’boys and sausage sandwiches tempts until 2 a.m. at tiny Grace Tavern (2229 Gray’s Ferry Ave., 215.893.9580), another outpost of the Tom Peters/Fergus Carey great-beer cartel. Once a typical Schmidt’s-centric neighborhood joint, its beer list ranges from Trappist bottles to blink-and-you’ll-miss-it draft rotations. Follow the mythical “pabbit” to Pub & Kitchen (1946 Lombard St., 215.545.0350) for chef Jonathan Adams’ modern Brit pub fare–and a custom-blended, top-secret La Frieda burger to make meatheads weep—matched with bespoke brews from Brooklyn’s Sixpoint Craft Ales, among other choice picks. With Monday-to-Friday happy hours stretching from 3-7 p.m. and midnight to 2 a.m., The sidecar Bar & Grille (2201 Christian St., 215.732.3429) is one of the wallet-friendliest gastropubs in town. The draft list spans Brouwerij Het Anker’s Cuvee of the Emperor to just-over-the-river Dock Street’s Bubbly Wit, ensuring drinkers will find a mate for their meal, be it pretzel-crusted chicken fingers (half-price during HH) to a “vegetarian dip” of mushroom duxelle and gruyere on grilled brioche. Will the twice-fried chicken of much repute be on the menu at resurrection ale House (2425 Grays Ferry Ave., 215.735.2202) during Beer Week? Only Chef Joey Chmiko knows. If not, tear up his elegant olive oil-braised tuna sandwich, vegan roasted maitake mushroom plate or melty halloumi and arugula salad. Like the times, drafts and cask are always a-changing, except for the everlasting St. Louis Gueuze. Betty’s speakeasy (2241 Grays Ferry Ave., 215.735.9060) isn’t a bar, but you’re welcome to tote your own choices to pair with owner Liz Begosh’s organic, fair-trade, beery sweet treats, like Victorious milk chocolate fudge infused with Victory Lager and swirled with cacao nibs steeped in Storm King, and a new Yards Saison cornmeal cupcake juiced up with ginger and orange, then topped with Saison apricot buttercream. When even cute cupcake shops are stocking the good stuff and touting their BYOB status, you know you’ve found beer nirvana.

In the original 1681 diagram of William Penn’s plan for his “holy experiment” of Philadelphia, a small hill just outside the northwest boundary of the city is identified as Faire Mount. For more than the last century and a quarter, that hill has been crowned with the queenly Philadelphia Museum of Art, home to more than 225,000 great works, not to mention the culmination of Rocky’s iconic run. (Go on, charge up the steps—you won’t be happy unless you do it at least once.) The surrounding Fairmount neighborhood boasts leafy streets lined with gracious three-story rowhomes, the menacing, fortress-like Eastern State Penitentiary historical site, and a bevy of cozy taprooms and cafes pouring stellar brews. Since parking is tight and pubs plentiful, leave the car behind and stroll the shaded lanes instead. Just adjacent to Eastern State, the london Grill (2301 Fairmount Ave., 215.978.4545) keeps taps flowing with rotating local crafts. Check out their Willie Sutton amber lager, custom-brewed by Stoudt’s. Weekday happy hour runs 5-7 p.m., featuring $3 drafts, Sly Fox cans and Usual Suspects bottles, plus chef Michael McNally’s Mini-Menu of $3 bar bites. Ask co-owner Terry Berch McNally about London’s resident friendly ghost. Monk’s Cafe owners Tom Peters and Fergus Carey transplanted their signature mussels and frites with bourbon mayo and staggering array of artisanal beer from ’round the world to one of Fairmount’s prettiest corners with The Belgian cafe (601 N. 21st St., 215.235.3500). Grab an outdoor table under strings of Belgian red-and-yellow globe lights and settle in for an 18-tap trip. If only original gangsters will do, don’t miss one of Philly’s first beer destinations, Bridgid’s (726 N. 24th St., 215.232.3232). Along with daily changing drafts, five Trappists and three true lambics are always available for Belgian devotees. Equal in historical appeal is mccrossen’s Tavern (529 N. 20th St., 215.854.0923), owned and operated as a pub by the McCrossen family since the Depression. When a break from Beer Week is an absolute necessity, lay down $20 for a brunch entree and unlimited Bloody Marys or mimosas, every weekend from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. If nothing from the 43 bottles, 16 drafts, two cans and one cask appeal to you from the hefty list at the Kite and Key (1836 Callowhill St., 215.568.1818), put on your best suit because, bad news: You’re dead. Standouts from local stars Victory, Yards, Sly Fox, Dogfish Head and Lancaster Brewing receive heavy play. Soak up some of the their suds with an order of regionally-apt spicy Italian sausage fondue. Realtors tried to dub the streets around East Spring Garden the “Loft District,” but to movie geeks, it will always be the Eraserhead neighborhood. David Lynch took inspiration from the area’s abandoned industrial sites for his seminal creepout; now Prohibition Taproom (501 N. 13th St., 215.238.1818) provides the warmth missing in the director’s Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts day. Cozy up to the handmade wooden bar (with protruding islands that solve the six-at-the-rail dilemma), peruse the draft list, and don’t miss the tempura-fried green beans. Just a skip away is The institute (549 N. 12th St., 267.318.7772), where 16 drafts refresh visitors seeking a TV-equipped booth to catch the Fightin’ Phils, or just a plate of their famous pumpkin mac ‘n’ cheese.

