    The Happy Pig is one of the best sandwiches I've ever had ever! Delicious. Monkey Knife Fight was also a winner, but beware it is very lemony. If you don't like lemon don't get that. I'll be back!

    Walking around? Go upstairs, have a seat at the bar, order the hoppy BPA and have a nice chat with the bartender and other clients. Really pleasant and relaxing. Seems you're not in the city!

    This is worth the stop, stairs can be a little treacherous after a long night however. Also there are a couple window hightops that make for some good people watching as there must be a club near by.

    The menu features starters, sandwiches and several entrees that are designed to work with their great selection of ales, porter, and fresh brews. Excellent vegan dishes are also offered. Read more

    everyone raving about the wings is totally right. GET THE THAI WINGS! they're not that spicy but the sauce is crazy good. if you like muscles, get those too, even the half pot is a lot. great beer

    I was looking for a good beer somewhere in center city and came across this one. They make their own beer! Several choices. Good stuff. $1 off drafts for happy hour.

    Get the chipotle BBQ quesadilla... AMAZING!! Best I've ever had! The bourbon jalapeño mayo that comes with the fries is something to write home about...

    The Grog is fantastic the mussels are spectacular. Throw in a order of their delicious hummus and you have a great late night meal

    "Monkey Knife Fight" is a great beer to start the day with. Work your through the other beers as you want, but be sure to get a glass of "Rufus". The "Rufus" is a must have beer.

    Great brewery & restaurant tucked away off Sansom St. in Philly. Excellent IPA's and Ale's on tap that pair well with their charcuterie platter. Also, If you're a fan of mussels, this is the spot! Read more

    Try the Zephyr. Nice smooth and not overly hoppy. Even on the tongue. Easy drinking on a Sunday afternoon.

    Love the sour beer that's currently on tap. The buffalo sauce for the wings is pretty solid too.

    Definitely get the chicken and waffles with caramelized apples on top. It's just one of the best things available to consume... ON EARTH!!!!

    It's mussels are amazing as well as their beer selection. Just ask our own Mayor (of Philadelphia) who frequents this brew pub.

    Food is good.......had the tandoori burger which was a great combo of flavors. The only problem with this particular venue is that the service is VERY slow. Took over 15 minutes for service

    Don't normally make a big deal of wings. But try the Thai wings. Sweet, spicy and delicious.

    Uma bela porcaria! Fomos extremamente mal atendidos... Fiquei até surpreso! A cerveja vale a pena, mas o ambiente é tosco e fedorento. Não aconselho.
