Not Your Standard Fare - Standard Tap, Philadelphia

Standard Tap 901 N. 2nd St. Philadelphia, PA 19123

This past weekend I went to the Standard Tap in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. The atmosphere is supremely cool and a little funky. The crowd is pretty laid back, like they probably don't frequent trendy "spots" or "clubs". Too many times the dudes you run into are hard guys looking for action of some kind, but I don't think I spotted a single jabroni in the crowd.

But onto the beer! The selection is exceptional. There is a wide range of styles on hand, from dry stout to weiss and even TWO hand-pumped cask ales. All this variety and get this: It's all REGIONAL. Straight out of the Beermuda Triangle come brews from Victory, Weyerbacher, Flying Fish, Sly Fox, Troegs, and many others.

I haven't yet mentioned the jukebox -- its a great eclectic mix of non-traditional rockin' and groovy stuff. Haven't tried the food, but I'll let you know next time. Til then, bear in mind that the Standard Tap is anything but. So go and check it out for yourself. Highly recommended!