P H I L LY B E E R W E E K . O R G

The ghosts of Philadelphia beer are smiling on the streets of Northern Liberties. This is where it all began. Over there on Callowhill Street is where Robert Hare created his world-famous porter for George Washington. Down by the river is where Robert Smith—trained at the Bass Brewery in Burton-on-Trent—brewed his hoppy India pale ale. And on Fourth Street, a cask-maker hammered staves. You can still see the remnants—the hulking shell of the long-defunct Ortlieb’s bottling building; the “Schmidt’s” sign at the Piazza that now carries its name; the historical marker for America’s first lager, brewed near American and Poplar streets by a German immigrant named John Wagner; the tiny rowhouses where brewery workers lived. Luckily for 21st-century beer lovers, there are more than just remnants here. Northern Liberties is a one-of-a-kind destination, worth a full day’s worth of exploration, with ample stops for refreshment. Take the Frankford El to Girard Avenue, and walk one block east on Girard to Johnny Brenda’s (1201 Frankford Ave., 215.739.9684). This is Fishtown, where the blocks are in mid-gentrification and the beer scene is just sprouting. You can hang here and wait for a live show upstairs in JB’s totally cool music venue, or head down the block for fresh, local bar food and a big tap list at Kraftwork (541 E Girard Ave., 215.739.1700). But you’re ultimately headed for Northern Liberties, so walk two long blocks east on Girard to Second Street. Yes, it’s a bit trashy, but it’s safe (a trolley runs along Girard if you don’t want to hike). The tiny rowhouses and storefronts are a hint of this section’s long history, of working-class families living side- by-side, with factories, tanneries, claypits and brickyards. Second and Girard is the site of the former Schmidt’s Brewery, once one of the 10 largest in America. It’s long gone, replaced with a unique urban shopping center and boutique mall called the Piazza at Schmidt’s. The square is lined by galleries, funky shops and watering holes, including Gunner’s run (1001 N. 2nd St., 215.923.4600) and burgercentric P.y.T. (1050 N. Hancock St., 215.964.9009). Just across the street, Bar Ferdinand (1030 N. 2nd St., 215.923.1313) will pair fine drafts with small tapas plates, while Cantina dos segundos (931 N. 2nd St., 215.629.0500) will pour you a cold one to cool off after spicy Mexican. Continue down Second Street to the center and heart of Northern Liberties, a widened pair of blocks between Poplar and Fairmount Avenues. The buildings on either side have been home to workshops and small businesses since the Revolution. It was here that Deringer made his pistols, Disston made his saws and Sprague wove the carpet for the U.S. Capitol. Today, the buildings have being repurposed as restaurants, boutiques and galleries, but you can still feel the history—especially at standard Tap (901 N. 2nd St., 215.238.0630). This restaurant virtually launched the entire American gastropub craze, with its pairing of locally brewed drafts and hearty American fare by chef Carolynn Angle. Don’t overdo it, though—there’s much more. Abbaye (637 N. 3rd St., 215.627.6711) gives the comfy corner bar a Belgian twist; n. 3rd (801 N. 3rd, 215.413.3666) is quirky and fun; 700 Club (700 N. 2nd St., 215.413.3181) is retro; north Bowl (909 N. 2nd St., 215.238.2695) will let you work up a sweat with pins and pints. Don’t leave this neighborhood without a suitable memento! Drop by The Foodery (837 N. 2nd St., 215.238.6077) and dazzle yourself with more than 800 different beers to go. Or make your way toward the river and pick up a batch of ESA or Brawler at the brewery pub inside yards Brewing Co. (901 N. Delaware Ave., 215.634.2600). And then take a quick walk up Poplar to American Street and pay homage to Northern Liberties’ beer and history. On the left is part of the now-closed Ortlieb’s Brewery, home of Joe’s Beer. On your right is a plaque marking the site of the tiny brewhouse where John Wagner made America’s very first lager. Grab your camera phone and snap a photo. Or better yet, come back soon for another beer.

Bar Ferdinand came about as a part of the natural evolution of Owen Kamihira’s career as a restaurant designer and consultant. He envisioned an anchor establishment in the Northern Liberties community for neighbors to go for great tapas, wine, and conversation. His love for Spanish culture, combined with the right opportunity and timing, turned Bar Ferdinand from concept to reality.

In Northwest Philly, it’s the diversity of both the establishments and the geography that’s most striking. From the old river ward of Manayunk, to the stately avenues of Mt. Airy, to the leafiness of the urban wonder that is the Wissahickon, the Northwest offers a broad range of sights and flavors. Manayunk is known mainly for Main Street; hip, lively and colorful. Here, the beer lover can make a day of checking the tap lists of more than a dozen restaurants that stretch along a few, well-worn blocks. Start at the west end with Cooper’s Brick oven Wine Bar (4365 Main St. 215.483.0444) where the beer is as good as the grape. From there, just keep poking your head in door after door, till you find your way to manayunk Brewery & Restaurant (4120 Main St., 215.482.8220). If the sun is out, grab a glass of Schuylkill Punch and find a seat on the outside deck with a view of the canal. A good part of Manayunk’s charm, though, can be discovered beyond Main Street. Just beyond the SEPTA overhead rail line, you’ll land at Dawson street pub (100 Dawson St., 215.482.5677), a watering hole synonymous with beer. Owner Dave Wilby once told me that Dawson, his pride and joy for many years (he even lives above the venue) was the first Philly bar to carry Yards, the city’s first microbrewery. Dawson’s dim lighting and dark woods set the mood for a night of fresh cask beer poured from three hand pumps. The hilly, former mill town of Manayunk is home to several other unassuming but beerworthy neighborhood taverns: the old Eagle Tavern (3938 Terrace St., 215.483.5535), the Terrace Taproom (3847 Terrace St., 215.555.2222) and Union Jack’s (4801 Umbria St., 215.482.8980). Here’s a secret: Check out the Terrace street Bistro (3989 Terrace St., 215.508.2775) on Thursday nights when chef/owner Josh Hunter serves complimentary bottles of his own homebrew. Continue upward into Roxborough, then back down to the Wissahickon via Wise Mill Road. At the bottom in the park, you’ll find the Valley Green inn (Valley Green Road, 215.247.1730). The Inn may be one of the city’s last remaining roadhouses, now serving as a respite for joggers, hikers and bikers of Forbidden Drive. A salmon salad and a cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on the front porch is the perfect lunch. Cross over Fairmount Park and you’ll land in diverse Mt. Airy. Here, you’ll find a unique venue in the Trolley Car Diner & Deli (7619 Germantown Ave., 215.753.1500). Sure, it’s got great deli selections and down-home diner options. But what’s great about this joint is the wide—and I’m talking wide—selection of beer to go. Up the avenue, into Chestnut Hill, you’ll find old-school haunts with thoughtful beer selections, including the mermaid inn (7673 Germantown Ave. 215.247.9797), Campbell’s place (8337 Germantown Ave., 215.242.1818), and the home of the Schmitter, mcnally’s (8634 Germantown Ave., 215.247.9736). Bonus: Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant will be opening in Chestnut Hill later this year. Down the avenue? That’s where you’ll find another of the city’s brewpubs, Earth Bread + Brewery (7136 Germantown Ave., 215.242.6666), and the family-owned mcmenamin’s Tavern (7170 Germantown Ave., 215.247.9920). Venturing back to Center City, you can’t help but pass through the up-and-coming neighborhood of East Falls. Nestled at the end of Fairmount Park’s Kelly Drive, it’s a homey neighborhood where Midvale Avenue features blue collar families on one side of the street and mansions worthy of movie stars (e.g. Grace Kelly) on the other.

June 1, 2011

For generations, South Philly has been best known for the wonderfully garish neon-lit cheesesteak war zone at 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue. Rocky ate here, presidents have munched here and beer drinkers have inevitably ended up here after closing time. But in the last five years, the Passyunk diagonal—with its Italian restaurants, boutiques and record stores—has become deeply invested as one of the city’s premier craft beer destinations, augmented by many outstanding tap lines on the peripheral. Although these bars are in close proximity, this zone is a hike from Center City. You’ll need some ambition (not to mention a cab or public transportation), but you can do it all in a day. Start at the South Philly Tap Room (1509 Mifflin St. 215.271.7787), just two short blocks from the Snyder Avenue stop on the Broad Street subway (making it an ideal stop before or after a Phillies game). Chef Scott Shroeder has made a name for himself across town for personality-infused pub fare. Even his burger is topped with house-made beer mustard. They switch up their taps so often, they use chalk-board handles. It’s the No. 1 Founders account outside of Michigan, so expect to get yourself into some Double Trouble. Across the street you’ll find BReW (1900 S. 15th St., 215.339.5177) for a grab-and-go or a sip-and-stay. Or order one of the best cups of coffee in the city to jolt up while you walk to your next stop. Cross Broad and onto Passyunk for the Giro D’Italia of Suds. La Virtu (1927 E. Passyunk Ave., 215.271.5626) is that most unusual of combinations: a primo Abruzzese-style trattorio with fine beer. Enjoy the house-made spicy Calabrian salami and a glass of River Horse Hop Hazard in the outdoor beer garden. A couple doors down, the newly opened Sticks and Stones (1909 E. Passyunk Ave. 215.468.0999) has head bartender Elvis Walsh, who will make as much of an impression on you as the lineup he’s pouring. At 13th and Passyunk, an intersection known for its semi-erotic King of Jeans sign, don’t miss the hole-in-the-wall Lucky 13 (1820 S. 13th St., 215.336.8467). You’ll be greeted by owner Clark Newman and the Clash (big poster alongside the entrance). The taps are classics, and you’ll enjoy them with some of South Philly’s classic characters. This is a locals bar, and one of the best of its kind in the city. Next up is The Bottle Shop (1837 E. Passyunk Ave. 215.551.5551), another takeout where you can collect a few 750s and head to Fond, a BYOB. Or troop a block east to Watkins drinkery (1712 S. 10th St., 215.339.0175) where the menu lists nothing over $10. Think succulent sweetbreads…venison, escargot and elk. Think of a meat bar for the craft beer lover. Your first thought at Cantina Los Caballitos (1651 E. Passyunk Ave. 215.755.3550) might be margaritas, but the tap list is worth a thought, too. Next, it’s time for a mandatory gelato break at Capogiro (1625 E. Passyunk Ave., 215.462.3790). Then, foodies should stop at Green aisle Grocery (1618 E. Passyunk Ave., 215.465.1411) across the street, a boutique food-stuff store with beer–loving owners who host frequent samplings. If Led Zeppelin were to meet the Black Keys for a beer, it might have to be at the P.o.P.e. a.k.a. the Pub on Passyunk east (1501 E. Passyunk Ave. 215.755.5125). It has a classic tavern vibe that even baby boomers embrace, as they co-exist amid the young and the hipster. Once known for its dungeon-esque feel, the bar has opened up and now sunshine flows into the front room. The tap list is always top-notch and reasonably priced. Plan on entering the devil’s den (1148 S. 11th St., 215.339.0855) around happy hour. Why? Can you say half-price drafts? This is also one of the prime places to watch any game while deciding between the 16 ever-rotating beers on draft. Head east on Ellsworth to 9th Street to Teri’s (1126 S. 9th St., 267.761.9154) and you’ll find good times personified. There are varying music themes every night ranging from old soul to new wave. You could plow forward, of course. The Royal Tavern (937 E. Passyunk Ave., 215.389.6694), The dive Bar (947 E. Passyunk Ave., 215.465.5505), The Wishing Well (767 S. 9th St., 215.238.6555) and 12 Steps down (831 Christian St., 215.238.0379) lie ahead. Or you could just take a break and soak it up with a sandwich. Pat’s and Geno’s still illuminate the avenue but with that light comes the line. You can wait it out at South Philly Bar and Grill (1235 E. Passyunk Ave., 215.334.3300) or head over to the new sandwich shop in town: Paesano’s Philly Style (1017 S. 9th St., 215.440.0371). That’s where craft beer drinkers head for an Arista, a whole roasted suckling pig, Italian long hots, broccoli rabe and sharp Provolone.

By steve hawk

Philadelphia may be the best beer-drinking city in America, but the beer community doesn’t stop at the city limits. Beer geeks who don’t live in Philly can more than satisfy their cravings at some cutting-edge beer bars and brewpubs in the ‘burbs. We begin in historic Bucks County, the section of the suburbs where this humble author grew up. There’s a bar in the quaint town of Hulmeville that’s fast becoming one of the best in the region. the hulmeville Inn (4 Trenton Rd., Hulmeville, 215.750.6893) operates in a 200+ year-old building that was once a stagecoach stop between Trenton and Philadelphia. It hosts a beer school and a homebrew club. And now it’s providing space for a nanobrewery launching on the second floor. Moving west along the Pennsylvania Turnpike into Montgomery County, the Iron abbey Gastro Pub (680 N. Easton Rd., Horsham, 215.659.9600) awaits. Imagine a fullon, big-screen soccer bar designed liked a medieval tavern; you’ll feel like you’ve entered an old-world European pub, complete with high ceilings, exposed wood and a generous amount of stone. Its traditional English menu mixes in Mediterranean dishes with over 300 varieties of Belgians, imports and microbrews. The western suburbs extend far and wide, so many of its best places are singular destinations. But here’s a tip: Grab the old SEPTA R5 (now known as the Paoli/Thorndale rail line) for an afternoon of stops to the Flying Pig (121 E. King St., Malvern, 610.578.9208), Mckenzie Brew house (240 Lancaster Ave., Malvern, 610. 296.2222), Teresa’s Next Door (124 N. Wayne Ave., Wayne, 610.293.9909) and Gullifty’s (1149 E. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr, 610.525.1851). Crossing the bridge into New Jersey leads to more cutting-edge beer bars. the high street Grill (4 High St., Mount Holly, N.J., 609.265.9199) occupies a quaint, 200-year-old building, but it’s more than ambiance that makes this place special. This establishment takes dining seriously and makes it a point to create menu items that pair well with its beer selection. They even hold a competition called “Beer Wars,” where local breweries go head-to-head in pairing their brews to a special menu. Winners are chosen by the attendees, who enjoy good food, great beer and live jazz music in the process. Haddon Township (named for Englishman John Haddon, who bought the land in 1700, but never made it to the colonies) offers not one or two, but an entire lineup of great places to enjoy a cutting-edge beer. Cork (90 Haddon Avenue, Westmont, N.J., 856.833.9800) is both a fine-dining restaurant and sophisticated tap room. You’ll find a draft beer selection of 15 micro and Belgian beers, as well as bottled beer from all over the world. You can also enjoy a nice glass of wine from their celebrated wine cellar, if you’re into that sort of thing. If you’d rather pair your drinking with a game, then try P.J. whelihan’s (700 Haddon Avenue, Haddon Township, N.J., 856-427-7888). It’s one of several outposts in a sports bar chain throughout South Jersey and the western Philly suburbs. Its cousin, the Pour house (124 Haddon Ave., Westmont, N.J., 856.849.4600) features an expanded craft beer selection, 20 rotating taps, a large bottle list and an extremely fresh oyster bar. Finally, no matter where you are in the ‘burbs, chances are you won’t need to go far to enjoy a beer at the Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant. This small chain of brewpubs has five locations in Pennsylvania, two locations in Delaware, and one in Maple Shade, New Jersey. It’s an award-winning company that prides itself on its distinctive, full-flavored beers and inspired American cuisine. So my fellow beer geeks, you’re options are open. Whether you wish to drive far, stay in your neighborhood, or go somewhere you’ve never been before, you’re likely to find a cutting-edge beer bar nearby. The fact is, Philly is America’s best beer-drinking city…and suburbs. Here are a few other recommended suburban destinations: victory Brewing (420 Acorn Lane, Downingtown, 610.514.7000), sly Fox Brewhouse and eatery (520 Kimberton Road, Phoenixville, 610.935.4540) and its brother, sly Fox Brewery & Restaurant (312 N. Lewis Road, Royersford, 610.948.8088), and Oakmont National Pub (31 E. Eagle Road, Havertown, 610.789.4000).
